Illustrated work for Exhibition.

Goof Proof (Title of work) Exhibition ‘Images 33 The Best of Contemporary Illustration 2009

‘Images’ provides a showcase of the most influential, innovative and prestigious contemporary British Illustration selected for the ‘Images’ annual. Work is jury selected for the annual and exhibition (Maggie Murphy – Art Director, The Guardian & Richard Robinson – Art Director, Leo Burnett). A smaller number of works are selected for a national tour.
The work selected was a commissioned and published illustration which appeared in ‘H- The Hotel Magazine’ published by William Reed Business Media in June 2008.

This work is part of a continued research directed towards editorial illustration. I’m interested in the role of the editorial illustrator and how different illustrators develop a strategic approach and structure, through their unique working process, in the development of an individual ‘voice’.
When textual information is ‘given’ to an illustrator rather than chosen by them, with a tendency to be diverse in subject matter and tone, it requires the editorial illustrator to establish a conceptual approach which is adaptable in terms of producing appropriate ideas.
As such I’m concerned with the way this positions editorial illustration beyond mere visualisation and how a unique and recognisable ‘voice’ is derived.
Editorial illustration forms an important part of my academic work and is a fundamental part of the teaching and learning programme where the focus is on investigating and understanding creative responses to ‘given’ textual information.
