Featured Artist: Joanne Young
“I am a emerging UK based Illustrator who has recently finished an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art.
My work concentrates around the themes of extreme scale, dramatic use of light and strange environments. I aim to create artwork that has energy, movement and a sense of wonder. The inspiration for my work often stems from my ideas and opinions regarding environmental issues and I attempt to create narratives that incorporate topical issues within a fictional environment. I enjoy best when I am working at a large scale, mostly in graphite and coloured pencils, to create imagery that is bold and colourful but is also sensitive.”
