Image making No.2

Although I was reasonably pleased with the watercolour illustrations for the Mythology book, I wanted to try a different approach. Cardboard cutouts have been arranged and photographed to depict the forces of nature. I think they create a stronger set of visuals than the previous illustrations - by making something 3D they also lean towards the sculpture/monument aspect of mythology, in a way.

They were also pretty fun to make. A little messy, mind...
