Tales of Mood and Memory


My work has been Highly Commended in the Cheltenham Illustration Awards Emerging Talent category. 


Illustrators were invited to submit entries on the theme of ‘Mood and Memory’ with an emphasis on narrative illustration. The brief was to create a personal, visual response initiated by Holst's symphony The Planets. Holst imbued each planet with characteristics which were representative of the human life cycle, from youth to old age, beginning with Mars, energetic and bombastic, ending with esoteric Neptune, alone, facing the mystical unknown.

The work will be exhibited in October as part of the Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, 4 -13 October 2013 in association with the Holst Birthplace Museum.
