The main focus that this work revolve around is that of the Victorian style and the Art Nouveau . These eras have been an inspirational influences that allowed to develop my concept of work further.
To explore different illustrative genre eras that will help me to further develop my conceptual understanding of illustration work.
As Jim Jarmusch states ”
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery – celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
