Quotes and Sayings Book 2013
Every year Falmouth 3rd year Illustration students get to make a book for people to see. It's really exciting and I can't wait to see everyone's pages.
I've chosen a quote from one of my favourite poems, which is Tennyson's 'Maud.' It's so lyrical with heaps of atmosphere and swings of emotion; I picked, 'Come into the garden Maud, for the black bat night has flown.' It's a line which is full of hope, but it has a strangeness to it. I wanted to try and evoke the light which creeps in through an early morning mist, with Maud in an unusual wooded scene, the flowers awake around her.
