Creating characters

IMAG0464_1 IMAG0466_1

I have collected images of people on the streets of Huddersfield, to begin the text and image project. Collaboratively my group have come up with the idea of creating stories and histories of strangers we have never met, and incorporating the stories into images that we collect.

This project is quite a good starting point to begin creating narratives. as this is one of teh most interesting parts of illustration I believe this project will help me understand this better. The idea of creating personalities/lives for people, comes from researching an artist called Gillian wearing who’s work is very thought provoking, one of which consists of an image of a well-off man holding a sign which says ‘im desperate’.
