Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
'Blue things' is my major project at Kingston University. Taking blue as the research object, I created a non-fiction picture book about the colour of blue. Blue has a tortuous history. The ancient Romans thought that blue was a low colour. However, it was valued by people in the Middle Ages, and even became people's favourite colour.

How was the illustration used:
A non-fiction Picture book for children aged 5-12 years old.

How did you make this work:
I use muti-different materials like watercolour, gouache, colour pencil etc. then using digital collages to finish every single piece.
