Summer Churchill : Omelas

Books

Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
A personal response to the book, 'The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas' by Ursula K. Le Guin. A story of a utopian city with a dark underbelly. A child must be kept in constant misery in the basement of the city, so that the people of Omelas may live in a perfect society.

How was the illustration used:
webcomic

How did you make this work:
This is a webcomic and I wanted to use animation to suggest an atmosphere of disquiet, which is foreshadowed in the book. I utilised a limited colour palette to illustrate the beauty of the city changing as the city's dark truths and the reader's realisation sets in. The story poses a moral quandary and it was this aspect that I chose to explore further, with a character and his decision to leave.

Biography:
I am an illustrator who enjoys creating editorial, gif, and sequential imagery. My works employ a limited colour palette with bold shapes and a simple line. Music, fashion and people and just some of the main influences that are present in my illustrations and as much as I like to create work that is atmospheric and beautiful, I also enjoy making imagery that is purely fun, loose and lighthearted.
