Why did you make this work:
The work was made as part of a non-fiction illustration book project. The book tracks the journey of a parcel from the factory to its final customer, travelling through oceans, cities, sorted through fulfilment factories and international ports, on a voyage via trucks, cargos and conveyor belts; it's a whole ordeal!

How was the illustration used:
The illustrations were part of the whole publication.

How did you make this work:
The work was made digitally by combining analogue means and digitally drawn elements. All of the illustrations were made as part of my studies and were ultimately printed and bound using a Risograph printer.
