Six Characters In Search Of An Author


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This series of digital illustrations is inspired by a play called Six Characters In Search Of An Author by Luigi Pirandello. This short play is full of plot twists and the interactions among the characters provide me with the ideas to create plot-rich illustrations.

How was the illustration used:
This is a project for my self exploration and it is created as a part of my portfolio.

How did you make this work:
Because the play is about characters exploring fiction and reality, kinship and alienation, I want to turn these conflicts of the plot into visuals. As a result, I combine hatching and big color blocks, flat shapes and realistic renderings in this set of illustrations.
