Cheltenham Illustration Awards Submission

This is a narrative I created and illustrated for the Cheltenham Illustration Awards. The brief was to come up with a narrative on the subject, ‘The tales of magical objects’. Central to the theme were amulets and charms that are believed to have a spiritual power. Another source of inspiration was the collection in the Pit Rivers Museum in Oxford, which has an amazing collection of artifacts from all over the world which go back centuries. There is a great online virtual navigation function which shows every corner of the museum and object in detail and can be found here . I definitely enjoyed working on the narrative and the subjects, I’m sure they will return in projects in the future. The title I used for this was ‘Praying For Rain’.
