BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation

Ria Smythe

The inspiration behind my work is to take a subject /brief and break it down into its most basic form. Playing and reforming with the aspects of size, line, and texture I experiment with the visual concepts of the subject.

My illustrations are a culmination of these processes and brought together by using mediums such as; mono prints, ink stains, watercolour and line drawing.  Out of this I create a naive, whimsical illustration that contains all the original detail and character of the subject but in a stylised format ideally suiting an editorial feature.
