Working on the Journals has allowed me to experiment with illustrative illusion to communicate in visually interesting ways, gathering information from walking, sketching, and taking photographs, and working in my studio on drawings that help to explain and enhance the reader’s understanding and enjoyment of the text. I would say that the most interesting drawings to do are the overviews (probably inspired by reading too many Rupert stories), which, while not topographically correct try to give the reader an idea of a complete landscape and evoke a ‘sense of place’.
