INKTOBER 2021Digital illustrations, and fictional prose.
This work is part of the ongoing Vide Magmas project, an imaginary girl gang of six characters, each a refracted piece of the artists identity. This set of digital illustrations were made in response to Inktober prompts created by artist Furry Little Peach.
The set became a kind of sketchbook. The initial ‘sketch’ for each prompt was begun as a rough piece of fictional prose featuring one of the six gang members and an accompanying emotion. The writing was then used as a way to visualise a scene that was illustrated. Much like the preceding project ‘Lockdown Quest’, this set of digital drawings built on the idea of a self-mythology, experimenting with playful methods of narrative construction and worldbuilding. The fictional girl gang and their imaginary universe are like a sandbox mode for the artist’s identity, a processing space for slippery ideas.
