We have been tasked with creating illustrated “banners” for the Hay Festival 2017. These will be displayed at the site and are to be based around the idea of trees.
I have started by researching how trees can be translated into illustration.
I decided that I would look at the idea of fairy tales as trees are a common theme in these and will link to the idea of the Hay festival being a literary festival.
I looked specifically at stories that focused on trees and plants at specific points of the story, “Hansel and Gretel” and “Sleeping Beauty”, and eventually decided to focus on “Little Red Riding Hood”. I then drew out a quick plan of how it could look.
After a tutorial it was suggested that instead of focusing showing the progress of the story, that I should try to make the scene interactive and have it so children can look at the image and have to find things hidden in the forest.
