A Year in Illustration
Ego to Eco
Produced in response to a brief entitled Ego to Eco, Phipps produced a diorama made up of layers of hand cut paper, to represent how she feels when she is in nature.
Ego to Eco Lit Up
Phipps decided to light up the piece to emphasise my experience of nature, particularly the intricacy and shadows of the foliage.
Patterns of behaviour.
A digital print made up of hand drawn biro and watercolour birds and wildflowers all native to Britain. The brief was to create a pattern to be used to encourage people to use public transport.
Patterns of behaviour Mockup
A mock up of Phipps' pattern on the train seating.
Flower field.
This outcome is in response to Phipps' own brief. Made up of layered paper the patterns were all created using watercolours, oil pastels and coloured pencils. The aim of this brief was to produce prints which represent the places they inspire with a focus on mindfulness.
Happy place
For both prints, Phipps took inspiration from her own experiences, thinking about escapism. She picked places which are memorable to her for being happy. Phipps used how she felt when she was there to generate the patterns and colour. She wants people to feel calm looking at this piece.
