Student project illustration using collage, watercolour and ink on paper.
The brief required an illustrated response to themes of racial injustice and devision in the 1920’s Louis Armstrong song ‘Black and Blue’.
The little girl looks up at a high fashion poster of a white woman. A dark bue wash was used to create a iluminous glow from the poster. Collage elements were used sparingly to add texture but still keeping the image coherent.
