Jolien Hampson - MA Show

"For my project I hope to develop my understanding of what it takes to be an illustrator, particularly with regards to children's books." said Jolien 

"Through researching and comparing work from well-known artists I have realised that the most honest form of expression is simplicity. Stripping back all of the unnecessary components and using the story and characters as a guide. By doing so it can allow the reader to form their own opinions and find their own meanings in the work. I have chosen the theme of bereavement for the book because I believe it is a subject that children long to understand. They question it and can sometimes be fearful of the lack of answers or acknowledgement on this subject.

The book allows the child to breach the subject and in some small way begin the process of accepting its place in life."
