The Poets Field
Illustration / University / Spring 2021
I really love poetry — the emotional quality, the rich language and vivid descriptions make for the perfect illustration prompts. Each week for 4-5 weeks I took one poem that related to nature from the Public Domain, reworked the language to be more accessible for young, contemporary readers and illustrated the scene depicted. I learned how important trusting your instinct and not overworking ideas is through this project. My hope is to turn this project into a children’s book eventually.
