As part of the creative output for my honours dissertation project, I illustrated four poems in two different visual styles each to explore what influence the imagery has on the reader's understanding of the written text.​​​​​​​
This first visual interpretation of Crosbie Garstin's poem The Figurehead (translated into Afrikaans as 'Die Boegbeeld' by Magda van Biljon) featured narrative illustrations resulting in a children's book format. The illustrations were created using gouache. Photos by Jean Minnaar.
Enjoy!
