“Cabinets of curiosities, or Kunstkabinett, Wunderkammer, Kunstkammer.”
Wunderkammer is an annual printed publication that Falmouth University offers to it’s final year Illustration students as a means to promote their soon-to-be graduate’s work. The brief was simply – create a piece that is both cruious in nature and displays my unique visual language.
I chose to create a narrative illustration based upon an ancient Greek mythological tale; titled ‘Melampus’. It’s a short story about a man who rescues and subsequently rears two snakes found on his land and one night they repay his kind actions with the mystical ability to understand all flying and creeping creatures.
