In the Bush with Mother Nature | Monstrous Regiment Publishing

What I did: concept creation | Illustration

What the client needed

An artwork around the theme of green to be printed in Monstrous Regiment‘s Literary Magazine Emerald which was first published in 2018.

My part of the project

As the brief for this artwork was open, I first began thinking about the images of nature that the colour green evokes while sitting on a train from Edinburgh to Glasgow. It made me think  nostalgically about romantic dates in the Scottish countryside, and about how nearly everybody seems to go on them. This, however, makes them not unique at all, but we all seem to think that they are. To this end, I drew In the Bush with Mother Nature to muse about our perception of unique love.
