Fahrenheit 451

Illustrations for Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. It’s been a while since I did any illustration for a set text. I tried to steer clear of the the images of fire and burning books, instead I tried to focus on the notion of flight and it’s association with freedom that is mentioned throughout the book.

The Library

Daily life

Counter current

The unknown

Loved this project and the ideas generation which was greatly aided by Ray Bradbury’s brilliant imagery. The last two were particularly fun to do and working in new ways. Working big and really filling white space, intensive drawing and drawing light on dark.
