I did these illustrations a while ago for Quality Improvement Magazine but I figure that most of you do not subscribe to that particular publication. I was prompted to blog them this morning after seeing somebody else's illustration on the front of The Independent on Sunday magazine.
Alison Gibb - Artist and Writer. Since completing a BA (hons) in Fine Art at Goldsmiths College in 1998, Alison has worked predominately in the Arts as a project manager and creative consultant. Supporting artists to raise their profiles and to make good affordable art and design available to a wider audience. Creatively she has continued to produce a variety of text-based and performance artworks, facilitated art and poetry workshops for young people and is currently studying on a Creative Writing MA at Kingston University. Continuing her interest in gesture and language, narrative and storytelling and high-art vs low-art, Alison has produced a series of poetic narrative posters inspired by pop song lyrics around the themes of love and loss.
I have just completed a new print in collaboration with Alison Gibb. Designed by me, written by Alison and printed by us both, 'Late Night Love Songs- Heart FM' uses nostalgic love-song lyrics to create a narrative poem that celebrates the emotional turmoil of having-the-hots for someone.
