Gippslandia: Why do you love illustration?
I love to illustrate as it helps to break up large amounts of text and has the power to distil an article through imagery. The storytelling, context and imagination that an illustration can contribute to text is important to me as a reader. I love reading magazines and publications with illustrations because they add a sense of play to the text.
Why do you enjoy contributing to Gippslandia?
Gippslandia is community-focused, and the team are always organised when it comes to delivering briefs. I feel connected to the people of Gippsland when working on illustrations, which helps to make my work feel more meaningful. Gippslandia magazine is always up for anything and doesn’t put creative restraints on the projects - which is inspiring and builds a trusting relationship between my work and the publication.
