Brisbane Writers Festival, 2018


An annual celebration of ideas, Brisbane Writers Festival draws a diverse crowd of acclaimed authors, artists and readers. I was asked to develop a hero illustration to represent the festival, visually communicating the magic of getting lost in the written word. This was accompanied by a suite of supporting illustrations, used throughout the festival website, program and precinct.
