Powerful Stories

Out today on the Wellcome Collection’s Stories platform, a powerful piece by Meg Fozzard on cardiac arrest in young people with an equally powerful set of illustrations by the very talented Cat O’Neil: https://lnkd.in/eDApQDm5
Cat has a wonderful way of conveying the hugely personal and difficult stories of our lives with delicacy and clarity.

Another powerful image by Owen Freeman

The drama in Owen Freeman’s illustration work is unmistakable and utilises all the best techniques of cinematography such as powerful lighting, unusual camera angles and reduced pallet to engage and describe emotion. This piece for AARP is no exception. Working across editorial, design, publishing and advertising fields, his work is as varied as it is commanding.

Cat O’Neil for the Wellcome Collection

Cat O’Neil has an extraordinary ability to illustrate complex or difficult ideas without losing the warmth and charm needed to engage. This recent image formed part of a series for the Wellcome Collection for their web-based ‘stories’ platform.  The brief was to create images based on writings by researcher and environmentalist, Nataly Allasi Canaleson. These powerful, multifarious texts needed an intellectual approach and careful image research. As ever, Cat was more than up to the challenge with these gorgeous cut-outs.

The Night Walker

This week’s cover illustration for The New Yorker by the hugely talented Mark Ulriksen depicts all the emotions that a night walk around New York evokes.  Feelings of wonder and excitement in finding oneself amongst powerful architecture in the still of the night brings peace and exhilaration in equal measure and feeds part of our soul that daytime never reaches.  In this fascinating insight, Mark discusses his passion for a late-night stroll with his wife, Leslie.
