"For British illustrator and print designer Abbey Watkins, drawing has always been the primary form of expression. Her work is grounded in realism created in graphite, but pulls on the strings of surrealism with it’s mix of human, animal and spiritual worlds. From her studies in Textile Design for Fashion, where she achieved first class honours in 2011, Abbey developed her work from functional illustrations to a more uncertain and personal place, often drawing on mythology and archetypal themes. The fight between the conscious and the subconscious is boiling beneath the surface of her most recent work. Where her print designs are concerned, a language between the pencil and the digital world has been developed to create both simple and elaborate pieces.”

Confuse the Spirit

image

"The illustrations were inspired by the myths and legends of  Native American culture; confusing the bad spirits by not being able to pin point the body to infiltrate the mind. I was also inspired by their use of peyote and transcendent spiritual visions. "
