or how to illustrate a poem, tapping into the hidden message.
- This project is an illustration to a poem titled 'Wasp' by an Irish poet, Noel Duffy. The brief provided a choice of five different poems, leaving the designer with the decision of what appeals to them the most. I took the liberty of analysing the meaning of the poem and introducing imagery consistent with my interpretation.
