Little White Lies (D&AD 2012 Brief)
Little White Lies (Black Swan)
D&AD Brief 2012
This was a design for the illustration brief for D&AD 2012. You had to illustrate a cover for Little White Lies Magazine and had a choice of film titles. I opted for the Black Swan.

Black Swan is the story of ballerina, Nina’s descent into psychosis. Obsessed with perfection, her desire to secure the lead role in Swan Lake starts to negatively affect her life. She starts having delusions as the darkness of the character of the Black Swan takes over.

The design is very simple, created by dry-brushing acrylics onto canvas. The story is very powerful and Natalie Portman’s portrayal of Nina is both powerful and distressing. The idea was to show how the black swan is taking over in her mind. The redness from the eyes of the swan reflected in her own irises. The Black Swan emerges from Nina’s head and becomes part of her so the two are indistinguishable.
The cover image for Black Swan Issues, created using hand drawn sketch, acrylics and dry-brushing.
