What is your Paradise?
For this project I created an event of facebook where I asked people to send me their descriptions of a perfect Paradise or dreamworld they would like to live in. I believe that everybody, whether or not religious, has some sort of place they (maybe even secretly) would like end up in. I got a lot of feedback and the responses varied from really crazy to extremely boring. From the 60 descriptions I got, I chose the ones which I thought would be the most fun to illustrate. I mainly picked my favorite parts from the descriptions and made them my own. The whole thing ended up being something between the Paradise of the person and my own fantasy. All the people I worked with were complete strangers to me and I drew their portraits purely based on their photos from facebook. I also tried to get a feel of who each particular person is, what are they into and incorporate that somehow into the pieces. Enjoy!
I also made promotional booklets and stickers to give out to curators and art directors. Here is the cover image:
