Telephone Line was created during my Art Foundation as one of my three ‘pathway’ experimentations. I knew that I wanted to create a narrative, and one that could be told without using text.
It sounds very ‘Romantic Poet’ of me, but the idea came when I was on a walk, watching crows cawing in the trees. The idea of a slow-moving narrative taking place over an entire day seemed like the best plan, and I began researching illustrative styles that would suit it. If you haven’t guessed already, Nobrow Press was the inspiration for the style of the narrative, from a mix of their house artists.
