Overview: This was a collaborative project with the English department and various art students. The task was to create illustrations based on poetry written by women. This series was based on the poem Conversations with Persephone by Nikita Gill.
Challenges: All illustrations must depict Persephone's journey into the underworld.
Solution: Opt to have Persephone heavily contrast the dark backgrounds to represent her entering the underworld. In the second illustration, her skull appearing through her face represents her becoming queen of the underworld. The last illustration is her meeting with Cerberus, the watchdog of the underworld.
