Illustration, Drawing, Illustrated Type
This is the first time I did illustration work for Raspa. I have worked on branding and design for Raspa since issue 1 with a variety of contibuting artists. We had just changed printers and, where past issues used to have full color interior pages, we tried making a magazine with only black and white interior pages. This printing was also challenging in it's limited range of grays, used mostly for text. I decided to work in black ink with pen nib and staff for this reason. Each illustration, with exception of the floral illustrations, were inspired by lines of the poetry within the issue. Each work is an attempt to express specific texts that struck me visually.
