Kaleidoscope: the art of illustrative storytelling

Kaleidoscope: the art of illustrative storytelling

Similar to kaleidoscopes, a good story also employs reflection on the different elements to create a narrative or pattern that is captivating to the reader. The pressure is that much greater when the storyteller is a graphic artist and has a page or less to tell the tale with few to no words. The result relies heavily on the artist's ability to turn the lens just right and capture the essentials of setting characterisation, mood, detail, motion and more to convey the intended meaning. The artists here use traditional illustration techniques along with embroidery, paper cutting, carving and collage to create pieces that standout for their low-tech charm
