Hand-Rendered & Digital Illustration

In response to an image-making brief, I developed these digital/analogue illustrations for Virginia Woolf's short story A Haunted House. The process involved hand-drawn base images set digitally atop photo or hand-rendered backgrounds and then manipulated to create mood, shadow, reflection, and detail. The images re-imagine Woolf's 19th Century English countryside into a contemporary beachside suburban surf town; I used a mix of visual references including public house rental images online, Google streetview, my own photography, and my current house interiors.   

'A Haunted House', Virginia Woolf

"...Out in the garden then? But the trees spun darkness for a wandering beam of sun... The wind roars up the avenue. Trees stoop and bend this way and that. Moonbeams splash and spill wildly in the rain. But the beam of the lamp falls straight from the window..."
