2nd Star

Role:

Author, Illustrator, Designer

In 2010 I set myself a challenge, to transcribe abstract and distorted images and text into a book. This collection of fragments is the result of frantic documentation of a sequential dream over the space of 2years.

Looking and reviewing the information, I have correlated a distorted creative combustion of broken written words and images brimmed with personal energy.

 

Objects inspired from this book can be seen on my blog: www.markmcleish.blogspot.com

Peering in              forming
