DEIRDRE OF THE SORROWS

ILLUSTRATION. EDITORIAL LAYOUT DESIGN. 

 

Deirdre of the Sorrows is an Irish folklore, which tells the love of a beautiful woman named Deirdre and Naoise. This project looked to create a chapter page spread and illustration for a book on ancient folklore. For my final design I chose to capture a moment at the end of the story where two trees from the lover’s graves are entwined together, set within a dark atmosphere to represent the sorrow behind the story.
