I recently lost my best friend to sudden adult death syndrome. Dealing with the heart-breaking grief, I decided to put all my energy into illustrations and drawings inspired by my friend Iona. This summer I’ve learnt to acknowledge the beauty of life, I decided to look at life as if it was through her eyes, and despite the heartache I decided to explore the country, walk and take in the surroundings, nature and beauty of this world, whilst I can. I decided to create a tribute festival inspired by her nature walks, bringing back her favourite artists, creating stages from her Spotify playlists, representing her style, her doodles and her favourite colours.
I admire set designs for concerts, gigs, festivals. Using design, animation, illustration, branding, colours, lighting and combining these to create a beautiful and successful set design. I wanted to bring the festival to life.
