See the work of Illustrator in Residence, Christy Burdock

Christy, a recent graduate of the Royal College of Art, describes her drawings as reflecting ‘the narrative of the everyday’. She works by immersing herself in micro-societies, observing individuals and the relationships between them, and then layering this observation with metaphor and imagination to create new worlds.

Over a period of six months, beginning on 1 September 2017, Christy has documented and then recreated the world within House of Illustration, capturing its artists, staff and visitors.

The resulting artworks are on show at House of Illustration from March 30th 2018. Find out more and book here.
