The Tyger

These Times – How We Maintained Focus 2020
Alice says……
I have always had a love for tigers
My dad always used to read me ‘The Tiger that came to tea’ when i was tiny. I fell in love with the story and illustrations, and thought maybe one day a tiger would visit me for tea!
My project- ‘The Tyger’ features inspiration from the William Blake poem called ‘The Tyger’ as well as Kew Gardens & London Zoo.
 I enjoy reading the Poem ,’Tyger’ by Blake, in particular, due to the narrative it leads throughout and its constant rhyming couplets.
Inspired by my love for storytelling, animals and nature, I decided to develop this idea by creating a children’s wear collection based on Tigers, Giraffes, Hippos and Monkeys which may also be used for a visual merchandising display.
Creating characters is something new to me and I have been loving it! it is so exciting seeing these animals come to life in my prints and large scale paintings. I love working with texture/block colour and seeing the two compliment each other!
I think it is important with what is happening in the world right now, to stay positive & remember that animals belong in this world just as much as we do.
