Souvenir series

This is a series of drawings based on images of souvenirs collected from friends, strangers, and my own travels. The images are produced using a combination of pen and pastel, and measure 60x40cm framed.

The series was produced as part of a larger study for a souvenir project called ‘Souvenirs from the British Isles’ – a set of hypothetical objects created to represent cities around the country. These studies explore the typical shapes and motifs incorporated into souvenir objects, as well as documenting a history of collectible objects through art.
