The Broadsheet is an annual poetry publication of the Kilkenny Arts Office. I took over the design in 2008 and this is the 2020 edition.
I always try to bring it to live capturing visually some of the common threads in the poems, playing with visual metaphors in the same way the published poets do.
I normally work digitally, but for this year's broadsheet, I decided to paint the illustrations. The mood of the poems strongly suggested it.
