A Forest Tale - Mini Exhibition, on now till November
Tom Hubmann is an illustrator who currently resides in Cornwall where he enjoys long walks by the sea, looking for piskies and supping tea. Tom has just finished an MA in Illustration: Authorial Practice, at the University of Falmouth.
During the winter of 2010 / 11, Tom begun work on ‘A Forest Tale’ which documents, celebrates and looks at some of the issues surrounding our relationship with trees.
The project takes the form of a mini exhibition and can best be described as being playful, with serious undertones. It includes screen prints, risograph prints, mono prints, narratives, postcards and even notebooks made entirely out of sheep poo.
Engaging the imagination in a playful manner, Tom’s work explores context, humour, wonderment and simplicity. It journeys through the realms of the unexpected, the absurd and the ‘what if?’.
Combining line drawing, pattern, texture and printmaking, the output can be quite diverse including comics, posters, tshirts and handcrafted books. He enjoys working in different formats allowing him to develop a different style to support the message of each individual project.
For forthcoming projects and recent work, please check out his website and blog.
Thank you for looking and have a lovely day.
