Jessica Jolliffe is a Level 5 BA (Hons) Illustration student at the Arts University Bournemouth. Jessica presents a series of illustrations entitled ‘Reportage’ that were inspired by her love of exploring the outside world.
Talking about her work, Jessica said:
The starting point for these was a trip to Paris, where I began drawing from observation and experimenting with diverse materials whilst on location. I started to draw on location almost constantly, my sketchbooks becoming visual diaries.
After the Paris trip I decided to draw in places that were more personal to me, such as my home town the Isle of Wight, Bournemouth and London in order to develop my reportage drawings further.
I later developed these drawings into collages, experimenting with colour and texture.
