June was a really exciting month for me and my illustrations. Firstly, I had my illustration chosen to be used as the front cover for the wonderful Severine Literary Journal Issue 4 with the theme of 'Heroes'. It was the first time the journal was to be offered as a printed edition aswell as digital so it was lovely to be able to hold the finished product in my hand and see lots of other people sharing photos of receiving their own copies on twitter and instagram. Under the theme of Heroes I decided to create an illustration inspired by and for the people who are committed to protecting our oceans; preserving our forests; nurturing our lands; cleaning our air and saving our endangered species.
Secondly, I was thrilled to work closely on a really lovely project with my dad, Steve Thorp by illustrating the 3rd issue of Unpsychology Magazine - the Childhood edition. This was a really exciting project which included creating cover artwork for the print and special digital Childhood Poetry Supplement, a full colour central spread, and a collection of black and white illustrations responding to specific written pieces and quotes within the magazine. We also had a really enjoyable launch of the magazine at the wonderful Magalleria in Bath. Unpsychology magazine responds to themes of psychology, soul-making, ecology and 'wild mind'. Edited and put together by Steve Thorp, Issue 3 - the Childhood edition is full of poetry, essays and fiction from wonderful writers including Jay Griffiths , Toby Chown, Paul Feldwick, Bethany Rivers, Kate Pawsey, Tanya Shadwick, Jim Carter and Rachel McGladdery, Julia Macintosh, Penny Hay and Dave Hicks'. If you are interested in reading this issue or previous issues you can visit the Unpsychology website.
