A few days ago the London-based illustrator and textile designer Ciara Phelan launched a new website. If you’re not that familiar with Ciara’s work then you’re probably in for a treat. Her collage-based illustrations typically buzz with energy and through her client work and personal projects she has carved out a distinctive style which feels fluid and natural despite the often rigid nature of her medium.
One piece in particular which stands out for me is an ongoing personal project which mixes fashion illustration with Ciara’s love of Greek mythology. Combining collage with textures and vector shapes she has created three stunning images from Greek myth: Demeter, the goddess of the harvest; Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation; and Persephone, the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. I think they’re beautiful images.
It’s such a great series that I would love to see it continue. For now though, why not check out more work from Ciara on her website here. Enjoy!
