The Friends Before Time
Updated: Jan 4, 2020
This illustration started as a project about Kew Garden during my Designing Research course at Kingston University. When I started this project, I tried to find a relationship between what I’m interested in and with plants. When arriving in the Kew archive, I found plants such as cycads and wollemi pine, which have a long history. These ancient species must have existed alongside extinct animals such as dinosaurs.
This illustration is about harmony between people and nature. The children try to get close to the dinosaurs carefully and cautiously. They coexist with the dinosaurs without harming nature in this illustration.
