Visual Contributions to the Silent Victims

Experimentation for Illustory of The Silent Victims.

Here are some attempts to discern the aesthetic I’m applying to The Silent Victims where I’m using a combination of watercolour, acrylic on wood, and multiliner pens. So we have a cherry blossom tree, Hanoko/Tonki the Elephant performing tricks, a heart (I was thinking of the black leopard that was stabbed…but I don’t know if that’s what an animal heart would look like…just a test!), a poisoned potato (what the keepers fed to some of the animals) and on the wood panel is a mark making illustration where each ‘print’ represents the 200 zoo animals destroyed at Ueno Zoo during World War II enforced by the Japanese Wartime Zoo Policy. Next week once I have the brief for this project together, I’ll get further in depth as to why this happened to these animals and give you a bit more history.
