Hiroshima Tree

My latest brief was to illustrate protest poems against the storage of nuclear warheads at Faslane naval base in Scotland. The brief was to create an image in black and white that would fit on an A5 page. I created this image after reading a poetry book called 'Red, Cherry Red' by Jackie Kay. The illustrations in that book really appealed to me (unfortunately I have forgotten the illustrator but I'll look him up).

I originally created another image for this poem (see below) which was fun to make but didn't really fit the style of the poem.
