Aideen Canning MA Sequential Illustration.

My project was originally inspired by ancient history, which I developed through drawing artefacts at the British Museum. I researched the civilisations of Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt and became interested in the myths ' Ishtar's Descent to the Underworld' and the Ancient Egyptian Creation Myth of Heliopolis. Drawing has been my primary means of expression, and my experiments have evolved to illustrate the 'Book of the First Time' and 'The Explanation for Day and Night'.
