As part of my final outcome it was important to consider the sticker side of the project. I didn’t want them to look like an after thought that I hadn’t really considered as this would have made a disappointing impact. I decided on four categories of Food, Plant Life, Charms and People this I thought would cover all bases of symbols and give the story some intrigue and structure. I really enjoyed drawing the people for this project as it gave the book a strong drawing style throughout which I find quite difficult to achieve normally.
I chose all the symbols by combing through Sussex folktales and finding which symbols repeated themselves. I toyed with the idea of adding descriptions and special mentions to what the symbols are about but some have much better stories than others and I wanted to let the viewer decide for themselves.
