The TrenchesPosted: November 3, 2013
Here is my final images of The Trenches project based on Wilfred Owen’s poem Dulce et Decorum Est (1).
I wanted to set the book from a second person point of view. Here I have illustrated a mother reading her soldier son’s letters sent from the war. Her mind remembering the time when he went to war.
This image is to depict the gas attack inside the trenches. Here the soldiers had to hold urine-soaked cloth over their faces in an emergency of mustard gas. Thousands died of horrific deaths.
Here, I wanted to create senses of lost and loneliness because his friend had died.
