Kurt Cobain Biography

The Brief: Create an illustrated biography which is appropriate for the select person through its content but also its format, materials and techniques to communicate the story effectively. The Solution: My chosen muse was Kurt Cobain as I wanted to communicate his personal struggle throughout his whole life. As he dealt with family issues, early drug abuse and a suicide attempt even at a young age. I did by creating handmade dark and gritty pages made of mixed media collages with text and imagery hidden within the chaotic mess. These went on to form the book itself so the outcome was this tangible object which you have pull apart and examine to understand Cobain’s mind-set.
