12 Days of Illustrated Christmas News

A small pop up book illustrating 12 news stories from over the christmas period.


For our Christmas project we had to illustrate 12 news stories from over the holiday period. I started by gathering news stories that interested me and that I thought I would be able to illustrate. I then made the decision to work with pop-ups rather than just drawings as I found this method of working more engaging and less repetitive as just trying to draw out the news stories.

I chose a variety of stories from fake news to a story about a sheet of ice thats going to break off Antartica.

I then put all my pop-ups together to form a small book. I think they all worked really well together and that the mixture of humour and simple designs made each piece stand out.
