This series of 15 mixed-media illustrations questions the lack of gender and race representation within the British literary establishment. I am proposing a revisualisation of the key scenes in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials (The Northern Lights, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass) with an emphasis on the visibility of female characters and characters of colour. The intention has been to open a dialogue on the importance of diversity in contemporary visual storytelling.
