Jody Woodhouse BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation 2020
Throughout my degree, much of my practice has focussed on exploring narratives and visual storytelling. I particularly enjoy creating work for younger audiences and engaging them with concepts and themes through light-hearted narratives which require deeper thought.
Anthropomorphising characters within stories has allowed me to delicately touch on themes such as inclusivity and family alongside those with a more educational focus, reflected in my most recent children’s book ‘The Entomologist’.
While working mostly digitally, I have also expanded my practice to explore alternative avenues which engage younger audiences such as animation, where I’m able to explore characterisation in more detail.
Most recently, I have been producing digital content for Manchester Museums current exhibition which aims to encourage children to fall in love with insects. I thoroughly enjoy creating educational material, solving new visual communication problems and believe one of my strengths is my adaptability when aiming to expand my role as an illustrator.
