I was recently commissioned by the British Museum to create an exclusive range of illustrated souvenirs. The design is intended to highlight the British Museum’s famous facade along with a few of their most famous objects.
Exhibits such as the Rosetta Stone, Blue-glazed shabti of the Pharaoh Seti, Gayer-Anderson Cat and stone lion sit alongside some of London’s iconic buildings and well-known attractions. The lotus flower was chosen to frame the illustration due to it’s powerful association with various ancient cultures.
‘Josie’s illustrations are detailed and fascinating and she has unique hand-writing. When approaching the brief for the British Museum she cleverly worked with the building and objects, fitting them into a cohesive design which is inventive and commercial. Her communication is very professional and clear and it has been a pleasure to work with Josie.’
