Frankie Thorp: Illustration

The best thing about Frankie's illustrations is that occasionally, only some of the most seemingly irrelevant features are highlighted, are given colour and made to stand out from the rest of the piece. It allows us to be not only impressed by the simple yet accurate depiction of boldly form and dimensions, but also encourages us to think about identity and how we'd go about describing a character… The woman with the bright red lips, the woman with glasses hanging as a necklace, the woman wearing a yellow shirt, the woman with red stripes on her socks.
