Swans show up in my visual journal, possibly because of all the English and Irish fairytales my parents read to me as a girl. Most stories deal with a human to swan transformations. I’m interested in wild animals making their way back to their homes, and reacquainting themselves with a domestic life. I imagine it would be like purgatory, and a bit unsettling to witness animals as sentient as humans.
I’ve thumbnailed these daydreams, and I’m in the process of developing some as illustrations.
