Whimsical Narrative Illustrations, Cards and Printed Gifts by Ronice Appleby
I am an artist and illustrator conveying fragments of our everyday world through fun and imaginative narratives through analogue illustration. My style aims to construe and blend realistic details with fantastical themes and subjects through a traditionally illustrative aesthetic, that can also communicate to the modern eye. I often draw inspiration from the imaginative and magical world of children’s literature, which I use to depict elements that promote nostalgia. My subjects can often include animals displaying anthropomorphic behaviours and placed in untypical scenarios.
My illustrative body of work consists of my own visual narratives, collection of greetings cards, fine art prints and gifting novelties. I hope to use my illustrations to help my audience resonate with nostalgic images from their childhood, recreated with a more mature, fresh palette.
