About me
I'm Julie, and I recently graduated with a first class honours BA in Illustration from Arts University Bournemouth.

I intend to print all components in two-colour riso print, which will provide a texture and vividness that ordinary printing can't.

The second, "How to Destroy a Country", is an opinion piece about the role the EU played in the economic downfall of Greece. The third
