          The Distance of the Moon - World Illustration Awards Shortlisted Entry - Alternative Publishing

          Association of Illustrators (AOI)

          • ‘The Distance of the Moon’ is a wonderfully surreal short story by Italo Calvino, based around the idea that the moon used to be very close to the earth, and people would jump between them, collecting 'moon milk'. I illustrated this story as a four page silent comic, printed as A3 risographs with flat gold ink on Imperial Blue Colourplan paper from G.F. Smith. The project has been shortlisted in the Alternative Publishing category in the 2020 World Illustration Awards. The entry can be seen here:
