After reading a few more stories online about domestic pet abuse i have decided on a possible idea for my exhibition piece. I am thinking of combining care instructions that you get with certain items…for example, ‘microwave safe’ or ‘suffocation risk’. By using the stories i have found i’m breaking them down into their simplest form, literally just combining the pet and how they were abused. I think these would look effective as a series of posters or postcards. I am currently working on the illustrations of the animals by hand and then thinking of using illustrator, and the skills i developed in visual literacy, to improve them further and add text.
