once I had decided to focus my project on an illustrated book of Manx myths i began to accumulate a collection of both primary research and secondary. the primary consisted of illustration, line drawings of places and areas with connection to each of the poems.
in doing this i believe i have improved on the compositional elements of the illustrations. making each more readable and understandable from the audience perspective.
without the research the illustrations would not have strong enough links to the actual areas, location and places that give some of the pieces their impact.
