It’s Not Rocket Science
‘It’s Not Rocket Science’: Care for Contemporary Creatives examines care in relation to creative careers: How can we care for ourselves as contemporary creative professionals?
Embracing a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to explore the theme of ‘care’, this semi-autobiographical series of work draws upon Wilde’s personal experiences as well as the thoughts of other practising illustrators. Humorous, character-driven, typographic illustrations create a bold and colourful backdrop for contemporary concerns surrounding the pursuit of a creative career and are intended to create a sense of community in what is usually a solitary career path.
Wilde has strived to infuse ‘care’ into every aspect of the project: care for the planet, care for the self, and care for others. Consequently, risograph printing was used as much as possible, hands were rested, and the workload was diversified.
