ABOUT SADIE

Be careful what you wish for – the 27 Club, a collection of musical artists; all of whom lived to the age of 27 became a fascination/focal point for the theme of ‘Desire’. I experimented with zine, poster, and vinyl format as I felt this best represented the culture. Creating a vinyl cover enabled me to tell their story in the best way, allowing me to paint a clear picture to the audience. I felt it was just as important to display the tragedy of what went on behind the scenes leading to their death. I was able to express this with illustrations on the cover of the vinyl’s, by capturing significant moments throughout their life, as a celebration of their contributions.
