How to Write a Poem

A series of illustrations to accompany an in-depth guide on poetry written by T. Cole Rachel.
Client: The Creative Independent

Collage, 2020





For the illustrations, I explored the idea of visual poetry by creating 4 images based on the writing prompts shared within the guide. The prompts of “Landscape”, “Moment”, & “Response” shaped the 3 spot illustrations within the article, and elements from each were taken to create the header illustration, see above.




Landscape


“Without poetry, we lose our way.”
