In this poster series, Fig. 3, Carly Wall focuses on the structures of animals. In these works, the start of what is to be a longer series, Wall uses elements of illustration inspired from 1950’s anatomy books. As she states,
"I recently became somewhat fascinated by animal anatomy. While visiting my grandparents I found a vintage 1950’s illustrated animal anatomy book, and that’s where it started. Fig 3. was inspired by an illustration series featured in the book, which I recreated digitally using a tablet. With inspiration from the book, I’m hoping to create a series of posters.”
Wall’s design work communicates through a combination of illustration and text. In another one of her works, Design, blocks create a staircase up to the piece’s title. As with most of her pieces, Fig. 3 is a quirky image that is both art and graphic design. To see more you can visit her Society 6 page here, or her professional website here.
