Norwegian Wood

The six-panel illustration is based on Norwegian Wood, a novel by Haruki Murakami which expresses a tragic story of nostalgia and loss. The illustrations explore the theme of the presentation of reality as a reflection of the deterioration of the mind, as the characters progressively suffer from mental illness. It reflects upon the idea that when one gazes into the landscape, they also gaze into oneself. 

I explored how to integrate illustration on different design platforms  such as packaging and publications.
