The brief was set as a group project; we were to choose five poems from Hilaire Belloc's book 'Cautionary Tales for Children' (1907) and design them with an adult audience in mind. I took the role as art director, and we all decided to lean into our illustrative strengths to create a grand guignol theatre aesthetic. 

Additionally, we aimed to create shadow pop-up stages for each of the poems.
