This illustration series was an outcome of my final year research project centred around the interactions and relationships between the built environment and it's inhabitants. It follows a line of inquiry into the term Topophobia meaning "fear of place".
I wanted to learn what a walk through Dublin City might be like for those with worries one might not consider when walking through themselves. I took sentiments from Dublin city residents in response to this theme, and found the responses could be categorised into four titles "The People", "The Crime", "The Monotony" and "The Roads". I took these four themes and created a series of urban surrealist illustrations.
