Putting Daisy Down by Jay McInerney

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Illustration / Magazine & Newspaper Design / 2008

We had two particularly strong stories in our fiction issue and we needed dramatic images that would set the mood. Jay McIrnerney’s ‘Putting Daisy Down’ is a dark tale about the psychological battle between a married couple, focused on their doomed cat. Swava Harasymowicz conveys a sense of impending domestic horror with style, colours and the aura of menace. The large colour illustrations make a fabulous contrast with the pages of dense text that follow, with simple, understated graphic elements.
