Island of Shiprock: Illustrated Storybook

A Hero's Journey 

Creative Consultant – Beth Weeks | Graphic Designer – Jeff Lee

Summary: This project focuses on creating a narrative for a multi-page/multi-surface document that conveys an interaction between two texts; an original fantasy myth as the main focus and The Hero’s Journey by Joseph Campbell to parallel. The book is designed to look ancient, accompanied by ink wash illustrations and rendered in a vertical format to simulate the continuity of a hand scroll.

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell
