Sarah Tanat Jones illustrates for the Scottish Opera

The Scottish Opera were recently in touch with a problem they had come up against, a lovely new production of Carmen that needed beautiful promotional material but no artist to provide them with it.

Luckily our Sarah Tanat Jones was able to save the day and give them a series of informative and impactful images that tell the tale of Don José, a naive solder who is seduced by the fiery Gypsy, Carmen. Sarah’s illustrations were projected onto the sides of buildings and in public spaces throughout Scotland.

Targeted at the slightly older child who loves to bodyboard, the free pack is full of top tips for parents, a wave guide for children and animated stickers they can attach to bodyboards and beach bags. Duncan created the cool characters and all the art for the different goodies in the pack. The animation was also designed by Duncan; he then directed two 2D animators from Sun & Moon Studios in Bristol with Proximity providing the music and VFX. Watch the video here.

Here's what she says about the work:
"In this series beauty and fragility are enhanced. Hand stitching takes the place of drawing, abstracting the subject, breaking down the features to a more vulnerable state. The thread 'melting' into the fabric representing delicate 'skin'."
 
You can see her portrait "Fragility #2" exhibit along with other entries for the prize at Piano Nobile Kings Place,London until the October 9th
