Sofia Picciuto: “Old King Cole”
Sofia Picciuto, Illustration student at Middlesex University, was inspired by a nursery rhyme
Sofia Picciuto, BA Illustration at Middlesex University
Sofia looked at two designs by Winifred Mold of the Silver Studio, but explored the stories that can be creatively imagined from these images. She compared the Old King Cole illustration with a design depicting medieval hunters. She associated the latter design with her own love of 1980s video games, recognising stylistic similarities.
