It’s not especially often that creatives flock to Cornwall en masse, but the little nook of England has been awash with activity this weekend due to Port Eliot festival, featuring musicians, artists, fashion designers and journalists. It also saw the launch of The Girl Who Fell to Earth, a story written by Luella Bartley and illustrated by Zoë Taylor, a graphic artist we make no secret of our love for.
Since we last featured Zoë last summer she’s been busily putting together drawings she made as part of a collaborative illustration and writing workshop at the same festival in 2012, taking quotations from various speakers including Barbara Hulanicki, Beth Orton and Stephen Jones to weave into the narrative. It’s a beauty of a publication, with Zoë’s strong film noir-tinged aesthetic underpinning the whimsical nature of Luella’s story as though two were made for each other.
