Abstract [en]

Illustrating the same story in three different ways explores illustration processes and demonstrates the impact of illustration on the interpretation of the story. Enhancing the transparency of creative processes places an illustrator into the highlighted position as the producer of visual content and ideas. 

The story of The Redheaded Man, written by Russian absurdist Daniil Kharms in 1937, functions as a framework for this conceptual illustration research. Although the anti-narrative features of the story almost reject illustration, its polysemous nature opens a path for the variety of approaches in visualization of the text.

In the attached report I introduce three different approached and illustrated responses to the story of The Redheaded Man realized during the MA degree work project, as well as the reflections and categorization of the content and ideas behind each illustration project.

The outcome of the project addresses the questions of creative processes and illustrator’s visual decisions on both personal and meta-level, addressing the need of developing the theoretical content for the field of illustration.
