Journey to the Sea was a film series created by Nina Constable and Mindfully Wired Communications to celebrate Devon’s diverse habitats. This collection of short films sought to inspire viewers to help protect the UK’s water ways- wherever they live!

I was commissioned to create watercolour spot illustrations as well as an illustrated map that were featured in the film’s introductions, voiced by Springwatch’s Gillian Burke. The illustrations were also used in the accompanying promotional literature for the premier in the form of ‘pledge cards’.

For each film I chose a motif species as featured in the short, which I brought to life in my splashy watercolour style.

The series was a collaboration between WWF, Sky Ocean Rescue, North Devon UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, National Trust and the Environment Agency
