Ada in the making / by Fiona Robinson

With the art for Ada’s Ideas I wanted to try something new - 3 dimensional images, which I hoped would capture a little of the Victorian era, and the drama and theatricality of Ada’s life.
This involved drawing out the images, then painting them with my favorite Japanese watercolors.

Once cut, I layered all the images for each spread to different heights using my son’s Lego bricks and glued them in place.

Then each spread was photographed.
