The illustration tackles my experience of moving from Dublin to London and the feelings it brought up. Even though I really love living in London, I get pangs for Dublin city at random, unexpected times. I know with the price of rent and the lack of financial stability, moving back to Dublin is not what I should do. I’m happy where I am, it’s just unfortunate that it feels like that option has been taken away from me.
I am an Irish Illustrator and designer currently living in London. I love experimenting with texture and colour to create interesting and meaningful work. When I’m not drawing you can usually find me outdoors looking for animals to pet. You can see more of my work at www.louisedukes.com or @louise_dukes_ on Instagram.
