Imperial Mud:

The Fight for the Fens 

Imperial Mud describes the destruction of British Wetlands and the Ideginous peoples battle to preserve their homes against the imperalist might of the British Empire. 





For the cover I created a model scene of a wetlands section, made using painted foamboard and other scrap materials, as well as real plants
to create minature tree’s. Additionally, I painted a slide of Acrylic which I then lit from behind to create a sunset sky. For the final cover I
inverted the colours of the model to create a more gloomy, depressing look to reflect the destruction of the habitats which this book describes.
