Natalie Foss, from Oslo, Norway, has illustrated a fold-out book seen from a fox’s point of view, called The Urban Shadow. The story is told without words, in a series of about 20 panels. In the tale, a fox explores the city and is challenged by its encounters with other animals and with humans. The work appears to be created using pencil and/or pastel on a grey-toned paper. The use of many shades of blue helps set the night-time scene. Foss has done a fantastic job of capturing objects that people see every day in city life – from street lights to garbage cans – from a new perspective.
“I usually find inspiration in people, music, animals, subcultures, feelings, thoughts and a good cup of coffee!” says Natalie, “I love colours, faces and quirky things, and I enjoy experimenting.”
