The article presents the development of the crossover picturebook, A Long Way, an illustration project dwelling on the theme of children’s migration through depicting children in intermediary places such as roads and migration routes. Based on illustration, the work is an artistic contemplation of current issues related to migration in the Middle East and Europe, contextualized in connection with Anatolia’s transitionary status in different eras. This article explores how illustration has been practised as a visual enquiry into contemporary and social issues by its student illustrator, supported by her instructor.

More about this publication?
  • Illustration is a rapidly evolving field with an excitingly broad scope. Despite its cultural significance and rich history, illustration has rarely been subject to deep academic scrutiny. The Journal of Illustration provides an international forum for scholarly research and investigation of a range of cultural, political, philosophical, historical, and contemporary issues, in relation to illustration. The journal encourages new critical writing on illustration, associated visual communication, and the role of the illustrator as visualizer, thinker, and facilitator, within a wide variety of disciplines and professional contexts.
