the red dream.

Sophie Bass, Bristol based illustrator. Contact me here for commissions or queries - sophbass@googlemail.com

My work focuses primarily on human nature. I am interested in our place in the universe, sex, death, birth, our sensual relationship with the natural world we inhabit, all things disgusting and exciting, music, masquerade, chaos, dreams and nightmares. My work is influenced by many different cultures and I seek to produce highly decorative work whilst still remaining meaningful.
