Book of Worlds is an artistic representation of mental illness. Each chapter contains art which conveys an imagined world inspired from symptoms of specific mental illnesses. Sketches, paint studies, and final compositions illustrate key world locations and inhabitants. The goal of this Major Qualifying Project (MQP) was to create captivating and imaginative works of art befitting a professional concept artist’s portfolio and ready for publishing as a stand alone art book. This MQP was completed at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) by one Interactive Media and Game Development IMGD (BA) major. In this report, I discuss research which inspired Book of Worlds’ artwork and describe the imagined mental illness worlds along with my artistic process. This report includes concept art inspired by symptoms from eating disorders, bipolar spectrum disorders, and trauma-related disorders.
