Summer Crane ____ Designer
My name is Summer Crane and I’m a visual artist from the south of England who recently moved up to Leeds to study Visual Communication. As well as its art scene, I am enamoured with the Leeds music scene and a lot of my collage work is heavily inspired by this as well as the visual style of old school punk gig posters. I mostly create my hand drawn illustrative pieces under the pseudonym ‘marestrum’, which often reflect my own experiences with mental health and aim to explore uncomfortable themes such as ugliness and loneliness within ones self. I am also one third of DRAB, a small online publication (and soon-to-be zine!) focusing on the grimier side of music, art and culture within Leeds and beyond. I have experience with meeting briefs for Leeds bands and labels, and hope to become as immersed in the Leeds music and arts scene as much as I possibly can!
