'An Alarming Journey'
Jackie Batey (UK), Linda Knight (Aus)

Practice-based research can be highly speculative as often it’s embarked upon with no clear end in sight, the act of research in itself can reveal new directions and discoveries (something that is important to artists/illustrators) but this process can also reveal anxieties that seem to be inherent in practice-based research. (see. Candlin, F. (2000) A proper anxiety? Practice-based PhDs and academic unease.)

The authors, who hold PhDs in illustration practices, trouble the notion of the ‘method’ of practice- based research by ‘co-illustrating’ our working methodologies . As two artists that have completed a PhD by practice, we visually describe our processes to explore methodological similarities and wild differences. We contribute an ‘artistic interlude’ comprising archived
materials from our PhDs to show our working process from the identifying of a research question through to resolution in terms of artefact
