Megan Mila Pilcher-King

I'm an illustrator, designer, papercraft artist and photographer currently interning with the design company Acrylicize. I have undertaken many collaborative projects throughout my degree, for example the Creative Conscience Gold Award-winning project, ‘Sleeping Rough’, a series of public art pieces which confronted the people of Bristol with facts about homelessness in the UK.

I recently had an editorial published in the Bristol Cable's local election special which has left me keen to do more. My intuitive nature provides me with a strong sense of audience and much of my work seeks to provoke audience engagement or response. My approach to

research has equipped me with a deep understanding of subjects, allowing me to stretch away from the obvious and communicate concepts clearly.

Hair Goes Nothing

Hair Goes Nothing

Select pages from the instructional booklet which went inside the pack, guiding people to make their own 'headpieces'. The hope is that this project will break down taboos around cancer, and in turn make those diagnosed feel less isolated.

Sleeping Rough

A collaborative project with Isabella Daly. We observed discarded mattresses on the streets of Bristol and made a correlation between them and people facing homelessness. Both were once safe in the comfort of a home and now equally cast out.
