To create the artwork to fill its first publication, Manchester-based illustration collective Foursight (comprising the talents of Dominique Byron, Jordan O’Brien, Matt Bray and Kris Sale) paired up 20 illustrators and asked each duo to do battle…

Foursight then selected ten pairs of “binary opposite words” such as war and peace, analogue and digital, and big and small, and gave each duo of artists one of the word pairings to interpret.

The resulting artworks appear in the publication, entitled VS, in the form of ten double sided tear-out prints – the idea being that the viewer becomes a referee in the each of the ten included ‘battles’, ultimately deciding which side of each print to tear out and display.

And so we find Foursight’s Dominique Byron illustrative interpretation on War on one the first page…

And Jordan O’Brien‘s Brain illustration…
