Fuzzy little things...

This first week back at uni has been really fantastic. I've been currently working on a starter brief, "Firsts". Basically, we have to create a small poster of something that was first made in the UK, inspires people and instills national pride. As you can imagine, it was rather hard work. I contemplated the telephone, trains...scones!but have decided to work on the television. It was made be John Logie Baird in the 1920's. The images were made using 30 lines and were in black and white though he did create colour television too.

This is my sort-of finished piece though i'm really not happy with it so shall work on it some more when I get the time.

I've also been working on my Personal Project. My project is going to be an animation for the RSPCA competition. I'm going to use my dog, Florence as my inspiration as she has sad eyes...which I thought would be useful for this project. Plus she's so cute!

What fell through the cracks...

As of late i've been quite busy with summer projects and just life in general. I thought it best to upload my LEP illustrations which i'd forgotten to upload. So here they are...

This image was not used, unfortunatley. Due to some it wasn't actually a reader's story. Nevermind though, as I enjoyed drawing it. The image title is "Taste" basically talking about the sophistication of food and wine.

The story that I illustrated this for was called, "Undercover Gran". My lovely boyfriend helped to come up with the Bond-eque style.

A christmas story. Quite a sad story talking about how thinking about people at christmas time. The people around you are more important than shopping.

"Bar One" you see a mysterious man in a pub.

This illustration was for a story called, "Accidentally on Purpose". In this image you can see two children looking on into the kitchen to see the chair next to the cooker, where previously their mother had tried to kill herself using gas.

" Another train of thought".

" Extract from the Compostela Key".

A little bit of me...

I have mentioned my summer projects quite a few times and thought that since it's all done and dusted...(well...except for a few bits that need finishing)I can upload a few of my favourite here they are...

My front cover.

Me with fox ears and my favourite colour.

Errol's feet and one of his feathers.

Gary Numan and Lady Gaga. Just a small bit of music I like.

My beautiful birthday present!

An old friend...

My lovely mummy.


Favourite shoes.

The first day of the Last year.

Yesterday was my first day back at uni. We've been moved back into the room we had in first year. We're to be in pretty much every day! So much more work to's scary!

This is my wonderful board is soon to be covered in inpirational images!

Once we were given an introduction into our third year we set up our exhibition, " Me, Me, Me" and then we had a wander round the room and here is just smidgen of the talent...

This is Leigh B looking through my Me Me Me book.

This is my best friend Rachel setting up her work.

This is Tom...

...this is his board with his work on. I love his use of colour!

This is Hannah's awesome mirror with her hair and smile drawn on. So cool.

I thought this was souch a sweet idea. This pretty box of personal information was created by Imogen.

I thought this was such a clever way to portray yourself. Helen is really in to fashion/stitching. Clever lass.

It was a very tiring and rather shocking day but i'm so excited to get into the deep and scary mess that this year is going to be! Wish me luck!
