A Peek Into My Portfolio..

I thought I'd give you a peek into my portfolio for the first semester of my course. The pictures are a bit on the rubbish side but because I'm on Christmas break and have no new work to show you guys I'd thought I would post them anyway.

The Big Draw

Introduction: Can you draw your way from A to B?
We were paired up and set a project to draw large scale a journey starting from A and finishing a B.
This project was set a couple of weeks again, so I thought I'd share a few pictures from the project. I'm in love with my rucksack.
Project partner: Maya. Be sure to check out her illustration blog!

100 Words.. Sketchbook Work.

Our recent project was to obtain a second hand object to work from, spend no more then one English pound on something at the flea market. Make a 100 drawings of said object & write a short text in response to the object.
This are some of my favorite pages in my sketchbook for this project..
I'll post my final piece for the project once I've tweaked some things on it.

To Have Ones Bee In Ones Bonnet.

'Bee In Your Bonnet'

This was my final piece for a recent project. Project title 'Idioms'. I choose to do the phrase 'Bee In Your Bonnet' which means 'Preoccupied or obsessed with an idea'. The final print was done on a Zinc plate and etched into. I plan to wax the plate up again and work more flowers around her head because I feel that the phase doesn't come across as strong if I left it like this.

The Awkward Introduction..

So I'm new to the whole blogging world, so please be kind. I've wanted to start a blog for ages now but I've never had the guts to do it. But here I am taking the bull by the horns (I think that's the right metaphor to use). I'm in my first year of my Degree in Illustration. I'm not the most amazing writer in the world and I do ramble on sometimes, so I'll apologise for that now. 
I've started this blog to mainly share my work with . What inspires me. Some of my favourite things. And just general nonsense.
I hope you enjoy looking through my blog for nonsense and I'll see you around! :)
