UCLan Illustration Degree Show.

I had to go back to Preston today to pick up the rest of my stuff from my uni flat and to hand my keys in. While I was there I tuck my mum over to the Victoria Building with all the Degree Shows where happening.  As today was the last day of the public viewing of the Illustration Degree Show at UCLan. The private viewing was last Friday and it’s been open to the public for a week. I need to go and see all of the work. I have to say there wasn't one piece of work that I didn't love. As I’m swaying towards the fashion route of illustration, I was drawn to the fashion illustration by Harlie McAllister. The women holding the red clutch bag with the tartan dress, I think was my favorite piece. Looking in awe that all of the pieces in the room, I started to think ‘That’s going to be me in two year’. That scared me just a bit.
Everything was different, unique.

News/Amazing People..

I'm so happy to announce that I'm apart of the Dream On Youth Family :) I just got an email this afternoon from the lovely Cydney (who is the creator behind the whole idea), asking me if I would like to be apart of the family. What do you say to that? Well I said 'Yes' obviously!! If you don't what 'Dream on Youth' is, here's a little section from 

'Dream On Youth is where we believe in positive vibes and dreaming big. It was created  with a mission to instill confidence, hope, and humility in this young generation.  To help dreams thrive and show people that the best things are not handed to you, you have to work for them. Founded just March 27th of last year'

I just love the idea behind it & the fact it promotes the works and talents of young people, the don't normally get recognized. And to say I'm the first artist in the family, is just amazing :)
