I read The Times newspaper at work… and came across this front page of The Times2 (alternative pull out section of music, fashion and art etc). I really love the composition. The original front cover had a heading bit written on the catwalk but I used the trusty scalpal to cut it out and have glued a white background to it, making the catwalk stand out as brilliant white 🙂 I’m not sure what exactly...

What is there not to love about the 30 day free trial of Adobe Illustrator CS4? I heart vector art I heart being able to change my imperfections I heart illustrator

I wanted to add some Photography work to my portfolio so me and my 2 best friends went to the park in Kings Lynn (known as ‘The Walks’ to locals) and shot some fashion type, autumn photos in November 2007.It was a bit chilly, but a nice sunny day luckily 🙂We took LOADS of clothes and accessories in a tiny Ford KA…. and got changed inside it with all the stuff! OMG You should have...

More early work, but I decided that this deserved its own post! 🙂 I needed more stuff for my Portfolio and somehow came up with the idea of doing make-up packaging with the theme of 7 deadly sins. With the help of 6 of my friends I did 2 photoshoots and shot loads of pictures… it was SO MUCH fun! 🙂 I <3 Collages 🙂 Here’s the divider/title sheet I used for my Portfolio showing...

One of the problems of only just having started this blog last month is that you only get to see my current work… when I think you need the whole story! So what I’ve done is dipped my hand into my portfolio I took around to unis (and get accepted by 2 when I clearly wasn’t ready haha) and also some other bits and pieces that I really like and think show who I am…...

Last summer I went to Reading Festival with my friends Laura, Nadia and Christie and we had an AMAZING time… what a summer! After doing the gouache faces with Hilary I had the idea to do a painting in the same style for my friends, one each for christmas. HOWEVER, I started and didn’t get around to even finishing one, let alone 3 haha I found it last week after my major room clear out...

….I realise that we probably don’t know each other very well (blogger, me and reader, you lol) but one thing that you will come to notice is my love for Damask prints/patterns! (… well, if you hadn’t already guessed anyway…) I love the black and white and white on black versions best I think… colour makes it too jazzy? I love Damask so much I even sleep surrounded by it…. It looks very nice in...

RandomTake Out?

This doesn’t really have anything to do with my course, or Graphic Design really but I just needed to share it with the rest of the world really lol I will probably end up doing this kind of thing every now and then… Yesterday we went on a trip to Nottingham Trent Uni and after looking round etc we went into the city for shopping (Primark queen at work)… and then on the way back...

Haha, thinking up the cheesy title’s makes me smile 🙂 The next Photoshop project for Luke is to design a screen splash (start up screen bit) for Adobe Photoshop CS4…. using only the colour we’ve been given (as well as black and white). I’ve got Reflex Blue (below), and am quite happy with it…. but I want to make sure I do something totally original…. no water or dolphins – SO CLICHE! I’ve got a...

Vera Wang’s roses are most deffinitely NOT red lol That would be far too easy for me to replicate…. Hilary’s new project (well, I say new… we’ve had 3 weeks on it now) is that we’ve chosen an advert from her selection and have to reproduce it as accurately as we can. It’s all about attention to detail; every colour, every line and every stroke of a brush should match up! I chose the Vera...

I’m not really getting the hang of this blogging everyday thing… I’ve just blogged 3 times on the same day :S Haha Anyway… Wednesday is Adobe Illustrator day… and so this is the entry for Wednesday, but on Saturday lol Our project, the first proper project for Illustrator so far, is to create an instructional illustration; We have to make an A3 sheet of instructions using vectors and mainly the bezier tool… I’ve chosen to...

…. before you say anything – no, I’m not getting revenge on anyone! lol It’s not my style, I’m too nice 🙂 I’m sposed to be working on my ideas for Emma’s new project (3D design award) for which we have to choose a phrase or quote and represent it on a plaque type thing. We’ve been given a limited space of 10x25cm… but no width so it can have parts coming off it. I’ve...

… it has been indeed! 🙁 Last week in Paul’s lesson (Visual recording on Friday afternoons) we started drawing some still life colourful objects arranged on a trolley in the middle of the room… bottles, vases etc (Picture credit to Miss Neve) I’m doing the left hand end, from the end… I know what I mean haha Yesterday we carried on with it… the aim is to end up with quite a good representation of...

Barrack Obama is the 44th President of the United States of America… and to celebrate, there is a website allowing you to create your own Obama-like posters which are said to have won him the election, designed by a bloke(?) called Shepard Fairey. My tutor posted the website http://obamiconme.pastemagazine.com/ on his blog and asked us to make our own Obama style poster…. so I did: What do you think? The next President, maybe? haha (At...

This is part of my drawing work – Friday afternoons, I DREAD! Drawing isn’t really one of my strong points, but this is a piece of work that I actually like! (out of 8 drawings btw hah)I used 2 different thickness fine liners and different stroke directions and weights to determine different objects. Update 05.02.09 – We got our grades back for this series of drawings today… I got Pass/Merit…. which I’m fine with, ‘cos...
