I am sooooo keen on the latest Visual Expression project to make a zine – my fave project so far! For those of you who don’t know what a zine is, it’s a handmade, mini magazine which has a small print run of usually 500 or less.  They are usually quirky, controversial and very experimental so the complete opposite to the Magazine project (for which I received some quite good feedback in a critique on...

Since Wednesday I had been hearing about places around England which had snow and wondering if/when Lincoln would get frosted. It was 12.27am yesterday when I looked out of the window and it had snowed! This is crazy! Snow in November? It was too exciting to miss so I just HAD to go outside with my flatmate and her boyfriend. Later in the afternoon I made the risky trek up Steep Hill to the Cathedral...

After talking to Tim last week, I decided that I wanted to reshoot my images. I wanted something that I could find a lot of, could shoot in the same style and that was different to what everyone else was doing. I came up with 2 ideas: Road surface text and Yellow signs. I decided to take Aled out on our weekly Cafe Nero sketching trip Tuesday and go with both ideas, which I could...

I mentioned a couple of posts ago that one of the next projects would involve city typology photography. I ventured out into Lincoln, photographing every piece of signage/typographic anything and everything. 100 odd photos later and I had a good mix of typographic examples – road signs, street names, bins, road markings, instructions, logos. I have uploaded most of them to my student flickr if you fancy a peek? So we had to choose our...

Here’s a question for you: What can you make with….. …A Morrison’s Value mixing bowl A metre of green ribbon An A1 sheet of green card An A4 sheet of red paper A black polystyrene pizza packaging tray A metre of white cotton material and A Poundland Solar Panel Garden Post Light? (which I got I.D.ed for because apparently it could be used as a weapon so you need to be 21 to buy it – so...

Carrying on from part 1… I am thinking about some Graphic representations of gamblings sayings ‘Cheap thrills, only 2p’ or some old fashioned fairground cries… ‘Roll up, Roll up’, ‘Prize everytime’ That crazy, colourful, word art style typography which reminds me of the fair, the circus and the seaside all rolled into one… That last picture of the carousel – It’s so hideous and hard to read!! Euk! But it is typical typography of a fairground ride!...

As the second part of our Visual Art Award (follow up to Printmaking) we have been set a multidisciplinary project. This means that we can choose to use a range of disciplines from the ‘art’ family: Textiles, Graphic Design, Illustration, Photography, 3D, Painting, Collage…. I can’t think of anymore? haha The theme is Leisure which means, that like last time, it could be anything: Travelling, Cooking, Gardening, Collecting…. you name it, someone in the world...

Back in September 2009 I was just starting a typographic CD project. At the time I was looking for fashion illustration imagery showing use of ink and watercolour, and I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for… doesn’t it always happen like that? You see a lot of something and then when you need it you can’t find it? Well anyway, I really like the fashion illustration style so often search behance, flickr and...

I haven’t blogged for nearly 2 weeks now! Crazy! I’ve finished college for christmas now so have been doing some shopping, wrapping and snapping(photographs). The snow has caused a lot of hassle the past couple of days but I wanted to look at it more positively; people forget it’s rare for England to get a good lot of snow so stop moaning and start enjoying! Parts of America seem to deal with it being snowy...

I work at a chinese restaurant, and something has been bugging me for weeks. One of my jobs before we open is to clean the salt, pepper and toothpick trays. I do this every Tuesday, and for a while now I have been seeing a face in the arrangement! It was very co-incidental/odd/perfect when at the ucas fair last week, a student at Leeds College of Art and Design told me about a ‘creative faces’ competition that is...

Something really cool happened last night/today, my friend Bobbins submitted one of my sunset photos to notcot.org, which if you’re not familiar with… basically it’s a website where people can nominate other people’s work which they think is cool/good/interesting. So there are lots of cool stuff on there… but the exciting thing is that the website administrators don’t just let anything be posted on there so it’s really good if your work IS featured! WELL I didn’t know he...
