V&A Illustrations Awards 2012

Here's my entry for the annual V&A Illustration awards

I know I've used these images to death but I still like them so up they go!

Fingers and toes crossed.

Will update with screenprints and sketches over Christmas (while quickly making my family some Christmas cards!)

That awkward post

Long time no post. I'm now in my third and final year at uni, so much to do at the moment; competitions, projects, dissertation work and now I finally decided it was time to start posting here again.
Also joined Twitter (after not liking it for a long time) it's actually so fun! I use it for business/illustration purposes (and maaaybe to follow Jimmy Carr)

Here's some sketches from my latest uni project. It's reportage based on elderly people and dance. It's a bit of a continuation from my last project which was also about elderly people.

I haven't used mechanical pencil for sooooo long! i missed it. I tried to capture the character of the person and the emotion, think it worked pretty well.
I can't decide between sticking with charcoal or going with pencil... hmmm

Print print print.

Some of my prints from my current project. Some successful, some not... it's all a learning curve though.

I really like these lino prints, I think they came out really well. I'm glad too because it took forever to cut the shape out!

Mono, doesn't look as good in the scan. I liked this a lot but it didn't suit my project so I left it out.

VERY experimental screen print, I liked using this medium for such a sketchy drawing, they don't go together but I like it.
