Nabokov had a way with words. 

Introducing Lolita...

Some images from my latest project, illustrating the novel 'Lolita' by Vladimir Nabokov. I've been working with mono print and pencil so far, I think the final illustrations will be mono print, I like the gritty texture you get with mono print. Mostly WIPs!

Glue magazine

Here's a photo of my work in Glue magazine, a magazine created by my uni. I'm going to submit more work before I leave, hello free self promotion! Haha

Mr and Mrs

I can't seem to get away from these drawings I did for a project on elderly care last year. I have now added some collage and a nice splash of colour to the original pencil drawings.

I had probably a bit too much fun making these, they make me laugh so much I think I might finish the rest of series and have a little series of jazzy old people collages. These are probably some of the most 'finished' looking illustrations I've done, pretty pleased with them! I also submitted them for the Papergirl Birmingham exhibition. It'll be nice to see them hung up. 

Papergirl Birmingham

I sent some work into Papergirl Birmingham, a free exhibition/movement that is open to anyone and you can send them anything you want. It's such a good idea, here's a little more on it;

"Originating in Berlin, papergirl is a global project that aims to open up the art world onto the urban streets of everyday life.  Donated artworks will be rolled to curious passers by creating a visual spectacle and disturbing the monotony of routine."

I sent in my beloved old people pencil drawings, buuut this time I added some collage to them (saving for next post). The great thing about this exhibition is that it's in Birmingham this year so I can go see it when I go home over Easter!   

Penguin Design Award 2012

This is my entry for the Penguin Design Award.

One flew over the cuckoo's nest.

I wanted to focus on the muddled and murky mind of a mental asylum patient. Using specific excerpts from the book as a collage background, while mainly focusing on the design of the title. Dark and murky, like the undertones found in the book.
