Porto Puppets






These are the four puppets which will be starring in my animation project! They're made from wire, cotton wool, masking tape, polystyrene balls, paper, cardboard, paint and various fabrics and took Georgia and I a very very long time to make!

Alternative energy

I really should start scanning in some more recent work but i'm pretty busy trying to get work finished at the moment so i haven't got round to it!
This is a finished image for our first ideas through design project this year. Theme of alternative energy.

My opinion wasn't that important!

This is my poster design for the National Student Survey. I won the competition but unfortunately the edited version of the poster is rather horrible. I had no part in the editing process. At least i can preserve the original! :3

Birds of paradise





These are some drawings from my summer sketchbook. I spent a lot of the summer in various museums drawing stuffed birds and other curiosities and i think my drawing improved markedly. I hope you like them too. :)

Porto Walker

And this is one of the images from a sequence i developed about a man on an endless climb through Porto. I haven't done any painting for a while so i'm quite pleased with how this turned out.
I'm posting more than one image today since i forgot over the past couple of days!

Old Man Wallace

This is one of a series of three images from a character project in my first year. I want to give people some idea of the way i work so i'm posting some selected older works to begin with. The series of three was one of my favorite things i produced last year. This is composed using scanned textures and line drawings put together in photoshop.

Birds on Stilts


I thought I'd start things off by posting a personal image I'm quite fond off from the start of summer. This is a creature i developed from a dream i had one night. There might be potential for a slightly strange 'picture book' in this i think.
This started as layers of cut paper then was smoothed out in photoshop and a background added. I have another bird-like creature image but I haven't worked on anything else from the dream yet.

Hello

I'm new to blogging but the general idea is to record my illustration and own work and to have something less shameful than deviantart to link people to if they ask about my work!
Hope it works out and that whoever looks at this likes what they see. On with the blogging! :)
