Miles Davis.

Watched a documentary about the life of Miles Davis. Influencing this drawing.

Our project is to produce illustrations as a reaction to these four words: 
Balance, Disperse, Enclose and Sustain.

After development I think I'm closing in on the visual portraiture potential of the four words. I'm not much of a conceptual, however think i can use portraiture to show the elderly and musicians in later life getting to the end of their tether; worn down by lifestyle and career.
This idea links in with the four words given, how I will communicate these ideas in a stronger more direct way is yet to be explored.

Started My Degree.

So I've started my degree in Illustration. Trying to keep an open mind.
Here's some drawings I've been doing. Quite chuffed with them actually, took me a few weeks to remember i could draw after the summer but i'm in the swing now. More should follow.

'Everything you imagine is real'

A final piece from a project about quotes. Thinking of using this for an animation. The basic idea for an animation that is, of a tree growing and a civilisation starting to grow within...

.Got To Love Mono Printing

Playing with PS Cut out tool

I really find the angular shapes in the face visually pleasing, in a strange way.
Invites exciting ideas for portrait paintings / collage in my head with mixed media.....
I'll give it a go when I get the chance.

.Stop Frame Animation

Followed on from a project ablout contradicting materials.

.Llama Dry Point Prints

Final images from project based around a phobia of Llamas.
I wanted to create a funny irony but the prints ended up becoming more serious

...How can you be afraid of a Llama?
