I've really enjoyed this project so far as it has helped me gain an inside of my own visual style and ideas about how I want to work in the future. As this is the last project of my degree it is not yet finished, but I fell I have reached a point where I know what the final result will be like.
Poster and Postcard- self promotion project
A postcard front and back with one of my illustrations on, this project helped me focus on what kind of style I prefer to illustrate in and how I would promote my work to others.
This project was enjoyable and fun, creating moster designs and thinking of different ways to sell a product created an interesting insight into advertising.
For this project the task was to fill a space with a minimum of ten characters. I created a 3D train carriage with twelve passengers, I wanted them to be interacting and used storyboards as inspiration to plan out each window.
This was one of my favourite projects, having eight weeks to create the ideas and build the train really helped bring all the pieces together and even though some improvements could be made I am very pleased with the final project as it was my first time creating a model of this size.
Othona Costal Park
This project was a private commission for two information boards about Othona community's new costal park. Othona had lots of requirements for the boards such as making the text easy to read for the elderly people who would be visiting often. They also wanted a simple layout which included a photograph of the area and illustrations of the local wildlife. I was given a list of animals, plants and shells and asked to create simple yet effective images for each design.
This project was a fun and interesting commission, thinking of ways to display information for the visually impaired whilst also making it fun for children was a new and exciting challenge. Othona are very happy with the information boards and the park won an award for its over all design last year.
Here are some of my favourite pieces of personal work I have done for fun and experimentation purposes. I enjoy mixing different media and drawing a range of things that interest me.
