Here are some of the images from the Boscanova exhibition. Overall it was a pretty good night, despite losing my favourite headband. There were some really good vibes and lots of mulled wine, and even though not many of the framed work was sold on the night, the exhibition will carry on until sometime in January.

Hmmm...Okay so I made these owls by casting them from a silicone mould that I made from a sculpy model. It was quite a fun experience, although the process of getting the perfect cast was quite challenging, as it is a messy process involving the of nasty sticky chemicals that you have to mix together and then pour in the mould. The fun part was painting them!!! I chose three colours in the end and kept them quite simple, as they were quite fiddly. Overall I am quite happy with them, but a lot of their feet didn't come out as well as I'd hoped.

Here are some of the prints I have screen printed for the Boscanova exhibition. The theme for the exhibition was meant to be winter/festive, but I didn't want to create images that solely for this exhibition. I wanted the prints to look good on the wall anytime of the year. Pretty pleased with the way they came out, even if they weren't as perfect as I'd have liked them to be.

Here's one of my designs for the penguin book cover competition. I like the ideas of the shadows and the hand manipulating the bird. Although I think I need to use some diiferent lighting and adjust the shadow composition slightly. I also feel the typography I have created is quite strong.
Oh wow! I really seem to have neglected my blog, but now I've started my second year of illustration and I have quite a few bits to put up. Here are some sketches I did over the summer. I'm quite like them as they have a certain fluid style. I may make some of them into screen prints

This was a project, in which I had to work in a group to create a fanzine. The fanzine is entitled consumerism for 6-12 year olds and illustrates how children can be brainwashed into buying anything. Therefore the concept of the fanzine is purely satirical.
