At last! The project is over and I can look forward to the summer holidays!!!!!

In the end, I made a book of my images, layering the paintings with drawings I had made as a child at school, in a "throughout the day" narrative. Although I was relatively pleased with the content, I wasn't happy with the cover of the book which I wanted to resemble a school exercise book - it wasn't thick enough, was too shiny and in the trimming, part of my name was chopped off!!! There wasn't enough time or the right materials available to change it last minute but hopefully this is something I can improve for the exhibition version.

The exhibition- 48 Ours- is open from the 9th to the 10th June at Studio Fold in Hackney- be there!!!!!

Back to school project- 2 weeks until hand-in!!

Here are a few more images from my "back to school" project. We're nearly into the last two weeks before hand-in so stress levels are high! We're also busy preparing for the exhibition so there's not really a lot of time to do anything else! I'm looking forward to the summer holidays when I can do more personal projects and some more card-making. I'm going to Greece at the beginning of July so I'll hopefully get a Greek project done whilst i'm there! Can't wait!!!

48 Ours

("48 Ours" logo copyright of the Exhibition teams)

Keep a weather eye open for this Logo coming soon!!!

48 Ours- COMING SOON!!!!

As I've mentioned before, I will soon be exhibiting my latest illustrations at Studio Fold (at the Fold Gallery) in Hackney for our end-of-year exhibition, "48 Ours". It is the first time I will be exhibiting my work in a professional environment so I am very excited!

Planning and preparation for the exhibition is at an all-time high and posters for the exhibition are set to go out in the next week or so around London so keep your eyes out!!!

This is a self portrait I did as part of the promotion for the exhibition and is actually the first self-portrait I've attempted since being forced to at school! I used coloured inks and it will be used in both posters and in the catalogue for the exhibition!!

Don't forget- "48 Ours", 9th-10th June, Studio Fold, Hackney- BE THERE!!!
