This is today’s doodle. It began as a bunch of dots, then I turned them into shapes and patterns and incorporated some typography. I made this with my 0.4mm pen on A4 paper, got it onto illustrator and vectorised it. I’m really happy with this and believe it should be seen bigger so I included some close up screen shots. I see this piece as a celebration of shape. I hope you enjoy it.




Indian ink and paint brush. This is my favourite so far, I could almost see it as a wrapping paper or wall paper, definitely going to try and screen print when I have time!

Feedback appreciated! x

My aim at the moment is to experiment in creating similar images using different methods. The two previous images are either done left handed or with my eyes shut. This one is using pencil whilst concentrating using my right hand. There are more to come soon, hopefully using different materials for example, indian ink. Let me know if you have anymore ideas on materials or methods I could use.

Some illustrations I have done recently in regards to my new assignment. Hopefully I’ll have the time to screen print them!

South Devon just before the storms hit.

This happened a couple of weeks ago. I finally created the drawing I have wanted to since the day it happened. Something to tick off my list.

Don’t waste a day.

Joachim Schmid


I read in the British Journal of Photography that people are speculative about what to label Joachim Schmid but why is there always a need for a label?

He calls himself a visual artist.

For 3o years he went through archives, he found photos in flea markets and adapted them into his own projects,

“editing, interpreting and re-purposing”

I personally really like this project- Photogenic Drafts because it’s inspiring for my current assignment in the way that he presents his found photos.

“Family snaps, ID photos, strips from photo booths – all have been archived and the place and date of their discovery recorded by Schmid. And this is vital. It is the moment the artist finds them which marks their transition from personal photograph to (part of) an artwork.”
