A new set of lovely quotes all hand drawn with 0.3mm fineliner. Hopefully going to carry on with this for a while and create a lovely collection. I will also try to experiment with colour and digitalising my typography with vectors etc.

If anyone has any good quotes feel free to comment and I will upload it when I’m done 🙂

-Apologies for the watermark at the bottom, the disrespectful people of tumblr have drawn me to this! I don’t mind if people like to share my work but when my link is deleted I get angry. Support new artists people!!!

The first of many I hope.

Currently having my facebook and twitter feed full of rubbish about Made in Chelsea so I made this. I am missing doing my typography, there aren’t enough hours in the day! Work, work, work.

Read and enjoy.

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.

 

New Ink Series

21/Mar/12

This is my NEW ink series. This is what i wrote about them on my tumblr earlier:

My new ink series (2012), I like making these because once they’re all dry you can see lots of shapes and figures within the images. I think there is definitely something spiritual about these. Made with indian ink, colours black blue red and green.

I began creating images like this in my first year of university and occasionally I come back to this method of painting, I find it quite relaxing. There is no right or wrong image, they are all made into beautiful pieces of artwork. Maybe the next step for me is creating a colourful typeface. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I do, see what shapes you can find.

A second book design which also includes my very own illustrations and typography, all hand drawn. This project has really opened my eyes to different ways of creating images, whether it’s the media used or the method.

Some close-up screenshots of my most recent work, featuring my abstract ink work, hand drawn typography and ink paintings.

Fashion Progress

12/Mar/12

Some more progress on my Fashion Brief, I have to present this tomorrow.

The theme carries on throughout all the merchandise, (poster, invitations, programme cover). My main inspiration came to me whilst looking at the fashion student’s portfolios and the great way of showing their work in scrapbook form. The words we were given to base our work on was Best of British and collage. I didn’t want to be too cliche so I took the colours from the union jack (red, blue and white) and used them in my pieces. I used my sewing machine to sew the lines onto the denim in these colours. The cut out style is to portray the collage and the cut out templates used when making clothes, I also think this style creates an almost grungy and edgy look, especially as I have left the seams and creases on show.

I have really grown to like this piece of work.

Feedback always welcome, much love and light x

Here’s some quick fashion illustration I did yesterday the theme is British so I used the colours from the Union Jack. Click the top image to see it closer. Hopefully these figures will feature in my fashion show poster…eventually.
