Design by myself.

Any feedback would be amazing and I’m sure Denise would love to hear what you think as well. Enjoy

 

Pattern of Life

2/Jun/12

A collaborative piece with Documentary Photographer, Joe Jinks.

We created twenty-eight photographs that demonstrated the recurring patterns within human life, animals and nature.

Each page has a hole cut into it which allows the reader to see the next photograph and gives them the opportunity to see the relationship between humans, animals and nature.

Also in the book is a unique essay by Joe inspired by people like Carl Sagan and Terence McKenna.

The two original books each come with a protective slipcase.

This was my most enjoyable assignment so far, hopefully going to make some more so let us know if you want one, either on here or e-mail me on: christiepowers@hotmail.co.uk


Lots of lovely new stuff on our Big Cartel!

Zines, stickers, bookmarks, postcards, prints and the t-shirts are on sale too. Work features illustration, art and photography by either Joe or myself. All of the work was shown at the Book Arts Fayre last weekend.

So please take 5 minutes to check our new stuff, enjoy and thank you!

Book Arts Fayre 6

28/Feb/12

Some photographs from the Book Arts Fayre at ffotogallery on Saturday. I had such a great day selling and showing my own creations, seeing everyone’s fantastic work and meeting lots of lovely people (and eating vegan cake). All the work was incredible and the atmosphere throughout the day was amazing; the day as a whole was a massive success. I was joined by the final year Documentary Photography guys who also had a great collection of personal work, a full list of the guys from Newport will be up later.

The work I featured at the Fayre will shortly be up on my bigcartel (zines, postcards, greetings cards, stickers, t-shirts). I’ll keep you all posted.

I would like to thank everyone that came along and took the time to look at my art (and even buy it!) and a special thank you to Helen who organised it.

Photographs by Katrina Forey.

The views at the Lake an hour or so before the sun set completely. Such a beautiful place to be.

The Lakes

5/Feb/12

When in the Lake District I shot 6 films full of the beautiful landscapes that crossed my path. Here are some of them. Click on the photograph to see a better quality.

My current project is ‘Faces’. Part of the project is to create a poster that will advertise Newport Graduate Festival, so eventually there will be some typography involved. This is the first step of my development. I have chosen to cover the subject ‘Face of Nature’ and use photographs of the students layered with Lake District photos (nature). There is a certain ‘green’ feel to these images, which will coincide with the city campus’ ‘eco’ status.

Here are my first attempts, let me know what you think.
