Some sketches of cartoon characters I did while laying in bed with a bad cold today. I used a special biro pen that I got for my 16th birthday, I think from Parker. My focus was on getting the proportions right, hence why there are a few basic shapes in there to help guide the heads and such.

A very old digital painting (2011/12?) of Daenerys Targaryen I did while watching Game of Thrones. It’s very sketchy and quite messy because I felt like letting loose on her hair and the toning and layers.

A iPhone picture taken at Bournemouth beach in around June, 2013. I went to visit AUB Open Day (for Animation Production) and decided to stay there for a weekend to look around. 
This has been edited using a couple of Photoshop PSDs - one warm toned (for the sand), and the other cool toned (for the water and sky).

During August 2013, I went to Edinburgh for the first time in my life (despite being a Scot at heart!), and visitied Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence when she’s in Scotland. I took many more pictures, but these two just about sum up my experience - architectural awe and Scotland bank note excitement!

Random photographs of flowers I took in the garden of my new house. I am going to use them to create still life studies from.

For my end of year show we had to design posters to put up around the college advertising it. Unfortunately, I didn’t put mine in on time because I was ill, but I’m going to share it anyway. The image used in the circle is from a photogram I did based off of a digital negative version of my initial Artefact visual brainstorm. 

An A3 page from my Artefact sketchbook looking briefly into the works of Kurt Schwitters. This page came about when I went to visit the Tate Britain and I attended the “Schwitters in Britiain” exhibition. On the next page (which I will upload at a later date) I went into recreating my own versions of some of his mixed media panel work.

Ideas and Updates…

I’ve recently decided to make the switch from my Wordpress blog to here. Initially I thought it’d be an awesome idea to have two separate blogs (on separate domains) to split up my midnight musings and my actual work, but it proved to be way too difficult for me to actually maintain. I come on Tumblr so much more because I have my own personal blog and I have friends on here, so it just made sense to be using a blog that’s connected to my main account as my portfolio and my actual work blog.

This means I’m going to be posting text posts and photo posts from now on, but the text posts will be few and far between until summer because I’m right in the middle of my 1st year FMP - I have around 4 weeks left, yikes! 

Anyway, to get rid of the confusion, the picture above is just a random collage that I did on Photoshop when I was thinking of my theme ideas. My FMP project is called “Artefact”, and I am working with the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology in Cambridge, England. The nudity is basically down to my exploration of Greco-Roman sculpture and Renaissance portraits and just how I could portray nudity in both an ancient and modern way in my final pieces.

A personal project I’ve been working on. Every month I take all of the photos off my iPhone and turn my favourite ones into a collage. This particular one includes pictures from trips to Trafalgar Square, Windsor Park, Harry Potter Studio Tour at Leavesden, the docks at Gloucester, the Museum of Zoology in Cambridge, a Chinese meal in Chinatown, fish from a local pet shop, a random picture of a scarce looking shopping centre, and my cat.
