The Christian Union held an events week and one of the things going on was an exhibition on the theme of truth. I was originally going to enter a triptych but unfortunately I ran out of time, here is what I entered.

The project we have just completed was an information illustration project, and I chose the topic of hip hop. As well as being a fan of this genre, I think it often gets a bad press when actually it began as a reaction AGAINST the violent surroundings of the Bronx. I made a dummy book focusing on the 70s and the birth of hip hop culture. Here are a few photos of the artworks (given more time, I would definately format the text better!)
As on the ball as I always am, I just took some photos of the children's book project from last term. For this project, I illustrated an Indian folk tale called 'Four Brothers' which is about four brothers (yep) learning to work together after their father's death. I really enjoyed this as it was a chance to use the rich colours and patterns from Indian culture to influence my artworks. Below are some slightly dodgy photos of the artworks and detail from them. They are A2 width which is why I haven't been able to scan them! I still haven't found exactly how I like to produce artworks, and storyboarding pages is still my favourite part of the process, but I enjoyed painting these all the same, and I think it gave me more patience.

So my Dad has finally jumped ship from the civil service and pursued his lifelong dream (no, not the cinema) (or the caravan site) of owning a bike shop. With his fantastic art direction skills I have done few illustrations for his website (currently in progress, but still viewable) http://www.bluedoorbicycles.co.uk/ including a dodgy wonky logo which unfortunately due to lack of time had to be taken on in its unfinished state - any of you artists/illustrators must know how much of a nightmare handing in something unfinished or not quite right is. But its happened so whatevs. Anyway here's a few things >>
