This week I created some jewellery for Clutter City out of Shrinkles! I’d never tried this before and had always been curious of how well they’d turn out I used some frosted ones and normal plain ones and created some hand drawn teacup jewellery. Next time I will probably try inkjet shrinkles to print onto rather than drawing them out as colouring the cups took a really long time! I also think that the ones which were only line drawings were the most successful after all so I could have saved a lot of time!

This post should provide an overall progress summary of my project so far which is illustrating / creating a visual response to ‘The Color Purple’ by Alice Walker. I haven’t blogged much about this at all yet so hopefully this will provide a detailed reflective summary of the work so far!
In my last post about my collaboration with Connie Cubitt, a UEA creative writing student, I mentioned some final imagery which I had created. Before print the next day I made some small changes and arranged the images into the ‘traditional penguin spreads’ of which we were instructed to do. I placed the quotes which I’d chosen to focus on on the spreads with the images. The quotes were ones which had really caught my attention in the narrative. What stuck out for me was the descriptive language and the way an atmosphere was created. When I read the story it was easy to imagine the life of the protagonist and the eerie but magical setting they found themselves in.
