My NUA Experience 2011-2014

Videos from BA6 up at last!

This week I’m hoping to have completely re – designed my website complete with the work from BA6 (our last uni project) which is all very exciting. Progress in the things I have been doing have been hindered however as I have fallen ill. Despite this I’ve managed to upload my vidoes / experimental films […]

The Yellow Wallpaper – Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Final book & Project Summary

This has been another really beneficial term in me developing and improving my working practice.

Like any project I think I could have done even […]

Over the past 2 days at uni, we were put into random pairs and given the task to respond to a word between the two of us and present final illustrations for it today (Friday). Initially I thought this was going to go badly as both me and my partner have very different styles and […]

BA6 Progress Over Easter.

Posted by + on Apr 10, 2013 in NUA Year 2, The Yellow Wallpaper

Overall I think I have definitely made progress with the projects this Easter, although more so with the Yellow Wallpaper in some ways.

Easter Cards

Over the Easter holidays I set myself the task of designing and illustrating my own Easter Cards! I kept them quite simple, using oil pastel to create different coloured patterned eggs. I scanned in the illustrations and corrected a yellow egg using photoshop as the contrast wasn’t as great as the other eggs. The image […]

Figure behind the wallpaper

Figure behind the wallpaper

Even though this was only a rough idea, I’m pretty happy with the effect I ended up with! As you can hopefully see, I tried to create a figure (abstract as it is) behind the wallpaper. To do this I used the layering of oil pastel. I think this is something I can really develop […]
