My NUA Experience 2011-2014

It’s been over a month since I last wrote a blog post, and a busy month it has been! In this time I’ve handed in my last ever project as a NUA Illustration student, discovered that I’ve achieved a First Class Honours in BA Illustration and achieved a place on MA Children’s Book Illustration at […]

My Final Piece!

My Final Piece!

This week and last week has been an incredibly stressful week in pushing to get my final piece perfect for the fabric printing deadline which was this Tuesday. I spent a long time making sure the piece was right and it went through a lot of changes but now I think it is up to […]

Almost there with the final narrative piece!

Almost there with the final narrative piece!

It’s been a week with a LOT of development and perfecting for this final piece. Above is an image I made last night after taking on advice from Peter yesterday afternoon about how I was losing the ‘handmade’ feel in the scale of the objects. I wrote about this more in my journal book but […]

Considering Framing and Composition

Considering Framing and Composition

Today, as mentioned in my reflective journal notebook I am really pushing to sort out this final piece and focusing on three things to do so which include: Sorting out the images of Celie and Nettie and possibly other side characters: Corrine, Sophia and Shug.

3 weeks to go and Finalising my Pieces!

3 weeks to go and Finalising my Pieces!

With less than 3 weeks to go I am certainly feeling the pressure of deadline: mainly because of the added pressure of preparing everything I’d want to be printed on fabric and other materials. The fabric printing deadline for hand-in is next Tuesday the 12th May which I discovered today and the textiles technician at […]

3 to 4 weeks to go and Crit feedback

Yesterday I had a crit reviewing my progress so far and was able to get everyone’s opinions on some of the things I’ve been stuck with which was a huge help and a relief. The main thing I’ve been struggling with is making my imagery sequential and making what I have so far more relevant […]

The Color Purple- Imagery printed onto Fabric!

The Color Purple- Imagery printed onto Fabric!

This week my imagery was printed onto fabric which is something I’ve never done before and a very exciting part of this project for me! ‘The Color Purple’ is an epistolary novel, made up of letters in communication between protagonist Celie and eventually her sister Nettie. Individually, the letters don’t bear much meaning but when […]

Shrinkles for Clutter City

Shrinkles for Clutter City

Posted by + on Mar 17, 2014 in NUA Year 3, Personal Work

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 […]

BA8: The Color Purple- Updates and Progress

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.

UEA Collaboration- The final show and the final imagery!

UEA Collaboration- The final show and the final imagery!

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 […]
