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. Making sure all the images are perfect and there is […]

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

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. I haven’t blogged much about this at all yet so hopefully this will provide a detailed reflective summary of the work so far! To begin, I created […]

Week 2

Today marks the end of our second week into BA8 and I’ve not done as much work as I’d hoped and like: creating more initial, visual work specifically. On Monday I completed the first final draft of my dissertation which met the word limit. This is obviously still going to need some major changes before […]

First week back, BA8 begins.

After a long an much needed Christmas break, we started back at uni this Monday with about half a year till we graduate! Last term was definitely the most stressful term I’ve ever experienced however it really paid off as I got a much higher mark that I expected and got another first! This has […]
