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 […]

BA8 progress after 2 crits

Unfortunately it has been a while since I have been able reflect in detail on my progress and learning so far. Thankfully I have made a lot of progress in the past couple of weeks I feel! The image below is from almost 2 weeks ago or perhaps less where I laid all my work […]

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

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 […]

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 […]

UEA Collaboration, final images!

UEA Collaboration, final images!

Today I’ve bought together some final images from my collaboration with UEA student Connie Cubitt. As seen, the images are very experimental. We had a total change of story in the last week of the collaboration so they images are a little rushed. Each responds to a particular quote to the story and I collaged […]

Graphic Design Collaboration Progress

Graphic Design Collaboration Progress

Alongside my other projects I’ve been working on my collaboration with a Graphic Design student in rebranding Pilgrims Cheese. So far, I’ve created a set of patterns with oil pastel inspired by some of the textures of the Bayeux Tapestry and photoshopped them over the illustrations of the characters which my collaborator created. Ultimately I […]

Exhibition at The Playhouse

Posted by + on Feb 20, 2014 in Exhibitions, NUA Year 3, Personal Work

My year group have recently had a small exhibition in The Playhouse in Norwich and here are a few photos of the piece of work I displayed there: an oil pastel drawing of a bulbul bird.   The exhibition ran for a couple of weeks and seemed to go down well from comments overheard from […]

UEA Collaboration Progress!

UEA Collaboration Progress!

Here are some images of my project so far with UEA student Connie Cubitt. The images aren’t necessarily the final images and are responses from workshops and my own ideas. At present themes of the text revolve much around isolation and depression but this could change.  

Dissertation and BA8 initial progress

Posted by + on Feb 10, 2014 in NUA Year 3, University Projects

A couple of days ago I finally handed in my dissertation and I am so pleased. As mentioned in my reflective notebook, I had to make a horrible decision in the final week of whether or not I needed to restructure the entire essay and unfortunately I did. This was obviously a massive stress and […]
