Recently I was kindly asked to return to my old Secondary School and sixth form, Boston High School, to talk to pupils on International Women’s Day about my progress and uni courses.
I had the chance to talk to sixth formers and a class of year 8’s and took pretty much every project I’ve done over the past 4 years! It was great so see what they thought about my work as well as give some advice to those considering applying for arts courses when they finish school.
It was my dear old Dad’s birthday recently and as always I made him a card. This year I went for a ‘back to the future’ theme and the card showcases Dad next to Marty McFly in a scene from Back to the Future III. I was pretty happy with this! I used ink and watercolour pencil and was happy with the tone and shapes and overall image!
At uni we recently had a Mono Printing tutorial and today in a spare couple of hours I decided to have a go at creating some imagery! Using reference from a video of my late rabbit Sooty, I created a print from laying the paper over the ink and simply drawing onto it.
As a real beginner to printing, I really like the simplicity of this method. I was happy with the results too and the loose feel to the images.
