Marble arch/ Edgware road Location drawing

New reportage assignment to create two images capturing the vitality of one of London's main highways, Edgware road.

Here are some developmental sketchbook drawings done on location at Edgware.

More updates coming soon on this project! If mine are selected my images will be exhibited alongside other Middlesex students at the Kingsgate show.

Possibly making this blue one into a limited edition set of screen prints.

One day project: 8 page zine

Another one day project from Andrew Baker (his work is bloody good, check it out).
The brief was to create an 8 page book or zine with the theme of 'eight'.

Being only a one day project my concept wasn't amazingly complicated.

Bought 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' the other day too, read it in two days it was brilliant. Makes me want to become a full time acid enthusiast

Black to white project

We were given a few days with specific instructions where the first of ten pages starts half black and half white, then the tenth page either all black or all white. The rest was up to us.
I gave my one a very 'There will be blood' feel if any of you have seen that.
Hopefully I don't need to explain what my one is about!


I failed this task (The black on the first page was supposed to be on the top) If it was actually going to print I would have done that! Ah well I'm pretty happy with it

The worlds most delicate box

Well today has been a pretty hectic day. 
This morning we got set a brief: 'You are to draw a colourless box that exists in space, if it is opened it will kill everything'.
I thought if it is truly colourless how can I draw it? So I overlapped pieces of paper to let different amounts of light through. (I also made a concertina where viewed from one direction you could see the square, but from the other side you couldn't)

Then we got a much nicer brief later on in the day which gave a few choices.
I chose 'The worlds most delicate box'.

OceanSkyLight Myspace layout and Luis Cook - The Pearce sisters

These guys gave me the pleasure of making them a layout.

Life has been very busy recently! Moved to foggy London town in to some halls which are an hour to an hour and a half away from uni, £5.20 a day to get to, and 4 buses. Just started Illustration and the course is 5 days a week, 10 til 5. YEP TIRED

Anyway here is OceanSkyLight's Myspace with my lovely new layout

We had a lecture from Luis Cook today from Aardman animation.
He is an award winning illustrator and animator, gave an incredibly inspiring talk, and showed us a bit of his work which recently includes work on Wallace and Gromit and the Duracell bunny advert (complete with a making of).

The high point of this was BAFTA winning 'The Pearce Sisters' by Luis.
Just watch it!

Unfortunately I couldn't embed but here are some pictures to convince you the hassle of clicking above is worth it.

As you can tell the sea in the layout is hugely inspired by Cook's waves. Bed time I'm knackered.
