Close Cropping

I don't think I connected very well with this project. I'm not sure why but I just couldn't seem to be able to produce much work that I was happy with...


This has been my favourite project so far, i really enjoyed the maths behind it and the precision, as well as testing myself with things like shadows in 3 point perspective.

Oh Dear...

... Here it comes, the massive back log that is my work. Its safe to say I haven't been feeling myself lately what with the glandular fever and the sheer amount of medication I'm on, but I am finally feeling well enough to tend to my blog. So here it is, the work you haven't seen for from the past month or so, enjoy.

The dreaded cubes...

 Here are some of the mini models before the final pieces were attempted.

 Georgia O'Keeffe inspired my first cube greatly.

 If you can believe it, this cube represents Queen Victoria and her many dull dresses.
 Margaret Calkin James and her poster work, repetition inspired this one.

 Ahh this one took me a great deal of time, it represents wood work and its many joints. it also comes in two pieces.

 The Le Corbusier piece proved most interesting for me as it was the trickiest to put together. And I quite enjoyed the intricate work!

 And finally, the perfect white cube. I got a very high 94% and was joint first in the class for it!

Jon Keegan

Jon's got it all going on in his work. This guy is great and has really good sense of perspective, not just with the lighting but the eyeline of the four standing people.

After my tutorial with Tony I have decided to stick with the setting sun storyboard, and got to work on the colour scheme. The only thing I am struggling with is the colour of the i.


At the start of the project i struggled to break out of the black and white phase and ended up creating a series of lettered creatures (my favourite being the penguin and g-man), which I managed to work into a few 1st ideas. I soon managed to work some colour schemes in however, which seemed to work well.

David Hockney

I quite like David Hockney's work, this piece especially as he makes the most of the colours he uses. I like how he compliments the green fields with the red lines of the mud and trees.

Benito Takes A Walk

After recieving the brief for the Moving Type in Colour project, I started my research by looking at the websites given. I found the cocoe site very interesting and was taken by the Benito Takes a Walk animation. The sound effects are great and I'd love to import a few similar ones into my work next week.

Here are the finished pieces for the Black and White project.

A bit late I know, but here is some sketchbook work from the previous project, Black and White.
