Been busy, busy, busy with uni work.  Nearly finished my final year essay and been busy getting samples made for the end of module in a few weeks time.  Essay not too bad once I got started with it, thankfully.  It did help to have made a start reading books over the school summer holidays and to have plenty of research before making a start with it.  Will get some pictures of the samples completed on here soon.

Another year at uni

Well its the start of another year at Bolton University. 

Busy, busy, busy with the motif designs for the 2nd year contemporary textiles module. I'll get some images online soon from drawn and made samples.

Also really busy with the 3rd year essay and research.  Somehow not enjoying this module in the same way as the hands on module.

Been busy with essay and kids but I've finally managed to get some new images done for you to have a look at.  Have line drawn some car parts, cricket figures and a stopwatch/watch. I'm going to have to start working on photoshop now to get some collections together ready for assessment.

Will get some more images and information blogged soon.

my stuff

I adore tattoo images.  I like the books and images that are produced by the artists at Tattoo Johnny and Tattoo Ideas.  Its within these many books that I have found these images and drawn them to improve my drawing skills.  I go everywhere with my sketchbook and either Tattoo Johnny book or Tattoo Ideas book and draw at every opportunity.

Card project

Currently working on an exciting project with Hallmark cards.  Really enjoying this and the mens occasion theme and images that have been created within this project.

Pencil to Pixel

Using flower images I had drawn, these were worked on photoshop to create patterns that could be used for fabric design.  These were then used with a scanned photograph from Elle Decoration Magazine to show how these patterns would work within a room setting.

Painted flowers

This module involved drawing and painting lots of flowers. 

Digital print for surface design

Drawn images were scanned into photoshop and played around with to create patterns for digital printing.

Ideas - bag charm with a difference

Using old school style tattoo images I created this applique image to hang from my art case like a bag charm.


Line drawings and ideas relating to the Evolve theme.
