Image and Ob Project

Yay all finished :)

My project was based on Cheddar and the idea that people are only sugary noice to you to get at your money! I based it on a poem I wrote about it called 'Shoplady' and the result is a concertina book. I experimented a lot with texture, lots of bubblewrap, newsprint, textured and patterned paper! Looking back, I wasn't too happy with all the spreads, so I have only put images of the ones I am happy with on here! If I were to do it again, I would change a lot of things, first thing would be the typography!

Drawing From Life

These are from Esmé's life drawing classes. Acrylic paints, palette knives and one line drawings! I absolutely love life drawing.
One line drawing without looking at the paper! Quite an achievement!

4 Words Project

The word SUPPORT looked at rising sea levels in London, Venice and Tokyo..... Again, I wanted to do more pages for this booklet but didn't manage it....

Basically there's a flap of the sealine first which flaps down to reveal a building underwater
Below is my line drawing of To-keeeeeee-yo! and then the image that appeared in the booklet

Four Words Project

The four words project I was a little disappointed with, wish I'd spent more time on it.

Basically my theme was....the environment (and how it's being slightly destroyed :p)

I decided to do little 'environmental awareness' booklets with flaps to have that 'reveal' factor!

The word ENCLOSE....

Took the idea of birds migrating and no longer having anywhere to they are being shot into space!

Basically the top piece would show the bird in it's environment. They have cut outs so the bird can be seen from the piece underneath+is then flapped up to reveal it in space!
I used national birds from the UK, China and USA.

Pastiche Project

Well the other day was the 'Pastiche' Presentation so I thought it was about time I put some Oliver Kugler inspired work up!
