This week I graduated! I am extremely happy to say I now have a First Class honours degree in Graphic Design. For something a little different I edited some of my favourite photos using Photoshop actions from WishWishWish.

Song Sparrow

Here is the A3 illustration I submitted for the Salon Hang at Long Live the Art School.
In fact I drew two different versions, one with black line twigs and one brown. I chose the black for the exhibition in the end.

Both illustrations are hand-drawn with pen and pencil on A3 320gsm handmade cotton rag paper.

The Menagerie

Last month myself and Sam popped to a small exhibition called The Menagerie - a group show of drawing and printwork by Fran Giffard, Izzie Klingels, Ella Johnston and Susie Wright.

All work was was inspired by nature (hence why I wanted to go) and there were some amazing examples of beautiful British illustration, by all four artists. I loved it all!
Some of the detail that has gone into these pencil sketches and prints are incredible, as an illustrator, this is something I definitely aspire to do!

The exhibition space itself was a little strange, and we did at times wonder if we were in the right place. It was in the basement of a hotel, in a dining hall! But nonetheless we had a quick wonder round the amazing work on the walls.

The exhibition is no longer on, however links to the artists websites are above.

Eat Me Magazine

Here are a couple of illustrations that I did for Eat Me Magazine's fifth issue, back in April.

The article was about the traditional English pub (Midsomer Murder's style) being taken over by young, kitsch-y, Cath Kidston wearing families.
