Thought you all might like to have a little look at what my sketchbooks look like. This was for an advertising module , (not something Im particularly good at) where I chose Liberty to try and design a package for. The theme had to be based around Natural History and not wanting it to be too stilted I chose to approach it with quirky cartoon like illustrations with pops of colour. Everything you see is all my own work, the cut-outs are mine overlaying a selection of past advertising campaigns for Liberty and patterns that were available in store. Were always required to show our research and what my lecturers never quite understood was that my development of an idea happened all throughout my books alongside whatever research I do. I would always be marked down because they thought I hadn’t developed an idea clearly. Im not very good at drawing an idea and then doing an arrow to show how it went to the next stage and the next. Its just not my style. My favourite out of the book is the badger and fox paintings, not to everyones taste but I loved the whimsical but evil  look about them.
