Sketchbook work

WP_000514 WP_000511

I’m in the middle of watching Braveheart but I thought I’d show you what I’ve doing with my day. These aren’t for anything in particular as yet. I’m just concentrating on working on a sketchbook to get plenty of ideas down so I can then start afresh on something more substantial. Playing around with pattern and texture, i’ve been looking a fair bit at the work of William Morris and Grayson Perry. Think I’m going to play around with some paper too.

I’m also going to be doing the back, sack and crack equivalent of tidying up my website…spruce it up a bit.

Thought Id share some photographs of my sketchbooks with you while I’m working on some new projects. In the selection I have sketchbooks that I used on my textile course. looking at different inspirations and experimenting with textures and pattern in fabrics as well as surface pattern. All knit work and drawings are my own, there are cut outs from magazines that I have in there that show where my inspiration came from as well as my own photographs of my surrounding woods. Ive also put in some photographs of my first cut-out book I did, as well as another sketchbook that went with it along the theme of Japan and Nature. I’ve then added my sketchbook that was part of my illustration degree. It was to create a reference book in our own style. The work I’ve shown from it is once again my own that I incorporated, also thought I’d do some close ups of my typography. Enjoy! x

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.
