Artist Book

The sunshine has come to an end so this is what i have been working on through the rain. Nice to be able to finally get back into the swing of things again. I’ve been attempting to create this artist book for a while. It’s my entry into the Sheffield International Artist Book Prize. Hopefully I’ll have more luck with this competition that I did with the last one I entered, but that’s just the way it goes sometimes. As I mentioned, I’ve been working on this for a while but i was completely stumped for ages as to what direction to go in for it. Also, everytime I came up with an idea and went to work on it, my hands had other thoughts and nothing turned out the way I wanted it to. But I’m exceptionally pleased with this piece. The text inside reads: Love can sometimes be magic.

But Magic can sometimes just

be an illusion.

I’ve done prints of the text before but I loved it so much that i decided to use it for the book too. Let me know your thoughts on it, I’d love to know what you think if you could spare the time.

Take care,

Anthropomorphic Creatures

  

Hello!! Thought i’d get back on here and share some weird little characters with you. These were actually done in my first and second year of uni but I didn’t want to keep them cooped up in my portfolio, so here they are. My image of the Raven is based on the poem by Edgar Allen Poe. I wanted him to be this really quite narcissistic character, and I looked toward the fashion of Tom Ford for the outfit I put him in. I loved the ad campaign that Ford did with Nicholas Hoult wearing the blue velvet tuxedo jacket.
