I have always enjoyed Art from an early age. My earliest memory of this is doodling on sheets of computer paper and cutting up old Christmas cards to make new images. I enjoyed going into dadâ€™s shed and finding random materials to create masterpieces. I remember spending most of my childhood just drawing and being inspired to make and design anything and everything! This love of Art & Design has stayed with me and developed and grown and, now, I cannot imagine wanting to do anything else. I have always wanted to work within the Art and Design industry because it has always felt like the right direction for me to take.
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to study Graphic Design, Arts and Illustration. I enjoy being creative and I view Art as a natural way for me to express myself. I particularly enjoy illustrative work and how this allows me to create images in a way that I see them. I work in a figurative and detailed way and I aim to make my work expressive and visually interesting through unique and inspiring designs. I feel, from my study, experience and knowledge gained, I am beginning to develop my own style and way of working. It seems natural for me to take this to the next level.
The process invloved in creating this masterpiece. Take a random photo of some fruit, find something unconventional (I used a stick) and draw the fruit (I used ink rather than normal paint) Overlay the images in Photoshop and experiment with different colour effects such as hue and saturation.
These following posters we created with hand drawn scribbles using pencil and paper, then vectorized in illustrator. Its interesting to see the different effects and designs that can be created by using your own hand sketched scribbles and illustrations.
Experimenting with different ways to create unique digital peices of work.

Everyone knows, that to become a successful Graphic Designer, It is essential that you have the basic foundations of drawing down pat. Some of the best ideas have come from rough sketche and doodling. I decided to strengthen my skills by enrolling in an observcational drawing class. It has given my a new passion and outlook for drawing.
This is record cover was designed as a quick class task. I found some random text from a website for the title of the album and name of the band. This along with the third photo on unsplash was used to create this design.

Over the years I have exploring all kinds of different drawing mediums. From painting, charcoal, watercolours, fine point pens to graphites. I catually could not choose a favourite as I like how each individual one can be used and, when used together can bring some really interesting and unique results.
This was a really fun assessment task. We were required to choose a classic old novel and redesign the cover, this cover can be reversed into a packaged box for sending. I decided to do my own representation of â€˜LORD OF THE FLIESâ€™ in a more contemporary and less obvious portrayal of the story. I wanted to capture the audience with imagery and typography. This is what lead to the design of the cover, poster and packaging.
Splats were created using a bouncy ball and black ink. These images were scanned and manipulated in photshop.
