It's been a while

Its been a few months since I last posted something here. Well to be honest I couldent be bothered I thought I might as well keep all my work in one place hence this post.

Well at the moment Im doing a project about cats. Im really saddend by people mistreating and neglecting animals and I really do support the work being done by rehoming organisations that pick up these cats off the street or from their doorstep and look after them and find them new homes. What I hope to do for my project is promote the work these oranisations do through my Illustration.

I hope to make a series of books each about a different cat that I met a the homes and their true individual story.

These are some photos that I took at the homes I visited:












I went to Cats protection twice and met some lovely cats, some have since been rehomed. Mick, Tobias, Maggie, Bert and Ernie have all been homed. Im soo happy for them and I hope their new owners take care of them. To see the rest of the photos click here and here




Potchi and Tyson


Since my visit Goldilocks has been rehomed. To see the rest of the photos click here

Self initiated piece and sketches

Final banner

At the top is the final banner and below are some sketches i did of different cultures. I did plan to create a book with a narrative written by myself but changed my mind as I wanted to try something new. Instead I created a banner made up of all my cultural drawings. I made it as bright colourful and expressive as I could. I would like it to be displayed where anyone can see it. And It could even be used in the 2012 Olympics which is the perfect time were all nations come together in London.

Artist Inspiration

I have really struggled with this project I have no idea why. I think it was because I had a lack of inspiration, I have found it really hard to get into it and I have found that I really havent enjoyed it, even though i really tryed to I havent. So I had a look at these artists for some inspiration.

Siri Weber Feeney

I loved this illustrator's work because I loved how she always combines many cultures in her illustrations. I really like the style of her illustrations they have a very warm feel about them.

Anne Sibley O'Brien

I recognised this work straight away. I used to read the Jamaica books when I was young, looking back at these beautiful illustrations really brought the memories back.

Cecilia Carlstedt

I looked at Cecilia's work because I just love her illustration tecnique, I came across her work from a book in the library called "Fashion Wonderland" I would have kept hold of that book for longer if I could. I love how her illustrations are very free and have an unfinished look to them, I tryed to adopt this into my illustrations as, I always work very detailed but this technique would help me loosen up and get my illustrations done quickly.

Tom Bagshaw

Although I didnt plan to create my whole piece digitally I just ha dot look at this guy's work I just love the mix of realistic and unrealitic combined. the detail he captures in the face hair and arm is beautiful and then I love how he paints the reast in an unrealistic style but yet it works well. I also found his work in the book "Fashion Wonderland" That book is full of inspiration.
