Had the first day of our 2 day collage project with Nick White today. We had to bring in various items such as LPs, videos, paperbacks, all with interesting imagery, to recreate. At first i found it quite hard to get into, but once i got into it i really enjoyed it. The top image is my version of the sound of music made into a video cassette cover. The image underneath is my version of the video 'Whisky Galore', but in LP format. Nick was a really funny guy with some impressive pieces. Also never knew he went to Kingston uni, i love it when we meet successful artists from our own kind aha.
I've just completed this for my best friend and her boyfriends' joint 21st pressie. The original of this is the image of them two painted with acrylic on canvas with the watercolour pattern around it. But i editing this slightly on photoshop slightly for the sake of the blog because yet again i took a bit of a bad blurry photo of it haha. I hope she doesn't look on here..
I've been given a project from my course to illustrate the book 'The Stranger' by Albert Camus which will also be entered into a competition launched by The House of Illustration and The Folio Society. I've just finished the book...it was quite a difficult read for me. And i think it's going to be a challenge to illustrate. I'll post my design ideas when i get cracking!
