a m e r i c a// Chicago day one

Day One. 

Buckingham Fountain. 

 Morning walk along the marina. 

 Cloud Gate. Melissa being cute. 
 Is it a spaceship? 
 I forgot my shorts apparently. 
 The ultimate mirror selfie. 
 Sarah is excited. 
 Andy Warhol at the Chicago Art Institute. 

 I got a bit overwhelmed by these beauties. 

My favourite painting ever. 

 absolutely in awe of the incredible art works at the Chicago Art Institute. 
A large lemonade is the same size as Sarah's head. Nice one America. 

 The Magritte exhibition was beyond amazing. 

 Chicago loves straight lines. 
Late afternoon sky lines.

a r t// Goodbye Illustration Degree, final hand in.

 And it's all over! 

20 sketchbooks, 1 self promotion project, 1 written brief, 10 hand printed tshirts, 6 hand made silk scarves, 1 pair of hand painted Doc Martens, 3 hand printed tote bag, 1 photographic mood board and 1 board of exhibition photography. 
So glad that I've finally finished everything, poured so much time and energy into my final major module, I hope the outcome was worth the tears and sleepless nights!

Goodbye Swansea Met Illustration, hello big girl world.

a r t// exhibition preparations

Exhibition preparations. 
Catalogue designed and ready, invitations sent and business cards made. 

Hand made business cards using a custom rubber stamp, Indian inks and luggage tags. 
I love how they turned out, each card is unique and much more personal than the standard business card format.

a r t// scarf designs

Final designs for urban landscape surface pattern collection. 

Each pattern has been developed into a 1m x 1m design with boarder and city new, to be printed onto silk and used to create a scarf. 

 hand painted water colour and ink background, under repeat pattern of map print. 

Hand illustrated city scape, photographed with kaleidoscope lens and edited using Photoshop.

I'm really happy with how my designs have turned out, so excited to get everything printed up and finished.
