Fish 'n' Chips!

Hello everyone! Well it's hot as hell here in London, so I have been out of doors enjoying the sunshine the last few days (well if not now, when can you? This is England after all...)

It's been a strange couple of weeks indeed, having to face up to being a responsible adult after so long of being a student, and actually having a bit of spare time after so long of having no life besides uni. The posts have been a little thin lately because I've been having a bit of a breather, but today I feel rested and ready to start work again, hoorah!

We Brits are famed for our fish 'n' chips. Below are some kinds of fish typically served with chips in Britain (from top: whiting, hake, bull huss, pollock, haddock, cod) and a large scale painting of a chippy counter. These were originally created as a piece to be hung on the wall at our degree show, but it was a bit too big. Instead they have gone into my portfolio for the D&AD show, which for anyone who doesn't know is a big trade show for illustrators, designers, advertisers and art directors.

I'm thinking the fish could be used to make some cute cards of some kind as well....

Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts and peace out! xxx

End of degree show... real world here we come!

Last Thursday was our much anticipated end of degree show, an opportunity to showcase our talent and celebrate everyone's hard work.  The private view was a success with a great turnout, despite the ill-timed tube strike!  I decided to put my pies up, and even made some things to sell on the merchandise stand.  Here are some photos for anyone who wasn't able to make it.  

Oh I almost forgot, you can see work by the people in the show at this website.

Logo design

Hi folks, long time no see!  Sorry about aforementioned absence from the blogosphere, I've been prepping for our upcoming show this Thursday and have been busy making merchandise and lots of exciting new work that will be on here very soon (promise!)  Please drop on by at the University of Westminster campus at Marylebone in London to come have a look, it's on over the weekend too.  

A mini project that I have been working on is the above, a logo for my friend David's dance company, 'Collisions Dance', which will be performing at this years Edinburgh festival.  You can get to their facebook page by following this link (though you have to be signed in to facebook, of course).

Take care my lovelies, chat soon!
