Scotland on Sunday brief

The Scotland on Sunday recently asked us to illustrate the issue of menopause from a male perspective. My thinking behind this idea was the emotional aspect from the letter - that there was two people in the relationship but both struggling with how to deal with the issue. In particular the man trying to get through to his wife but doesnt know how to. The door was supposed to be a metaphor seperating them. The knocked over books and broken/slanted frame was to represent how things around them, imparticular their family life and everything around them was falling apart because of this.
The image on the left is my original which I wasn't happy with and felt it needed alot more to it so I re - did it and felt it looked alot better.
Mine wasn't picked unfortunately but always good for the experience

I'm much more of a free hand drawer but I really wanted to try out some of the techniques I've learnt in photoshop lately on one of my 20 min pics. See what it's like when I try outwith my usual style. Don't think it turned out too badly considering. What do you think?

20 minute diary pics

Every Wednesday in class we have the chance to draw something that has happened to us during our week. Usually I find it quite a challenge to get it all done in time but I think I'm getting better (hopefully!). These are a selection of pictures i've done over the summmer and since we've come back to college.

Zoo posters

3 zoo posters I created for my graded unit. Each poster was to represent conservation, education and appeal as a visitor attraction. Idid this by using the animals and them calling out to people for different things. Penguin - appealing as a visitor attraction, Lion - Conservation and the kookaburra - education

Song lyric project

Based on the song lyrics by coldplay " You belong with me, not swallowed in the sea"

The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe poster

 For college we had to base 3 posters - portrait, objects and buildings on a play. I chose The lion, The witch and these are my final 3 posters which I'm very happy with.
