(Belated) Illustration Friday: Stripes

Been so busy with college work I finally got round to finishing my first illustration friday topic. First thing that came to mind from the subject "stripes" was a zebra but tried to find a way to make it a bit more interesting.

New 20 minute diary pics

More 20 minute diary pics I've done in class from something that's happened in my week. The past weeks have included some interesting things - drawing childhood toys (my little pony), new headphones, snowing on halloween with my family in the states, my birthday on the coolest date of the year (11/11/11) and random dreams (that I have alot!) of snakes biting me and the venom going into my veins and also my tutor glen cracking his knuckles.
I would upload these on their own and explain them every week but because they're so small I think they look a bit lonely all by themselves. I think they look much better grouped together really.
Well that's all for now folks :)

Christmas card print

I did this print earlier this year as part of 1st year but I think it would make a good christmas card this year. It was the first time I'd ever tried lino printing and I think it worked out pretty well. Turns out although it's quite fiddly (and your likely to cut yourself which I did) I quite like it!

Remixing music

So here's a little bit of what I've been busy working away at college. For a group project we were asked to create a campaign to show how re-mixing, re-recording etc music was ruining original music. My very lovely group decided to go with my idea of "Losing Soul Music". Which basically describes how remixes take away what original music is truely about (Its purpose) and therefore loses its soul. Each of us came up with an idea of how a musical instrument could lose its soul (which was a very complicated process but we persevered and got there in the end!). Mine was disappearing, Second poster was dripping colour and lastly a broken instrument.
These are pictures of from my poster. I created a collage of different live music flyers and tickets I found and cut out what I thought was an iconic symbol of music (the guitar) from this. My message was trying to show that re -mixing has taken away the soul of orginal, live music, and therefore nothing left at all.
