So today I didn't have a lot to do and to avoid starting packing or tidying my room I decided to do a drawing I promised my friend Kara a while back.
Kara writes a fashion blog which I only recently discovered, she does daily posts with a mix of her own style, posts about designers and celebrity trends, go have a look and follow!
I did a couple of drawings of girls in little black dresses before finding a photo of Kara on the profile page of her blog which I used as the final reference image, before adding some swirly bits and dots and turning it into a vector.
I am surprised my mac is coping with all this digital photoshop work. A few months ago it was crashing once a week and beeping crazily at me with a blank screen if I tried to do anything complicated, glad it is surviving for a bit!
For some reason these drawings look fuzzy on my screen when viewed on the blog, click on it to see it all sharp and proper!
Been in bed all day after a lovely evening at Plymouth Uni summer ball. Think I may have slight sunstroke from sitting in the sun too long yest! That mixed with a hangover means I have been exceptionally lazy today.
It took me until yesterday when I was taking my work down to realize that I was finally done for the year! I have become so much closer to all of my course friends this year, practically living in the studio at times so not seeing them every day will be odd.
Heres some photos of my wall, the shop selling peoples stuff, and some A-mazing cakes ones of the first years made!
Now I have to start organizing myself to go to America. I have a job over there as an illustration tutor and bunk councillor! I will have my own desk where the kids come over and see me if they want to do some illustration work. Am very excited, its terrifying, but I think once I get into a routine it will be awesome :)
So, i had my final assessment for year 2 today. It has been an incredibly stressful few weeks finishing everything up but I do finally feel as if I am heading in the right direction going into year 3.
We have to clear are desks before monday to make space for our end of year show and I have started to feel all sad and nostalgic again, next year it all gets serious, and I have had such good times this year with everyone I just hope it carries on :)
Pub golf with everyone tomorrow-bring on the kryptonite, we definitely deserve it!
my desk, nice caricature of me by Josh!
my happy chair! stealing him back next year for sure!
Me and Jess spent all day in letterpress today. We were printing our names and blogs onto the back of greetings cards to be sold with different illustrations on. The Letterpress studio is one of the largest in the country so we are always being told to make the most of it whilst we can use it for free!
We got excited about the pretty lines and things you could add to your type!
