Create an original cover illustration for Little White Lies magazine, depicting the main character of one of our five favourite films of 2011:

Black Swan,
The Tree of Life,

I chose 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' for my design. Not sure whether to enter it or not.

Animation Elective - Topography

video
This is my work so far for an animation unit on topography. I have taken it in a different direction because:
animation = time based medium
time + topography = journey
topography animation = journey
Anyway I decided to look at a spiritual journey as well as a physical one which is a martial art that I do called Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. I am also exploring line work because topography/maps focus on this. An older meaning for topography is also study of culture in a place, and I find it interesting having this japanese martial art being taught in the UK

Inception!

No not the film, rather a beginning. Welcome to my new blog which will follow my work and practice through illustration and related fields. This hopefully be a place to show what I'm up to at the moment, and also a place to discuss and critique my work. Be as harsh or as nice as you like (don't worry, I can take it either way).
I am currently studying illustration at university so we can see if my practice improves somewhat over the next few years. So lets get going, I'll post again soon.
