The Imaginary Beings Exhibition

So last weekend on the 8th October my work was included with other artist's work in an exhibition at the Devonport Guildhall in Plymouth.

The exhibition included visual art, performances, live music, video and sculpture. All of it breath taking! I am very happy to have been a part of this exhibition, and hope to be included in more like this in my future career. Here are some pictures for you to peruse, better quality scans of the artwork should be up soon.

Wu Xing Sketches

Sorry this blog has been lacking in posts recently, I have been working really hard for my final major project. But I have 5 minutes spare to show you what I've been upto. My final major project is on Wu Xing, the Chinese movements..or elements as we would call them in the Western world. There are five all together; Fire, Wood, Earth, Metal and Water. I'm doing an image for each. Each of the movements have their own things associated with them and I have have tried to include that in each image.

These are almost finished sketches:

Metal- Its heavenly creature is the White Tiger.
Water- Its heavenly creature is the Black Tortoise, which is a tortoise and a snake riding its back.
Fire- Its heavenly creature is the Vermillon Bird.

Two more to do this evening. PHEW. Alot of work and research have gone into this project so hopefully the finals will come out how I want them to!!!!
If you want to know more about Wu XIng I would highly suggest you google it, it is an extremely interesting topic.

Bristol Artists Book Event (BABE) 2011

So I was at BABE (If you don't know what BABE is I highly suggest you google it :D) this weekend on Saturday to sell some of my work that was at the event for both the Saturday and the Sunday. I had a really good time and I even managed to sell some of my work! I won't know the exact figures till tomorrow, but it has made me extremely happy to know that complete strangers like my work.

For BABE I decided to make necklaces with my illustrations in them. These took forever to make, and a lot of trial and error went into them. I even made the boxes entirely by hand and the velvet cushions on which they were presented. I also decided to put together some 'goodie bags' that contained one high quality 8 x 10 photographic print of 'Prepubescent', a postcard of 'Zara' and a keyring with one of either 'Prepubescent' or 'Zara'.

I had such a good time whilst I was there, and all the work that was at BABE was gorgeous. I definitely want to do it again in two years time, so I'll have to get the cogs turning for what I'll want to make in two years time :)

Happy New Year!!!


Well its did it creep up on me so fast?! I'm just writing to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope that it brings love, happiness and fortune.

Its been a busy year, and I know that this year is going to be even busier! I'm aware that I don't post that often so I am going to promise to post more sketches and updates on my work throughout 2011. I'm spending Christmas and New Years with my family at the moment but as soon as I return to University I'll scan in the caterpillar/girl hybrid that I did for the last project.


Well this is one of the finals I did for the first term. It didnt turn out how I wanted to, and I know I can do a lot better. I have got another final as well, the caterpillar/girl hybrid that I much prouder of, but I have not yet had a chance to scan it in.
