Rooftops, railway, rest. Tickets please, train tracks and total standstill. Reading, rain and reports.

Had a few discussions about free writing. It’s a process. It turns the internal, daily thought processes into something physical. Something tangible. Food for thought on a daily basis. Accessible memories and moments in time. Much like photographs of a person. I will begin to share these short writings under my ‘Sketchbook’ page to quench curious […]
Automatic drawings of forks. Reflecting on my style; repetition, observation, space, linear.
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A paid opportunity, to design a logo for a charity, arose earlier this month and it is the perfect brief for my style of work.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_single_image image=”1498″ img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The charity is based in Macau, China and is called ‘Trinity’; they were looking for a simple, graphic to represent their charity in the future.

We had a group crit last week and Ingrid (mentioned in the previous post) said that she thought my automatic drawings were the strongest. That it looked like I had let go and lost control a little. So with this in mind I felt quite comfortable in the V&A last night drawing from some pieces […]
My project is in it’s first stage of drawing. I’ve asked people to bring in various shapes and colours of fungi that they see so that I have more of a variety. But here is what I have done so far! Yes, I have been learning about William Morris. These were some quotations I found […]
I bought a bunch of red carnations yesterday; flowers are such a big inspiration to me. Recently, I have discovered that the reason behind this is unknown to me. But every time I make the effort to sit down and look at each petal it reminds me of why I like drawing them so much.
I’ve decided to take a few photographs that summarise how the project is going + what I have been up to. It’s been quite fun deciding what to document and show. It’s a way of showing you “behind-the-scenes” rather than simply the outcomes. It’s been a week for progression, lino printing, experimenting, being curious, pushing […]
Working from primary sources for my new live project. Here’s a sneak peak into the sorts of things I’m up to. Lots more to tell you about soon. As you can see, my inspiration is flowers. The patterns were designed with metal casting in mind but I have decided to push these into different directions; […]
I’ve been doing some experimentation with colour, tone + shape based on flowers: Our Bentall’s Centre Live Project was launched this week and we have to begin thinking about subject matter that motivates us. This is what this sketchbook work will contribute to. The Live Project will allow us to make products to show and […]
