Blinding - Graphic Novel

A small section of my graphic novel I will be submitting for my minor project based upon music imagery. This is an on-going project that i will complete at a later date but i'm happy with the feel and style it is progressing towards. 
It is intended to be projected onto a large wall in order for the audience to be full immersed in the experience.

Today I was procrastinating over tumblr and found someone who's practically taken my owl print and stuck it on what appears to be a penguins body with a case of identity crisis. 
How original...

Christmas creations

I was going to get started on my christmas cards today but I went to get red and green lino paint but they didn't have any so i've made christmas tags instead.

Acetate Acetate

Been trying to show how i would like my graphic novel to look in terms of a projection film made up of layers of my own illustrations. I'm starting work on it this Tuesday so i'm hoping all will go to plan in terms of how i'm imagining it to look.

I've printed my scanned images onto acetate then re-scaned them and i really like the vibrant colour and the way the layers work so well. This is a perfect representation of how i want my projected graphic novel to look so you are guided through the song 'Blinding' with flickering images, movement and different layers.

Home Run

I'm almost finished(YAY) just need to add text, scan it and create the book.

Emergency cup of green tea

I found a really great image of a girl by Eduardo Recife, really like the presence and dreamy feel.

Progress so far.

The waking world

Continuation of my graphic novel based upon the song 'Blinding' by Florence + the Machine. 
The book once finished is intended to work with the song to be read as you listen to it.

That time of year again.

It's that time of year again when I start making christmas. 
This year i'm thinking of going for lino cut deer prints. Obviously black and pink aren't appropriate christmas colours(i'll sort that out some time soon) I was just trying out the prints to see how they looked. I love Christmas.

'Blinding' work continued.

The beginnings of my graphic novel based upon song imagery for the song Blinding by Florence and the Machine. 
I was having trouble getting my ideas onto paper and i think the combination of stress and an approaching deadline helped me to just get on with it and it seems to be going quite well.

Counting crows

I've moved away from my original song choice and decided to focus upon imagery within the song Blinding by Florence + the Machine. 
I've managed to brainstorm a set of images that works well for about the first 18 seconds of the begining of the song and I think it works out quite well in relation to atmosphere and meaning. 
Any comments are welcome.
