Baby put on heart shaped sunglasses

Typographic illustration I made, Inspired by the song 'Diet Mountain Dew' by Lana Del Rey.

Pick Me Up

A few things I picked up along the way round.

 Somerset House looking beautiful in the sunshine.
Quick sketch I did whilst sitting out in the sun.

Yesterday I went to the annual Pick Me Up graphic art fair where they showcase the work of many respected and talented graphic artist covering a range of different medias. 

This year was very much print based compared to when I went two years previous where it was mostly all illustration. 

On leaving i felt very much inspired and reflected on the fact I'm just a small fish in a big ocean of other talented artists, graphic designers, illustrators e.t.c. Very scary when you think about it....

Work that stood out for me was animal/self portrait illustrations by Niki pilkinton and typographic illustrator Yuko Michishita.

Film is the new digital?

Some examples of my Lomo photos I recently got developed.
This was my first experience at using a Lomo film camera and I'm quite happy with how some of the photos have come out. I need to work on exposure as many came out far too dark.
practice makes perfect I guess.

Dale Farm eviction film

This is my final piece for my uni brief about the eviction of Dale Farm residents.
I feel there is room for development as it appears slightly rough round the edges and there are areas I feel could be improved. It's not a style or format I have worked with before but I feel my illustrations have helped to create an atmosphere along with the use of audio 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack.
