Moved away from my usual pencil sketch style today and thought i'd have a go at illustrating with coloured pencils.

This morning i took a trip into town to venture into the (too)many charity shops my town has to offer in search of old maps,papers,books that i could cut up and use in my sketchbooks.
I came across this map book and even though it's not something i'm going to read I was captivated by the way in which it was put together.
All a bit geeky really but i don't feel like i can rip the pages out and cut this book up. Maybe i'll just leave it as it is:)

I have recently been facing the 'hit a brick wall' scenario in my current graphics brief at uni based upon personal territory.
I had been focussing on signage and the way in which our journeys and territory are governed by these rules and road markings however, today after a discussion with my lecturer I decided to scale it down and focus on something closer to my heart.
I have now decided to focus upon my personal territory as a graphic designer and the spaces i work in and the nature of the way i position things.
BRAINWAVE: I got my mums sewing machine out and started experimenting with outlining and markings as i feel most comfortable when working in a handmade style.
So we could finally be onto something and this mountain of a brief could slowly be progressing forward:)
