Breastfeeding sticker

I designed a sticker just after Christmas for West Lindsey District Council to promote breastfeeding in cafe's and such. The stickers would be stuck in the cafe windows for all to see! My design wasn't chosen but now I have decided to modify it, just because. Since I made the last sticker I've become a lot more proficient on photoshop which for this type of project has helped me endlessly!

Glastonbury t-shirts!

We've just got a competition through to design a t-shirt for Glastonbury 2010, to be distributed at the festival. I decided creating my design in a million colours would be my best bet, and settled on the green, blue and pink ones. I like the 'splatty' way those colours turned out, the others look a little too neat, plus the pink, blue and green are the brightest and theres no place for lame colours at a festival!

O2 Arena

A poster design for the O2 Arena, advertising family friendliness. My favourite is the blue version, but the version at the top was my first ever complete piece using Photoshop so although it might not be particularly stylish it does hold a special place in my heart!

London Transport poster

This is a competition poster for London Transport aiming to advertise the environmental and recreational benefits of cycling in London. I think I'm probably going to do a bit more work on this, fiddle around with colour and composition and the like but I thought I'd put it up anyway because I am kinda proud of it!

Feel Good Drinks

This is my entry for the Feel Good Drinks YCN Competition. It's the first time I've properly used photoshop and not wanted to throw it out of the window in a fit of rage so I'm chalking this up as a success even if I don't get anywhere near winning!

To Kill A Mockingbird

These two pieces are for my Negotiated Project. They are ideas for illustrating each of the four main characters in Harper Lee's novel To Kill A Mockingbird, these two being Scout Finch and Tom Robinson. They are still only ideas but I'm really liking the way they have turned out and will most likely be using this format for the final work.

More Wasteland final pieces!

"The rattle of Bones and chuckles spread from ear to ear", this took me quite a while! It's suprising how long hand painting lettering can take, but i think it's worth it.

"The typist home at teatime", it was tough doing the text on this one, making it look like splodgy typewriter print by using a fineliner. Im hoping I pulled it off.

"Put out the cat, and..."

This is a page for a childrens book, the whole class was given a sentence each and had to create their illustration around it. However there were certain rules, which were that the character had to have the stripy top and red converse trainers, and the background had to be in black and white. Other than that "Sam" could be any character you wanted him/her to be.

Aspects of Love

Another editorail illustration! Our tutors do like these. This is for an article on what parents do after their children have left home to go to university, so i focussed on the parents spending their savings travelling the world


An editorial illustration for an article in a newspaper on unnecessary noise in everyday life

A couple of Wasteland final pieces

Two of the final pieces iv created for my Wasteland project, a few more are going to arrive later!
