The Professor's Cunning Plan and Terrence's Top Hat

I doodled these illustrations in class and decided to develop them. I like their cutesy style and fly moustaches!

Northward Bound

These illustrations were inspired by Kate Wilson and Brett Ryder. I love Wilson's use of text, aged paper and cute, nostalgic drawing style. I like how Ryder references the past and see similarities in our styles.

My own drawing is a flying machine created in my imagination with a narrative aspect which is a feature I want to include in my work.

Hoardings Project

Students of Manchester Art School are collaborating with Ian Anderson of Designers Republic to have their images on the hoardings surrounding the new campus building while it is being built. We have been invited to have our pictures taken and digitally alter them to represent who we are as a designer.

Unfortunately my original photograph was disgusting, so lots of Photoshop to fix it! It isn't completely done yet and I might change it all together!

I've made myself into a drawing and done some textile design using more of my own illustrations and textures. It is about my handmade/ digital aesthetic which I think sums me up as a designer!

I'm just popping to Sainsbury's in my Flying Machine

I have applied colour to my pencil drawing. I have used minimal colours as the cross hatching adds depth of colour but have used highlights for a 3 dimensional effect.

I really want to go on an outing in one of these!

Fantasy Flying Machine Drawing

A pencil sketch of a 1783 fantasy flying machine. I am going to work on it digitally and have a little experiment and will post my results.

Up, up and away!

Again, still not complete but this is my drawing of a Victorian Flying Machine using a combination of traditional and digital techniques.
