Upon return

harbour town 2017

If you follow me on social media you may know that I have been exploring the East Coast of America for the past 10 days, one of the places that particularly inspired me was Harbour Town Marina of Hilton Head Island. As the sun was setting the scene was just beautiful so I decided to create an illustration to commemorate my travels there.

Circles in the sand.

A flipbook animation, drawing in black and white using black pen. It depicts a small yet memorable moment for me whilst away with friends of us drawing circles in the sand with our feet. This piece captures a moment in time, now for anyone to see.

A video clip of this flipbook is yet to come.

The 3rd and Final Year

I am now coming into my 3rd and final year of my illustration degree and am kicking it off with a summer project brief in which I must create a flip book animation. As a quick starting point I created this basic dot animation of 70 frames (the same number of images required for the flip book) to get back into the groove of animated illustration and to help remind myself of how to use photoshop to create an animation.

Blues Print

2 musicians final After experimenting on Photoshop with my illustrations throughout this unit, for my zine to showcase my work, I created this illustration. To make this piece I combined the characters from my first final piece of a series of three blues musicians into one image, I feel the composition of this piece works really well and fills the page nicely. The minimal colour palette helps to keep the viewers focus on the composition and subject matter of the image which I feel is the focal point. I have decided to add this illustration as a secondary final piece for the exhibition unit in my portfolio as I feel it shows development from my previous final piece and overall I feel is more successful.
