Book of Portraits Part 20: Family Members V

Some more drawings based upon old family photos, this time mainly consisting of a family wedding. I think that the four full body images work the best out of this set and they are my favourite, mostly due to the use of ink for the body/clothing, something which I think always works best with these drawings and compliments the pencil work nicely. I got to work with interesting and challenging expressions and poses this time which is great as I definitely need more practice with expression in my work.

St Davids and Camping Trip

In June me and a few friends had a camping trip near St Davids and I thought I would share some photos of the trip as I am currently working on images based on the photographs I took. It took my a while to post these as I have had trouble transfering the images from my phone to my computer but everything is fine now. As I am currently thinking of projects to do I am also thinking of things I can draw daily and these photos have been a great help as I really want to improve on drawing landscapes and backgrounds, and this trip provided amazing scenery, from the coastal walks to the Cathedral. I will hopefully post any images I make based upon these photos soon.

CSAD Summer Exhibition 2015

I have been meaning to post about this for awhile but haven’t been able to sort out the pictures I took of the event until now. This is what I exhibited as part of my degree in the illustration degree show at Cardiff School of Art and Design which we titled ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors’. I exhibited my two books at the show as well as several prints of my work and I really enjoyed the show and gained experience in displaying my work for an exhibition. The show as a whole was amazing to see as all of the work was very varied and it was great to see the final outcome of everyone’s work.
