The Return!

Its been too long! Mainly due to me being so busy work wise and sort of a wee bit lazy at the same time. so.....since my last post a lot has happened! completed the uni degree in fine art! whad a fantastic final show. sold a little bit of work. and had a good time. it was great to see all the other departments. if i had the cash i would certanly go through another course. Illustration would be my new route as its the career i seem to be heading down.
Meanhwile since the show ive been working at Warhouse. weve managed to get the go ahead by a really wicked actor to play abit of a kick ass role in the film, i did a couple of character concepts for his role. so hopefully they gave him an idea of how badass he would be!
also i had a trip to Canterbury with writer Luke Foster for the Graphic Novel were working on. Canterbury is the Setting of the story so we had a walk through the city and locations the characters would find themselves so we took photos and drank tea..... its a fantastic city.comes straight out of a Harry Potter book, possibly hope to find myself living there in the future!.
Sketches have started with the characters of the Novel so getting along with that. so i'll have some of the designs up when i get some better stuff to show for it.
And finally last week Me and my partner in crime, Miss Trinder wentt along to see a private view of artist Justin Mortimer in london. that was a great show, me and laura had already been shown most of the work in the show when we visited his studio a few months back. but it was quite different to see his work fully displayed in a nice little space. we met Justin there amongst the crowd, we also met his studio neighbour Phil Hale he also remebered us from our studio visit so it was a prity relaxed atmosphere having already known them and had plenty to talk about.

So from here on out i'm on my own. a fully fledged artist! its been hard i must admit to get along without a pre planned structure. well until just now realising i should set myself one!
Justin warned me about this stage being the hardest part of graduating. but i know what i have to do and i do have alot to get along with! so shoudl have some progress to show very soon!
