Im at University now :D

I'm finally at University studying Illustration in Portsmouth, just coming to end of the first term and Ive found it to be very split, the first half was a nightmare with the first project not going very well, while the second half was much better and went very well.

I don't have anything to show from the first project but to be honest I wasn't very happy with the end result, it was all very rushed, I wish I had done better.

I do however have the final outcome of my second project, which was a lot of fun and enjoyed it a lot :) it was a book cover project where we had to choose a book from the Penguin Classics collection and design a new cover for it, so I chose 'Rudyard Kipling's - The Jungle Book' and here is the outcome :)

Well better late than never I supose haha :)

Well I finished the Foundation Diploma in Art, Design & Media in June and am now ready waiting for September to come around, when I am finally off to University to study illustration. I'm so excited and nervous at the same time in anticipation of what I will get to do on the course.

But as for what has happened since my last post well skipping my pathway which didn't go so well in my opinion since I only passed it at level 3, the only good thing that came out of it that I was able to learn from it and improve for my confirmatory.

Overall I think my Confirmatory went brilliantly, I couldn't have been happier with the end result though of course there is always room for improvement. This project was informed by a brief that was set by Bristol UWE one of my university choices which ask me to look at the three most significant/important influences on my life so far. I chose to expand on this for my confirmatory as it was a project that had the most promise and would allow me to do a variety of different things with it. In this project I looked a t my childhood, my teens up until now in the present. These illustrations were going to follow the same formatted size but I soon found that had to change and they adopted a variety of sizes, here are the results:
