Testing lino printing on moleskine notebooks. It’s not perfect, but any tips or feedback would be appreciated! Also, sorry for terrible photo!

These are my final outcomes for our project called "The Dogs". We had to create 6 images (not showing the last one, it's terrible even if the tutors didn't agree!) using different techniques based on the subject matter of dogs.The first one is my absolute favourite, though I like the following two as well. All done in mixed media. Tutors seemed happy and called it a great set, which is a pretty good start to the year if you ask me :) Hopefully more to come soon!

A page form my visual journal summer project.
In response to the word "untamed"- got the idea partially from looking at my parents' garden when I was at home (sorry mum!).
I know, I'm rubbish, I've not updated this blog in a while. Unfortunately, blogger hasn't been working too well on my laptop or phone recently, but I appear to have fixed the problem so it's update time :)
Here's the finished illustration, which is now available in my society6 shop here, if anyone is interested!
More to come shortly.

An update of sorts on a piece I started a few months back, think I posted an early WIP pic.Still a WIP, but getting less and less of a WIP every time I mess with it. I think the lines need to go, just not working with the rest of it.

For those of you that a) have facebook, b) care about liking pages and c) care about my work enough, I now have a (currently very empty looking- I'm working on it) facebook page for you all to like. So if you're actually interested, then click here and like away!
In other news, I have changed my blog a little, and am currently in the process of doing some more work, as well as coughing and wanting to die a little instead of being out in the lovely sunshine....
oh what an exciting life I lead! :)
A Small sample of my traffic warden research. Not sure it was insanely thrilling, but I like how my drawings turned out. :)

Boxing research- I did quite a lot of research on boxing, which was really super fun. Honestly. Lucky for me, there was a boxing match on that my boyfriend wanted to watch seeing as he quite likes boxing, so I got to do some line drawings based on that. Then watched some female boxing, which was also super fun. Actually quite enjoyed drawing them, even if I’m not all that interested in boxing…
Anyways, have a load of sketchbook rubbish.
Two of my professions characters- traffic warden and boxer. Bus driver won’t fit on the scanner. Plus I’m not happy with it so you get that another day. Not my usual style, but tutors seemed reasonably happy with them. Apparently I’m confident. That’s a compliment I don’t usually get on my work, so I guess that’s a good thing?
Watercolour, water soluble pastel, pastel and ink.

Done whilst very very stressed. I forgot I knew how to art.
Watercolours, water soluble wax pastel, ink and a teeny bit of pencil.
More soon, had a productive week.

These are just some photos of my studio space- the first is my university studio space. It's a bit empty at the moment cuz we've just had an assessment, but it's pretty cute. The bottom two are my attached studio in my bedroom at my house :) I've organised the room so I have plenty of wall space for my work. I'm really enjoying having a little studio to work in, I feel a lot more relaxed and into my work when I have a dedicated space. Anyway, thought you might like the little look at the spaces where I make my art :)
Sorry, the photo is awful as the piece is just that bit too big for my A4 scanner, but here is the final I did for the "Extra Arm" piece a while back. Tutors seemed very happy with it, especially the hand drawn type. Bottom image had tutors in stitches... wasn't meant to be funny really, but apparently they have dirty minds! But nevermind, it's better than them being unhappy with it haha. Done in ink, watercolour, acrylic paint, pen, pastel and pencil. Was quite happy with it in the end, definitely one of my better pieces of work :)
