Taking inspiration from the colours and style of posters at the fabulous Red Star Over Russia exhibition at the Tate Modern. This is A2 made in Photoshop (Elements - Ssssh, I don't have full Photoshop at home) Am a complete newb to Photoshop, it takes me way to long to do anything on it but I think I'm finally starting to pick up some bits. Was super proud of this one . . . Don't think the digital artists have anything to fear 🐌 . . . . . . . #photoshop #photoshopelements #posterdesign #inspiredby #redstaroverrussia
Book bargain of the year so far. #disney The Art of Hercules - £1.99 in a charity shop. Reduced three times. (I peeled all the stickers off for a nosey.) Got home, checked Amazon and it's £59.99 on there! Whoop whoop! Gorgeous book, lots of initial sketches and process work in there. . . . . #newbook #bargain #jammy #charityshopfind #thriftshop
My theme for this unit has changed from zombies to mummification to... My Mum's rock cakes. It's now little over a week before final hand in and I am starting from scratch. I've also found out what triggering actually means, I did it to myself and have been on a downward spiral of grief that walloped me from nowhere and it felt like I lost my Mum all over again. Only worse for some reason than the first time. . . I've always been interested in death and the darker stories and tales so I am not sure why it took till now, 10 years later to happen like this. Maybe I'm researching deeper and with more meaning than I have before? It's been suggested that I feel fraudulent and undeserving of being at uni (not wrong) and maybe that's combining to amplify things . . . I wasn't going to write this, I was going to slope back to uni and just accept I've probably failed this unit. But if nothing else the support I've received has made me realise how wonderful the people around me are and what good friends I do have within uni already. I felt stupid and ridiculous and unbelievably sad. But I want people to know, if you are feeling like this. Talk to people, tell someone, anyone. Don't struggle and feel like you're alone. (Plus I'm using Mum's rock cakes as the basis to hand SOMETHING in) . . . .
Latest library pick up for my Thursday Wetherspoons cuppa. Could this have been written just for me? I think so. . . . #cuppa #newbook #makingtime
Ghost print after I'd done chine collé on another print. I just love ghost prints - usually more than the actual print. Still playing at drypoint printing on the #xcutxpress SO MUCH FUN! . . . . #drypoint #drypointetching #zombie
DRY POINT PRINTING AT HOME!! YEAH! One officially loves the #xcutxpress There was much dancing to be had. . . Followed the brilliant, easy to follow tutorial on the @handprinteduk blog. Had to slightly adjust my numbers on the dial but my perspex may have been thicker than theirs. Overall, happy happy happy. . . #drypointetching #drypoint #wecreate
