I have always loved cats, maybe it was growing up with all my Aunties and Uncles who all had 2 or 3 cats each. When studying them. Their faces show so much feeling in such a small expression.

HND 'The Bloody Chamber' Sketchbook ideas

HND 'The bloody chamber' book illustration competition

Every year there is a competition to create a series of illustrations for a book. I decided to enter it back in March 2012. This year it was for the book, 'The Bloody Chambers', a selection of adult version fairytales. We were to illustrate from three stories with a binding for the entire book. The stories were, 'The Bloody Chamber', 'Puss-in-Boots' and 'The Company of Wolves'. I really enjoyed creating these images, although i didn't win the competition it was exciting entering and thinking up ideas. Hope you enjoy :)

HND illustration for a Article about the affects of the 9/11

At the start of my HND second year we were to create a picture for an article about the affects of the 9/11. I wanted this to show what every person felt after the horrific tragedy of this day, so i created an image that showed a boy carrying everything that happened on that day and afterwards. He would be carrying the burden of the 9/11.

HND Graded unit sketchbook 'Bee'

So there was a lot to consider and ideas and such when creating my animation. Here are a few of the pages from my sketchbook. :)

HND Graded unit 'Bee animation'

So for my final Graded unit project I decided to do the brief, 'Moving', To create a animation for  'Channel four'. I decided to write a story about a bee. These are some of the Final Images.  Because of this brief i got a final A pass for my HND and the highest mark in my class. So very pleased!  Enjoy :)
