Here's my entry for this years Puffin Design competition, the book cover that was to be designed this was "The Wind In The Willows". The idea behind my cover was to base it all on Toad Hall, after researching a few cover's I noticed that they were all based on either the river bank or inside the woods, and I wanted to do something different this time round.And I quite liked the fact that the characters were to be in some sort of picture frame, thus stating that the appearance of the cover was based on the picture wall in Toad Hall.

Today we had a guest lecture in the form of Brian Froud, who is mostly known for his amazing life like Faeries, and art work for films such as Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal" and "Labyrinth". He showed us a portfolio of his work, which was amazing. During the talk Brian told us how he got into the fantasy art world, and told us some great tips, one that'll stick in my mind is "Never listen to your tutors".
This lecture was great for me, as fantasy art is an area that I am heavily influenced in and in love with.

I found this after rummaging around my old PC and was quite surprised to find this. Anyway this piece was created during a editorial project we did during my second year, if your a Muse fan you can see that the album cover Absolution heavily inspired this piece (and its one of my all time favourite albums). The article was about how people can trace and track terrorists, fugitives, criminals were now thanks to their shadows and the way they walked, the title of this article is called "Betrayed by your shadow", this was quite a fun article to do, may keep this in mind when I'm looking for work after education.

Couple of weeks back I was given a commission by a local music recording studio to design a logo for them. Thankfully it was accepted and was published and is still being used by the studio, and now thanks to the the studio they have recently sent me some pictures of my design being used on numerous items, such as mouse matts, car adverts, and business cards here are a few picture of the items, and below is a link to the facebook page of said music studio, if anyone out there reading this post is interested in their music being recorded and produced.
