Busy Bee

The live brief fortnight is now over and although I can't show my work online yet I am quite happy with what I have produced! 
I really enjoyed working for a Greetings and paper based outcome.

I have also been finishing up my final fabrics that I will be taking to Paris two weeks today (EXCITING).

Jonny Hanna & Donna Wilson @ YSP

Today I took a trip to Wakefield with Rob to visit the latest exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, by Jonny Hannah, called main street. It is Jonny's vintage inspired homage to the independent trader, and presents 2D and 3D pieces of his work.

Live Brief

This week we started our new live brief where we design 6 gift wraps and 2 gift bags in two weeks. This seems like a hell of a lot of work to me, however they told us in industry they would only have two days to do it!! 

 I have been a busy bee gathering lots of imagery and drawings through collage (surprise surprise!) and drawing with a gold pen. 
We are nearly at the end of week 1, and I am super excited to start making gift wrap, bags and tags next week :) 

New collages and colour palette

New Find!

I am back in Leeds after the Christmas break and I finally got to visit the wonderful new Fred Aldous shop. It is AMAZING. I have never visited one of these shops before, but heard a lot of good things about it and it lived up to its expectations and more.
