minor project.

This is an image from my minor project, one of my finished designs, a butterfly repeat for fashion fabrics printing digitally onto silk. This is one of my favourites from the collection as i really like creating repeat patterns from my drawings. Although i really wanted this design in black and white these blues work nicely instead.

Rolls and rolls.

By the end of this project im going to have seen enough rolls of paper to last a life time, they just seem to stack up and they breed. well. that might be a bit of an over reaction. at least my designs look awesome when I have printed them into 2 metre lengths. It excites me a little to think that I could actually paper walls with them right now! :D

Damien Hirst

I went to Bowes Museum for some research a few months back and the Damien Hirst exhibition was on with the skull masks and butterflies, the butterflies were really nice and linked in with my own theme nicely but I didnt think much of his sparkly skulls to be honest. I think I prefer his mutilated animals. :)

photobooks are evil.

I have ordered myself a photobook full of imagery from my 3 years with Cleveland College of Art and Design. I now know how stressful it can be making a book, and all I had to do was drag and drop and re size. Well when it finally arrives it better be good. I'm quite looking forward to seeing my work in a book actually even if it is one I have created myself. :)


Ok. I didnt want my project to involve florals, but I guess ones that look a little less floral like are more interesting and fit in with my project alot more. Spider Orchids. Quite fancy!
