A selection of images taken from two photographers. One from the UELSU team, and my personal favourite photographer FrogPumpkin More details below.

20/09/2015 - Hired for the day to draw portraiture of new and returning students, I found myself enjoying the day much more than anticipated. Originally stressing with style, technique and every other thing I could think of, I decided to focus on simplicity.
Giving the visitor a choice in colour of paper and pen, I drew quick outline sketches of body shapes, clothing and hair. No facial detail. 2-4 minutes depending on conversation and enjoyment of the image. And the result was a recognizable drawing of the person sitting before me, and their reactions was almost always positive.

Honestly, what a great fun bunch of students and more. Considering I completed my degree at UEL this June 2015, I was happy to return and see familiar faces whilst also being on a different side of freshers.
These photographs are great, and this was a great push in the right direction of possible opportunities for the future.

Supporting our friend at his very first fashion show. INTERLACED 2015. His website below...

Marking the end of my Summer, a bright colourful way to go. The show infused tech and fashion together. Belts that charge your phone, dresses that light the runway, zips that make music. The tech/dress is endless. Was an interesting catwalk in the heart of East London, just off Bricklane.
Look forward to future invitations and documentation. So far I documented the evening via Snapchat, Instagram, Tumblr... and now Blogger.

A very fun educational day. Free entry, Riding mostly solo I went to visit as many exhibits as the day allowed. All images above are a documentation of my day, taken my myself. Posted onto Blogger and Tumblr 
Very difficult to pin point a favourite of the day, I encourage everyone reading to visit these before time runs out. Fabulous, particularly the staircase.

Urges to sketch. Fashion sketch to be precise..
Following my visit to the Alexander McQueen exhibit at the V&A, I was amazed.
It was like walking into McQueen's Cabinet of curiosities... his works are so abstract yet once I witnessed the pieces on display, I am now able to recognize his style and it's uniqueness elsewhere.
I can see where others are inspired by him.
Not to mention myself.
I was left with the desire to design, draw, fashion, just play about. And even know the beginner sketches above are very simple and infantile I find them cute and likable. Looking forward to playing more and including colour and animation.
Thank you McQueen.

Some on my list are..
-Tate (All in UK)

An invite to all. The hard work. The blood, sweat and tears is finally to be shown here.
This Thursday 21st May 2015.
5pm - 9pm

This is what hard work and grafting looks like. 2 WEEKS of clearing, painting and scrubbing at UEL.
These are pictures from preparing for our final degree show, and dare I say it has been the most stressful and fun time of the 3 years. We as a year group became unified, we laughed and cried together, they don't call it third year for no reason. It is without a doubt my hardest year, the most difficult term, and the most sleep depriving finals I have ever had to hand in. But we get through it with a little help from our friends... and my handsome wonderful partner, and some laughter ofcourse.

Playing with perspective...
From large..
To small...

Behind the scenes. A side project I've been working on for a little while. Having created a painting of the tree of directions to accompany my fictional short story, I decided to follow the recent trend and make 2D, into 3D. Bringing the painting to life as you see below. With this sculptural tree I've been doing test perspective shots and still have quite a bit to do.

THE "Lost in.." PODCAST: To anyone that has recently followed my instagram or snapchat, I have attempted to undergo the process of creating and producing a very new podcast.
With the title being "Lost in..." the podcast is a series of discussions with students to talk about what areas in life we may feel lost in. (Lost in Love, Lost in career, Lost in work, in tech, in art etc)
The theme will vary every week/episode, depending on interests and trends.

On the 19th March, We got together found a room and created the very first test episode.
I call it the pilot episode.
A few things went wrong. We had a dodgy table that creaked a lot.
We had bad acoustics in the room that caused us to echo. And the discussion on audio is not as interesting as when we are recording it. Personally I really enjoyed the process and hoped it would sound better. I am unsure if an episode 2 will happen, but I do have a video version of the pilot ep that I may also upload soon.

Above is a snapshot of our set up, and below is the link to the very first episode.
With a little patience and feedback welcomed, I hope you enjoy.
