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.
With Summer being half way through, and the sun slowly shying away, I have recently started a new job at NHM http://www.nhm.ac.uk/, and I am SO excited to use my work perks, starting with free entry to all paid exhibitions in London as well as specific museums out of London.With this fabulous pass, I plan to attend as many museums/galleries as possibles, and journal my visits, including sketches and photographs for the public to see.It may not be the most interesting of posts, but I will try to keep it visually and verbally exciting in hope.
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.
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.
A series of photographs taken for a project titled Lost in...
Referring closely to the lost sensation I feel when thinking about my artwork and current studies and where this will lead. A very quick set of images and test through pshop. More to show when I feel more pleased with results.
