Tamar Bridge Prints from the 2nd Year




These were the etchings and silkscreens I did for the Tamar Bridge back all the way to the second year. Hasn't time gone by so quickly?

More Devons Drawings of Totnes and Berry Pomeroy





These drawings are a mix of Gouache paint and chalks. I find these drawings much more of an improvement as the gouache really helps as a base colour giving the chalks more depth. I am looking at Devon Folklore for my current project. So I went to Berry Pomeroy Castle, perhaps one of the most haunted castles in England. It was a very atmospheric place to be among.

Possible Poster for Art Graduate Employment Showcase



This is one of the possible posters that is going to represent the showcase. This is a combination of two brush pen drawings both layered and worked ontop with photoshop continuing the formula of my successful New York piece for the Blanket Calender.

Drawings of Devon




For my final major project, I am drawing around many of the landscapes and buildings around Devon which could result in a either a walk/history book or a book jacket for a crime novel as many of the drawings are rather moody and atmospheric. These drawing are mainly around Totnes which have been Photoshoped. I think these drawings would look good as Silkscreens so I might do more of that later into the project.

Poem illustrations




These are illustrations for the poems of Carrington Marshall.
'Poor, poor, Casanova' and 'Schalken The Painter'
It is hard to do Metaphor's so I just took some keywords and illustrated them.
They were done with pencil, brush ink pen and photoshop.
