I've framed the initial 3D character concepts I made and they will hopefully be displayed by Wednesday. They will be displayed at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design near the Vis Com office! Check it out if you're about!

So the past two days I've really concentrated on my children's book idea. Here are the characters I have designed so far..I'm rather chuffed with them actually! There's probably not a lot I will change when I get round to producing the finished book; just neat them up and alter positions if needed! I hope I've communicated the personality of the characters..any feedback is welcome :)

As part of my final uni project, I'm collaborating with my friend Luke who studies Interior Design/Architecture at Leeds College of Art. Basically He's redesigning the old Salem Church building in Leeds and turning it into a theatre. The aim of the venue would be to act as a platform for emerging and well-known artists to showcase their talents, much like old vaudeville shows. Artists could include singers and musicians, comedians, dancers etc..mostly avante-garde styles that you wouldn't necessarily normally see.
Anyway..I've been asked to produce a poster and flyers to advertise a potential event at the venue to help back up the design. I'm in love with this era of entertainment and victorian advertising so the posters will be heavily influenced by this. As I love to work in 3D, my initial idea is to create a piece that looks similar to victorian puppet theatres:
Here are my rough sketches!
Very excited about this project!

I've just started working on the YCN brief set by Triumph; to design a piece of communication that promotes their bra fitting service. I'm actually loving this brief!
This is just a quick mess around with an initial idea for imagery..
Triumph seem to really pride themselves on the history of their company so I'd like to show quite a retro look to the work..
I'm going to have a play around with other characters that communicate the different products they offer - not just the kinky stuff! - but the practical casual products too..
These characters are inspired by the benefits of having a bra fitting, this one is;
"Improve your overall body shape"
More updates to follow!

This brief is a nightmare! I already posted an illustration I did for this, but after checking out some of the competition they all looked extremely similar, so I wanted to try and come up with something more conceptual for it. Today has been stressful :'( I've had a few strong ideas, but when it came to executing it, it was a struggle to do a decent job and make it fit on the page as the magazine is a really awkward size!! It's a real shame because I was excited about doing this idea and now I just want to get the brief over with!
Anyway, I've started messing around with a different idea but I'm not sure how far it will go. I'm finding this really difficult as the cover requires a "portrait" of the main character and I'm definitely not used to working like this...waaaaaaaah! :'(
I was looking a Dadaism so it's mostly influenced by that..the white swan's body is made up of quotes from the film and the black swan's body is the sheet music for Swan Lake and that's about as deep as it goes..it's really rough and shit at the moment but hopefully it'll develop and I'll get something decent out of it..
Now time for a filthy pizza to cheer me up, diets are for losers :(
