Moody mood board!

Mood board (kinda, I guess) for the FMP...

Including a little bit of everything, at least it gives me a good direction to head in. Lets hope I get on top of the game here and keep up with the amount of work I have going on. Competitions are side lining but I'm involving a large amount of work in at once to be able to keep it fresh. 

General idea is a collectors edition short story book set. Involving, the stories in a book, card collectables, much like cigarette cards and then some 3D pieces to bring it to life. Hopefully building a good repertoire of displayable work.

There once was a tiny mouse

First page and illustration, looking at how I can collaborate my ideas into a style that represents both the artists, story and my own interests. Kurt Schwitters 'There once was a tiny mouse'. 

Original painting scanned in to do some work on CS6. 

And then after some work, I think theres still some bits to do, hands, feet etc. But you get the idea!

Collaborating a look to my Final Major Project, seems harder than it looks but trying out a collaboration between Shaun Tan and Salvador Dali... Sketches will appear soon when they actually look like an image!

New year

New Year, New Work.
Time to get organised and in the zone for the final months of my 3 year university experience. Luckily enough I have invested into a few of my favourite Shaun Tan books from over the christmas holiday, that and the Special Illustrated Collectors Edition of 'Stylist' magazine. 
The list of work is endless but never the less I feel fresh and ready for the work ahead, work will be present on here as I charge on through.
