Just a quick update today on my Final Major Project work – there’s finally something filling the frames! This is the beginning of the sketching process, trying to develop all the imagery and details in the drawings. Once I’ve finished all of the sketches, I’ll move on to the refining part with lots more drawing and tidying everything up.

1 down, 11 to go…

Narrative & Baroque.

I’ve started to develop my Final Major Project for university by creating these gothic windows with baroque details and digitally collaged flowers, in the hope of making a pretty, yet dark little book to display at my degree show, along with large paintings of the characters in my story.

My overall plan is to retell the story of ‘The Maiden Without Hands’ by the Brother Grimm with a darker ending through a modern graphic novel inspired narrative. The drawings of the actual story are underway and I hope to have the majority of it finished in the next month or so. Watch this space!

A little experimentation taking inspiration from Etta James’ song ‘At Last’. In my opinion this is one of the most beautiful love songs of all time and is so timeless and classic. I wanted to create a ‘love potion’ bottle inspired by alchemy potion bottles with a decadent twist, taking the iconic earring and incorporating it into the design.

I feel this still needs some work and perhaps a different approach altogether – monoprint and collage are possibilities that I think are worth exploring.
