I’ve been doing a lot of hand drawn type recently, but instead of just drawing alphabet after alphabet I wanted to do something different. So I decided to incorporate it into an illustration… Which I haven’t done for ages. I like this one though, I’m happier with it than the last thing I posted. It’s kind of trippy but in a cute way in my opinion – That’s why I like it I think. And the words that I’ve chosen mean a lot to me, since I’ve lived on my own I’ve learnt how to not let people get the better of me… I think it’s another life skill that Uni life teaches you.


Arrrgh! What’s happened to the blue in this!!? Noooo! It’s lighter than I wanted! I have been tricked by illustrator! Damn you! This will do for now though I guess! I’ve had enough of Adobe for one day! xox

This is one of the things I’ve managed to produce with Illustrator so far for the YCN British Music Experience brief. I like it, but I don’t really know what to do next with it. Also, it is supposed to be blue, red and white… But on here it’s showing up black and grey? Hopefully when I publish it it’ll be the right colours *fingers crossed* I haven’t yet incorporated the BME’s logo onto it yet, but I was thinking of printing it like a postcard with all the information on the back and maybe a free badge or something with the logo on. I’m not sure. Hmm… x

Do it now. Her name is Sia.

I bought this book the other day and it’s really good! Everyone who likes to make things as part of their work should definitely own this. It has examples of artists/designers and all the different ways you can create things and then shows you step by step how you can achieve it too! Pretty ace! x

I can mess about and make little pieces of work for myself. Last week a made a little recipe book for my friend and I used photoshop, illustrator and indesign (I was proud!)… But when it comes to Uni work and briefs something in my head just goes.. Nah mate. IT IS SO FRUSTRATING! Why can’t I just get on with it!? I can do this.. I will! It’s just going to me a mahoosive struggle. Definately don’t want to be a designer after this course. No way. I’d rather just keep graphics as a nice little hobby, because in the past three years I have lost my passion and it’s turned into a chore.

Here is something I’ve made, I have been trying to teach myself illustrator for a while now and I am slowly getting the hang of it. At the moment I’m really interested in hand drawn type so I thought I’d have a go at it myself. It’s okay I suppose! I like the colours that I’ve used because I didn’t want them to be the stereotypical shades you would find in a landscape… like a dream.
