S is for sun, sea and sand, which I won’t be seeing a lot of for the next six weeks. S is also for SUMMER HOLIDAYS, which means time away from school to focus on a big project, coming out in 2015. Hooray!

My entry to the Computer Arts cover competition for their graduate issue. The brief was to explore different finishes and coatings that can be achieved with their printing partners, whilst conveying the message of ‘New Talent’. I wanted to use a mirror finish to give the impression that YOU can be the centre of attention amongst the crowd of eager graduates.

Today, Emily and I ran a workshop for Year 11 students at Greenshaw High School. The focus was to explore the transition between planning an illustration and reaching a final image. To do this, the kids looked at developing collage characters and creatures from a page of experiments to a finished illustration. Here are some of the results. Some genuinely brilliant work here, and great fun!
