Today me and drew worked all day in the print room at Camberwell, To kick start our 14-week plan handed to us by our course leader, we started experimenting with printing on t-shirts for the potential future project and sale. The results were quite nice, my stencils didn't quite match up on the fabrics, i think the ink must shave shrunk a little under the heat of the hairdryer because the prints on card were spot on. But like drew said, it adds to the hand made approach to the whole thing. If you'd like to buy any one of these t-shirts we're making, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and in the near future, we might be possibly setting up a shop front online.

3 day project with freelance illustrator JAKe (http://www.jake-art.com/) on a randomly selected newsclippings, i was given an article on the american ellections;
'McCain attacks Obamas tax and spending policys'.
It was quite intresting to pull some quotes from the Republican side, they were hinting that Obama has 'Socialist ideals' and 'Pals around with terrorists'. These are my three final images.

Here is a few InDesign documents from my end of year Industry report, we had to create a 24 page (11 spreads/ cover & back) book thats to be bound accordingly. As I'm not a Graphic Designer, i enjoyed the challenge of trying to understand typographic hierarchy and layout, even using the grid system and InDesign was a completely new process to me. These are to be French Fold, this was simply to avoid using a pagination chart. This books now to be sent to the printers and book binders, I'm interested to see the final thing will look like.

Thought i would start out with a self portrait, this was for my credentials project that would appear on my CV. This is hand drawn and coloured using free hand on photoshop, no illustrator used.
This is 'Alan Partridge', I was just experimenting with different ways for portraying characters from classic British comedy for my UKTV Gags brief. I went with a completly abstract character in the end that performed the actions. It was my first attempt at Stop-Frame animation, the outcome was very rough but something i enjoyed and would like to do a lot more of in the future.
