Looking back through my early second year work, the food packaging drawings stuck out like a sore thumb, but for a good reason this time!
So using this idea and some quick fashion themed drawings, I came up with these two very simple 'advertisements'.
Using photoshop, i chose some 'mint choccy' colours, repeated the image, and added the Aero brand logo.

Today I went to Bradford's Impressionist Gallery 1, to attend the David Shrigley talk. I took my "WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING BOOK?" with me for signing, and this was what he did....
When i asked him to 'sign' my book, Shrigley copied the subtitle,
(THE ESSENTIAL DAVID SHRIGLEY)
directly underneath, in the same font, same size, in black, which has rather rattled my cage, but having thought about it, i suppose it's unique! Unless he does that to everybodies books?!
And here are my notes from the hour long-ish talk.

I found this image whilst searching Google, for a photograph of a fish for me to illustrate for some fashion drawings i'm working on, i think it's lovely!!

Watching Miami and L.A Ink i have always been interested in Kat Von D's ever changing fashion, make-up and hair styles. So here are some of her best looks (which i will then give my opinion on, consisting mostly of jealous bitchiness!).
Here we have Kat Von D in a tightie whitie number, with what i'm sure are chicken fillets down her bra, and lovely curled locks of long brown hair.
Barbie?! Is that you? No, it's Miss D wearing her top just under her nipples, her pants just above her lady garden and a few strands of straw on her head.
And this last image is when i love her style/look. I think that the red hair really suits her skin colour, i love her shiny silver leggings, and am glad to see she's covered up a little more than usual.
I am starting to research comedians who use some sort of art in their work, whether it be sketches, illustration, stories/ books, T.V or film, for my upcoming dissertation.
Above is a sketch by the late Bob Monkhouse, and i am going to use my blog as a place for storing all of my "online finds", like this 30 second sketch.

I'm looking into entering a Fashion competition as part of our Major Project, with my illustrations.
I don't read many magazines, other than Style which comes with The Sunday Times, and have come to realise that i need to be more involved in the world going on around me, not just for Fashion, but art in general.
So I have started out lightly, looking at Pigeons and Peacocks Magazine, and doing some sketches from the imagery inside.
The first thing I wanted to draw was my pair of running shoes.
After scanning it in and looking at the format, I cleaned it up ohn Photoshop and removed some of the unnecessary drawings.
After visiting my college library, and having chosen a couple of fashion mags to get inspiration out of, i drew this directly from an article about the brand GAP.
I have removed the wonky line from the bottom of the image, the GAP logo and the little ink blobs.
I will still work on these peices, perhaps i will add some computer typed text to replace my typography, or add colour, who knows?

Major project A; Competitions and Awards.
I have been reading into breifs from past competitions on different websites, to try understand the high quality i need my work to reach in order to compete with some of the current artists making work now!
YCN had a hand full of breifs to choose from last year, and it was the Heinz Salad Cream Advert Breif which caught my attention first, i dont know if i can put the winner video up yet, so here are some fun, young adverts which have been aired.
