I'm a Creep..

Using my microphone, Movie Maker and Audicity programs, I have been producing a range of videos using the same visuals but trying out different audio techniques.
For this video, i changed the pitch on my voice over, the tempo for the background beat and repeated the quiet kissing noises.


I recently bought a new microphone so that i could get a different sound to what i already can achieve using the inbuilt microphone on the laptop.
The pound shop mic is good in a way that its rubbish!
The sound is slighlty muffled and quiet, which works brilliantly against the exsiting audio i had in place..
More to come, these are all testers, my deadline is the third week in January, so hopefully by then i should have something i like lots!

The Multiple

This was the original draft idea for the multiple which i am creating as part of my module, Location and Application.

The plan is to make the design a little less 'basic/ formal/ average', this format that i have chosen for the silk scarf is slightly A-Level-ish.

I want the scarf to be a singular image, using more illustration than photography, making the lines softer and allowing the image to speak for itslef, rather than having the repet pattern, which is a little bit "in your face"!

New silk scarf templates will be up soon..

Future Fashion....

Looking again for fashion predictions for the future...

(All  uploaded videos are from You Tube, and all bold writing is from the you tube clip itself)

"Uploaded on 2 Sep 2010.
This project aims to create a remarkable space with a whole new fashion retail concept. Giving an opportunity for different people to get together, consumers, designers, tailors, artists, visitors... In order to reeducate them new knowledge and ideas about fashion through participating the recreate processes. Also by reselling and remaking recycle materials to give a rebirth to discarded objects, at the same time to recall some of our lost memories. It is time to reform the traditional fashion system to a new way of thinking, interacting and living. So be prepared of the future by refashion your minds."

Silk Scarves

I am now using my illustrations to create a new peice of art, for the multiple which we need to produce for Major Project A.
This 'multiple' will then be used to promote myself/ my work.
I have chosen to translate the drawings into patterns for silk scarves!
This page is for my Formative Assessment, some research into silk scarves on the market today, and some of my scarves which ive scanned in and mirrored.

As the competition is all about future fashion, i have chosen my illustration which i feel best describes my vision;
tin foil jacket
pale skin
big hair
exaggerated make-up
contact lenses
So, the square scarf design above is my multiple idea, hopefully i can print this in our college print room, and i'd like to make a set of 5, about 60 x 60 cm.

Colour trends 2013

Looking at the colour trends for the upcoming year, i decided to have my own fashion/ hair colour trend for 2013, my own predictions, for young women and the more mature woman.

Working on variations of myself, for the Diversity NOW! competition; using different sizes for the features, different skin tones, and colours/shades for the clothing.
Taking facial features from previous photography and mixing it with my illsutrations.
For example, i have used my skin on the last three images, and reduced the opacity, to allow the ink to still show through.
