Here’s a link to the pdf, which is easier to read:¬†Black Death Illustrated Guide.¬†This assignment was a fun one, we simply had to research a topic and create informational illustrations about it. Because I have always found medieval life and the Black Death fascinating, I decided to created an educational guide to the Black Death. While the illustration style departs slightly from my usual stylization, I think that it’s still recognizably mine. It was a lot of fun to reference medieval woodcuts and illuminated manuscripts, and I think I’ll probably use some of the reference in the future as well.

ps. while I did do my research, I wouldn’t exactly use this booklet as reference for an essay.

I just finished designing patterns based on Canadian wildlife. I wanted to design patterns for Parks Canada to help update their merchandise, making it more contemporary and more appealing to young adults. These were done specifically with textile use in mind, so that Parks Canada could sell fashionable clothing that highlights Canada’s beauty and biodiversity. The patterns work at many different scales, so they can also be adapted for things like notebooks, accessories, and even home furnishings.

Here’s the final poster design for the Rocky Horror Show. This was a fun school project, as we were given the choice of what performance to promote in a poster. I went with what I knew: Rocky Horror. I tried to give the poster a different feel to the Rocky Horror posters that I’m used to, a bit more of an updated look and feel for today’s audience.

So I thought I’d design an album cover. I love Kate Rusby’s work, so this is my little tribute to her.

It occurs to me that perhaps I should write more in each post to make them a bit more search-engine-friendly, but then, I know nothing about google rankings. But I’ll just tell you a bit about what I’m working on right now. Currently I’m working in retail full time so I can save up some cash for the school year. I haven’t had much chance to draw lately, but I’ve been trying to develop my style into something I like. For this painting I tried to channel William Morris a little bit with the leaves. I’m still working out how to use coloured pencils and watercolour together, and I’m finding the pencils a bit frustrating to work with. After being inspired by Gennady Spirin’s work, I’ve been experimenting with different media, trying to find something that works for me. Most of what will be posted on this blog this summer will be experimental work.
