My friend Hannah and I decided to try out some stop motion animation with my vast collection of Lego. Our initial ideas were very ambitious, but we quickly scaled back in favour of figuring out how it even worked. This meant turning things into skeletons!
Find out more about the project here. Keep up to date daily via my Instargam. 100 Days Complete Alright alright alright! Gosh darn every one of you that requested this one 😜 impossible with the size and time constraints. But I do agree it had to be done, albeit simplified. THANK YOU to everyone who […]
A two hour sketch comprised of pencil, fineliner pen, markers, white gel pen and watercolour pencil.
#100DaysofFarthingWood I’ve been really out of touch with drawing. To get back into it I’m going to do the “how to draw _____” in each Farthing Wood Friends magazine. This was what got me into drawing when I was a kid and fuelled a desire to invent characters when I was older. Watch this space
My fun new years resolution was delayed this year, but I am very happy I can finally start sharing it with you. In the run up to Christmas I got my hands on a Wreck This Journal. These books are very popular on the internet at the moment, and serve as an invitation for you […]
It’s Web Expo Guildford week, therefore continuing with my “web event themed nails” (see Pubhack and dConstruct). I was so busy this week, these are quite messy, but still a hit. Changed my mind about what I wanted to do part way through. Had intended Xs but just didn’t have the time. Had some chevron shaped […]
A few days ago I shared a work-in-progress shot of a drawing. I watched one of my favourite movies (Girl Interrupted) and was inspired by an image of Ryder and Jolie that I’d found on Pinterest. This is it, sort of finished. Finished to the point where I’m tired of it, anyway. I’m still not […]
A while ago Hannah and I played with some marble inks. They were a lot of fun, and a lot of mess. The inks we used were pearlescent, which I think made them a bit tricky at times. We tried lots of colour combinations and papers, too much ink and not enough. Here are my share. Finally […]
I’ve been practising my drawing, doing something every day for just over two weeks. It’s been interesting. I really want to get back into my art but I’m just so rusty! More practice. This is a rough attempt at Hermione. I’m not happy with the hair, but it’s very tricky. I like mixing pen into […]
I don’t think I know a lot about art. More than the average person maybe, but not a special amount. I spend a lot of my time trying to rectify this, and then the rest of my time wondering if I’m tainting my own creativity. It is quite a conflict, but then I remember that […]
This isn’t the first time I’ve written about this, and I doubt it will be the last. Freelancing has been a journey of discovery for me, not least the free time I allow myself. We all imagine we’ll do great things when we “have the time” and sometimes we do. Sometimes fear gets in the […]
Fellow Jazhans conspirator Hannah and I booked a long weekend in Paris. The goal was to explore as much art as possible, whilst making the most of French cuisine and going up tall buildings. In those things we were successful, with some thoughts for a second trip in the future.
