log ladies

this is a work in progress for an animation that blake and i are making. it comes from some photos that blake took out on the farm at christmas of all the logs on the side of the path. there are photos of us walking along the track, so i have merged the two images to create the log ladies. it is just a sketch from my journal, but here, blake has superimposed textures and colours onto the the people. it is interesting seeing them walk out of your journal and jump to life. i love animation for this reason and would like to do more of it.

searching for invisible cities

finally i have come to the end of a long haul with a piece that i've been working on for a while. i have been trying to realise a two-dimensional piece in the style that i would like to make my three dimensional book that i am working towards for my masters project.

i am mostly happy with the outcome. the colours work well together, but if anything, i would take more care is the placement of images next time, and the use of space. however, i have learnt from this project and now i can be more conscious of it in the work to come.

now i am going to have a break from this kind of work (it is very labour intensive and all consuming...) and i am going to focus on some more commercial illustrations. i want to create a series of food-based images. i will let you know how it goes.
