Nan's Birthday Card

Just playing around with some new pens I recieved for Christmas and food colouring. I like the strokes which form the body of the bird and the background where I have left the colouring to settle naturally.

Final Design - Avocado - Supermarket

This was my Pattern out come, I am overal pleased with it. The Avocados should of been scaled up however I am super pleased with the colouring I chose for it. I feel it expresses the history of the fruit.
I found the food photography so hard, however I am pleased with the image. This image is to dark on one side, but this has helped me see problems with lighting for next time I do any still life work.

These were my Surreal pieces, they are aimed at children and I just wanted to turn the Avocado into some kind of Dinosaur/animal that children might like. I personally really like them and would love to make some knitted or stuffed version of them.
Here is my Illustrative piece and I want to express what kind of health and vitamin benefits Avocados actually had. So I came up with this really simple maths equation however I feel it would of worked alot better if the Pills looked more like Pills. So I needed to improve on the quality of line represented.

Layout Pads (Selection)
The layout pages are my favorite part of any project but with this one I got really carried away. I would of uploaded them all up but it would of just absorbed the whole site. I really love the energy and passion expressed from the colours and drawings. 72

Secondary Research

This project we had to do secondary research into our chosen fruit and vegetable then present it in a personal way. I chose to do all mine in hand drawn/painted so I could control every element of my pages. Here is a selection of pages out of the ten. 65

Illustrator Tutorial - Quick Mock Up

Just a quick mock up of a website. I do not overally like the design however I do like the drawing of the Avocado I created in illustrator.
