Alls well that ends well!

Well after 8 weeks of emotional ups and downs the Minor project is now officially handed in ! In the end I was very pleased with my final collection but all I can do now is wait to see how well I have done...for now here's my work displayed in my bay, and bring on the Final Major Project!

Development so far

So, after spending a little time getting into my most favourite part of the design process..the development, I now have a few of my initial idea to show! I really enjoy this part of the design process as it gives you an opportunity to really explore the limits of your drawings and bend and twist them to fit your purpose!

Stage complete!

Finally I can say that I've finished my drawing sheets and im happy that I have enough imagery to continue into development!
Let's see how it goes!

Drawing continued...

Steady as she goes...

We grow and we learn

Since my last post I have made some substantial changes to my overall concept and theme...these changes mostly occurred because as I started to draw (or at least attempted) I found myself stuck and decided to rethink the situation!
So here's the new plan...sticking with the fruit and vegetable theme, I will be looking at them more closely, focusing on pattern and texture and even how they look under a microscope (oooo) and I will be combining this with mechanical imagery, cogs, chains and other inner workings that you wouldn't ordinarily see!
Since the shift in direction I jar found it much easier to get going and have gotten underway with drawing sheets...I am very excited to see how this project flows and what I can come up with for development!

Start as you mean to go on...

This seems to be my new motto at the moment, start as you mean to go on, so here goes! Were at the beginning of a new academic year...the final year of the course. Theres so much to look forward to, but a lot of hard work and determination is required to get us there!
To get us started we have the minor project, I have chosen to go with fashion fabrics on this one and I am feeling quitetly confident about my theme of 60's geometric shapes combined with the circular imagery of fruits and vegetables...but only time will tell!
I will post back with visuals very soon!

They've Arrived!

Wahey, as if by the speed of light, the last few of my ebay purchases turned up on my doorstep this morning! I was so excited, like a small child at Christmas...quite sad I know when it was only old stamps and train tickets. Never the less they are very pretty and its made me feel more confident about this project.
So there we have it, one compass, nine old (used) rail tickets, nine vintage luggage labels, a boat load of old stamps, all that missing is my partridge in a pear tree!
