So I am continuing with the egg theme and here is a photo of the drawing I did of the trinket box...

I then went on to make this drawing into a pattern in a variety of colours and styles:

 I have also decided that the pages in my book, 50 things to do with eggs, will be drawn insatructions so I have been drawing some recipies...

Finally I made a chicken that I hope will sit on my egg shaped book, and complete the look I am going for!

Booking a Charity...

Our first proper project is called Booking a Charity, we had to go to a charity shop and buy an abject which we would get inspration from to eventually create a book which shouldn't be a generic ring bound one...
I found this trinket box in Oxfam
I have decided to move on to look at eggs, linking to the shape of the object, and that fact that it is different. I am going to create a book that is 100 things to do with eggs, both conventional and uncoventional. So far I have blown and painted eggs and will ues them as one of the ideas, I also hop to grow cress egg heads and experiment with food art.

Our first project back after christmas was to create a welcome video for a Danish College that we are corresponding with, here is our final video...


So I'm hoping to go to either,Buckinghamshire New University, Lougborough, Bath Spa, Leeds University or Bournemouth Arts Uni so I had to create a portfolio of my pages, here are the final ones...

Fingers crossed that I get in somewhere...
The next project that we moved on to was bright ideas in which we had to create a series of images of light sculptures, here are the final ones I chose...
Balloons over wire and then over fairy lights

Mirrors and glue

Sculpture made from melted boiled sweets

more sweets with a candle in
Sweets on chicken wire
carboard shapes on a stick inspired by the cafe at Little Hampton
carboard shapes sewn into and glue gunned on an OAP

Mirror sculpture

I particularly like the sweet sculptures because they looked really good with a light in and it was an idea that no one else had though of.

Final animation

I haven't posted in ages as I have been busy, but this is the final animation that I created for the project, it is childish but that is why I like it!
