Grow: Degree Show Preview Night

On Friday we had the preview night of our degree show at Stockport College, showing the work of all the design pathways; Illustration, Graphic Design, Moving Image, Surface Design, Photography etc., and it was a great success! It was incredibly busy and really exciting to have everyone together and showcase the culmination of 3 years work. 

For the show I put up 6 A2 size prints of some of my images from my FMP on space and underwater exploration. Here are the images:

In a surprising turn of events, I'm very proud to have won 'Best in Show' for my illustration work! With so much incredible work on show (seriously...the show looked amazing..) I'm really proud and happy to have my name chiselled onto the shield this year to represent our illustration group.

I've posted some pics below of the goings on, and will blog again soon as the show will be going into Manchester next Friday for a one-day exhibition spectacular in the northern quarter.

For now, the show is still on at college, Mon-Thurs  10am - 7.30pm, so come check it out!

So in recent news, I've recently teamed up with 3 fellow illustrators from my course to form a collective called Foursight. The collective consists of myself, Kris Sale, Jordan O'Brien and Matt Bray, and for our first project, we are working on a print publication with help from the guys at OWT Creative

We will be announcing details about the project very soon, so make sure you follow us over at our blog and twitter to find out more, but not to be completely vague, it involves work from various fantastic illustrators, and we are working very hard to make it something special. Needless to say we are incredibly excited about the project! 

I can see you're intrigued, so go check out the blog and twitter now, and keep your peepers open for updates in the next few days.....

MT: Mindfulness

I did a few editorial illustrations in the not too distant past for the current issue of Managment Today magazine. I've post some pics of the images below along with the images themselves.

The first was a small illustration for a piece about transparency in businesses, so I did a glass suitcase exposing important things such as money, identity (passport) etc.

These next two are a full page and spot for a feature on 'mindfulness' and how it could improve your work life and therefore your business. These were originally going to have a 60's/70's theme to them which would have been a lot of fun to do, however the article got tailored back a little bit, but it was nevertheless a good experience and great to see in print!
