some rough odds and ends from my current university project I’m in the early stages of; a children’s book.
So much to do this term. It’s crazy, but also exciting! I’d like to keep you all updated with this, as I don’t have a clue what’s happening!
Here there are some very rough lettering ideas, character designs and such.
orwells101 asked: hi :) when u applied for university what did u put into your portfolio? any tips? Illustration would definitely suit me and i am preparing a portfolio. thanks!
Hi there! I’d advise you to include lots of sketchbook pages and drawings. I had more final illustrations in mine and that’s something that let me down, often times tutors want to see your ideas and initial drawings. If you have any personal sketchbooks that have everyday doodles, ideas or drawings from life definitely take them. They also love to see an array of different media and life drawings. That was my experience anyway :)
inadequacy-incorporated asked: You mer-men series is the most freakin adorable thing i have seen! Please do more like it!

Ice cream rockets away!
My boyfriend is a big KP fan, so this is for him. Had a good time drawing this one.
altsoba asked: Hi! You might know already buut I've been following you for a while and freakin' love your work man. I decided against doing art for university and I was wondering what it's like? So I can vicariously live through you haha
Hey, thank you!
The first year of the course I’m on was a bit of a let down, either down to myself expecting something great or the course just not delivering, either way it didn’t live up to my expectations.
That kind of snowballed into just dismissing most of the work I created over the months and handing in half-assed sketchbooks, until the last few projects when I decided to actually dive in and make an effort, which, unsurprisingly, was when I enjoyed what I was creating.
Art at university is definitely what you make of it. It’s a case of taking what you’re given and turning it into something great. At the end of the day the quality of the course isn’t as important as the effort and drive you put into the work.
I plan to kick ass in my second year hah!
I had this in my WIP folder for ages and thought I’d finish it off
