Journal of a collector

We were given the brief of making and showing a collection of things. I decided to go with a collection of memories and moments in the form of booklets.


I made two final pieces – one of general memories and one as a sort of travel diary. I generally like how they have turned out, I should have planned the cover of ‘photo memories’ better so the crease wouldn’t have spoilt it, but it does sort of make it look like and old photo album. I was finding it a little difficult to find things to add to them, as I am a private person and there were things I would rather not share with others but if it where a private project for myself I could have added more items to each book.

Whilst I’m happy with the work, I think they could have been better, because I couldn’t decide on one, I had to split my time between the two of them. If I where to do it again, for the ‘Photo Memories’ I would have done more photos and re-make some photos, and for ‘Barcelona – Travel diary’ I would have liked to add more things into it and re-draw some of the drawings – maybe making the booklet a bigger size would have helped and that I am going to make similar travel diaries for other and future trips for myself.


5 frame narrative

5 Frame narrative image for uni – vaguely inspired by Hunters in the snow by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. I added a 6th to make it into a book to test how it looks ^^
I really enjoyed doing this short project
The thumbnail sketches – they began out so clearly XD
Finished work + book test

I hope you all like it 🙂

Characters and work belong to me 🙂

Final Book


It’s done, it’s finally done! I’m quite happy how it’s turned out, the binding and the print out isn’t perfect and that I should improve on next time, but I like it, it was the push I needed to try and make a comic and it gave me the chance to work on a project, and getting a prologue done. I’m still not a 100% sure of it though, I don’t think I’ll post the full comic pages online, but it was a nice thing to work on.

Art and work belongs to me.

Illustration task – Victorian Revolution

We were given a little task to create an editorial illustration to a piece of writing we were given, and treat the task as though it was for a real client, and these two at the top where my final designs. I prefer the first one with the girl on it and I think it’s the better of the two but I think that the other one would be the one most likely be in the magazine as it was closest to the other illustrations.

Here are some of the process images:

I really liked working on this task and would like to do it again.
