This week...

After handing in my Minor Project i felt a bit lost, having been so busy for the last 8 weeks i didn't know where to begin for my Final Major Project!

I took some time to rest and get my brain back in order. Had a lovely weekend last week; York checking out all the little boutiques, vintage shops and Christmas markets, then spending some time making presents for the family, it really got my creativity flowing again and got me back on track to begin my FMP ideas.

So for my FMP I am following my own trend, 'Endo/Exo'. It will be an exploration of skeletal structures and protective layers.
I will be looking at delicate skeletons, the structures within and contrasting this with the outer layers and protective coverings. Here are a few ideas of what I might be drawing from...

If anyone has any interesting locations they think might help or any museums/exhibitions that might be relevant I would love to hear about them!

I am really looking forward to getting into this project, with it being the final one of my degree it is going to be epic! I am going to put 110% in so that I might be lucky enough to get a chance of being a part of New Designers next year... fingers crossed!

I plan to start drawing tomorrow, so once I have some bits and pieces done I will get some photos up on here!

Hand-in date has arrived!

This week i have been busy getting ready for handing in my Minor Project. Today was that lovely day and it feels so good to have it all displayed in my bay!

I am really pleased with how it has all turned out and think it reflects my concept beautifully. It has been a lot of hard work but it has been worth it! I love spending time in the print room experimenting with new designs.

The experimenting paid off and I am planning to continue some of the techniques I have learnt through to my Final Major Project, hopefully I will have some exciting materials to play with, my initial thoughts are to try something out on acrylic watch this space!

Here is a little sample of 'Urban Bohemia'. I love how the pleating has turned out, opening the parcel yesterday was very exciting!! And using the laser cutter was a challenge, seeing it cut through my carefully printed fabrics was a little scary, but when it comes out like this I can't help but be happy! I hope you like and any comments are always welcome!
