From Mind to Mark

Our second brief was to start working with different mark making techniques and different natural materials from our surroundings.

I used the objects I had found outside to create different mark makings on my work. I also used different sized paintbrushes to create different textures.

I really liked using this technique because it helped a lot with “artist block” which is quite frequent in my work life.

Adding words to an abstract image really does give the illustration a different feeling.



50 Artefacts

This was our first brief during induction week. Walking through Cardiff’s National Museum for 4 hours was an exciting experience as there were plenty of artefacts to look at, inspect and draw. I really enjoyed this exercise and i’m still continuing it through out the year.
