Mwera Farm Website

What with getting a job and moving to London, I've been a bit slow on updating my blog, so here's something I've been working on in the meantime.

Mwera farm is a charity project partnering schools in Nidderdale with Kenyan schools. The goal is to create a sustainable farm and to bring two communities together in the process.

I have been working on the website for the project to highlight the Limestone: the living rock DVD.

The process of creating the website was a bit of a learning curve in itself as this is the first site I've fully made in dreamweaver,  there's still lots more to come!

Adobe Illustrator

I've been brushing up on my Illustrator skills recently, mainly as a reminder because I've neglected it a bit with my uni work. The first image is from a tutorial, the map and faces are my own work.

Papergirl Birmingham 2012

I just realised I never said anything about Papergirl Birmingham!

Papergirl is an all inclusive submission Exhibit that takes place in many cities around the world. After the work has been displayed in their gallery, the art is taken out and distributed to passers by for free. You can find out more about Papergirl Birmingham on their official Facebook page.  I wasn't able to make it down to the exhibition myself, but here are some photos of my work in the exhibition courtesy of Becky Smith (well, her parents).

You can also see my work in this video from the launch party:

My LMNOP Publish Me Competition Entry

My book made it through the nominations for LMNOP's Publish Me competition! The winner of the competition gets their book published, and you can now vote for my book to win over on their site now.

The book tells the story of a professional feud between two 19th century American palaeontologists, illustrating extracts of letters written by Prof. Edward Drinker Cope. This is the result of a 15 week research lead project, with illustrations produced using indian ink.

Below is some of the artwork taken from the book:


You can now view my portfolio through issuu!

Penguin Design Awards 2012 Entry: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

The brief this year was to create a cover design for Ken Kesey's novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (which is probably more famous for the Jack Nicholson film adaptation). I tried to make the title of the book the main focus of my design as people are probably more familiar with the novel than with Ken Kesey the author.
The text is meant to resemble a stamp, and the images in the background are based on Rorschach tests, but I tried to make them more obviously resemble faces than just blobs.

The Penguin Design Awards competition is open until the 19th of April and you can enter it here.

Website, Adobe Muse and other things

I've finally managed to get my portfolio website properly up and running! I made it using Adobe Muse which is a completely code free (and amazing) web design tool, which is free to download as a slightly basic beta here.

Go take a look: www.adrianeverett.co.uk :)

In other news, we've been doing a few two day project/workshop things at uni over the past couple of weeks.  For the first workshop, we had to swap our research files with another student to pick two image out of. We then had to make an 8 A5 image narrative based on the images.
These are the pictures I was given; an portrait of Othniel Charles Marsh an image of Death playing some kind of heart-guitar by Russian illustrator Skirill.

I tried to keep the narrative in the images relatively loose, and was working digitally for a change.
Here's a selection of my images from the workshop:
