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:

Follow Me Maidstone Exhibition Photos

These are some photos taken at the Follow Me Maidstone Exhibition in June at the County Hall, Maidstone. All the work has been produced by second year Illustration students at UCA Maidstone, given a loose theme of transformation. There were around 30 illustrators in the show, so this isn't everyone's, just a little sample (if you squint you can see my book in there).

You can find out a bit more about some of the illustrators taking part, blogs etc. at the Follow Me Maidstone website produced for the event.

Obsession Project Work: Graves

So these are some initial drawings from the direction I'm hopefully going to take forward to my finals. The first set of graves are drawn from life in Maidstone Churchyard. I used an expensive looking carbon pencil for these, which gave strong blacks and didn't smudge much.
The second set were drawn without reference using a spongebrush and inks. The spongebrush was probably a bit too big for small scale drawings.
