Mock up and printed newspaper


Newspaper - Mock up - -Artwork


well that dates it....

Chucky springs to mind!

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE ONE

Took old portfolio out to take some photos and tucked in a side pocket where  forgotten sketchbooks for when I was a teenager...I must have thought I could be a fashion designer....not sure about the faces but the one dress reminds me of Kylie Minogue's dress...mine was even labeled to be in white! Bottom is a photo of first mural painted... just look at the sofa...all back in fashion now!

Faces are a little worrying!







Sure the bottom dress is something like I see x factor judges in..


Not sure why...I would have done maternity....!!!

Beauty and the Beast

My contribution to the production...The wardrobe to be worn so the wearer needs to be able to dance and move. This came together very well heavy felt type fabric from recycle place ...nice to work with, good body and holds shape but strange as it has broken and blunted scissors and machine needles.  The roughness of  and raggy feel due to this struggle gives it a quircky feel.  More photos to follow next week as i make the top.... maybe a change from original drawing, had an idea!





Screen printing....achievement

 Not my dress or my skills to make the dress but 15/16 meters of fabric that I taught a student the techniques and assisted the printing of.  My love of doing this i used my own discharge paste and unpaid time to do the fabric. Student had assistance to sew this as her sister will be wearing it!  Steam punk. Well done to sixth form student!  I am proud....of outcome

WEBSITE...

I  have been and am in the process of updating my website. Does not look much but I have spent a week finding all sorts of images storing, sorting and resizing....absolutely brain dead but,  when i checked out what I have done it is so worth it!  Well I think so!   If anyone sees a problem please let me know...The old is still mixed with the new but its a start...Time for a cuppa...

Be more dog...

As i am starting to set up a cutting service I had the idea of doing pet portraits as vinyl decals started with this fellow and have realized that maybe its too general. Need to have a re think , so difficult to work out how best to proceed.
