Spiel: Football North

So Finally I can show you what I've been working on! The past few weeks have been so manic that in haven't had time to think let alone blog... but I'm going home for christmas on saturday and should have some more time to do fun stuff instead of working. YAY! 

I am finally done with the Spiel project! (see here) We have an exhibition tomorrow evening of all the posters we have made and... WE HAVE A BLOG! but then I'm finished with it. Its been a long journey and not alway been an easy one. Ive certainly learnt some lessons from this project that i will take with me for the rest of my life.

Anyway here is a picture of myself with my poster!! anndddd a sneaky fun group shot of all the people who did this project with their posters.

INPRINT in Manchester

So last weekend I whisked off to Manchester with Victoria to sell goodies at another INPRINT (See the last one here). It was an early start, and i overslept. What a great start to the day. We were located in the cellar room of The Soup Kitchen, a modern cafe/restaurant by day and bar by night (as we saw from the left over pieces of lime!) This was definitely a much smaller fair than the one I had been too before, meaning we didn't sell as much. BUT we did have a good time together and may have bagged a table for another fair this winter....if they reply in time/ we can make everything for it! 

Sorry for the lack of posts for a while. Uni work has been building up towards this final deadline on Monday! I'll be posting some new/finished work soon :)

Deadly Dash.

So since my last post on this project I've come a long way. Thats right folks... I've gone all weird and started sewing in to photographs of dead people. Not pleasant but i think its working well. Ive looked at enough murder scenes to scar my mind, what I do for my work ey! 

I especially like the ones where they look like they are sleeping. 

Collage Collection.

A few collages from a workshop the other week....think they tuned out quite successful.

The Great Wall of Spiel

The wall of footballers today. Trying to decide which one I should exhibit for my review... Scary shit. So glad you can see how I have progressed through screen printing an how much better I have become! Fingers crossed Spiel like them now!

Busy doing everything.

Yet more screen printing today. My legs have turned to jelly for standing all day but it was worth it now I have a load of work done. This is one of my favourites from today!

Football Crazy

Recently I have been working on a live brief at university for Spiel. I have to create a series of posters for a football game for design creatives. So here are a few images of the work in progress and some of the first outcomes. These are only tests but so far i'm pretty happy with most of them.

Im Stitching With You.

At the moment life has been busy. Uni has dumped a loadddddd of work on us therefore, meaning not a lot of time to do much else apart from work. So here is some of that work! One of my projects is basically an experimental project in which I can pretty much do anything, hence all the sewing. I'm not sure where this is going yet but I'm enjoying it. I think the outcomes are pretty good too!

Fingers crossed they only get better!

Landbaby at the Bluecoat

As you may know that I went to INPRINT Liverpool this Sunday with a few friends to sell there and Claire from Landbaby at the Bluecoat came and told us to pop in with our work. We did. Now my work is officially in a shop! Thats right. It happened that quickly, and I couldn't be happier! She took on two of my BFG prints, a range of may christmas and birthday cards and my Mary print. Its only a term basis just to see what sells in the shop but im just so excited!! What a start! All my friends got taken up too so i had a celebratory brownie in the library for everyone. You can check out Landbaby here on Facebook and Bigcartel

Also go and check out my friends and their beautiful work!!

I know what you did last weekend.

Last weekend a few friends and I shared a table at INPRINT Liverpool, and i have to say that it was a great experience. It was a busy day (and didn't help that i had caught a cold) and I ended up going to bed at 9pm but it was so worth it.

I met so many lovely people and managed to get some sort of experience of selling at these kind of fairs. I managed to sell two packs of Christmas cards and have gained some amazing work from my friends for free (well an art swap). I cant wait for the next one! For now I'm going to LandBaby at the Bluecoat to show Claire , who owns the shop, some of my work in case she would like to buy/ order any of my prints or cards! Which is super exciting!

Anyway for now here is our stall and my beautiful friends. I can't wait to do it all again!

mystic lives.

As you may be able to tell I have been obsessed with magic and all things magical. Hence all the witches and magical hands. 

At the moment I'm busy with Uni work and preparing for INPRINT Liverpool, I have all my cards to fold and package and then make belly bands for the Christmas cards! ANNNDDDD its my first day of my Final year at Uni today. I can't believe how fast it has come round. 
So much work and so little time!

Oh Saucy.

Another print I shall be selling at INPRINT. These came out of a day where i forced myself to sit down and make something, a sign that I'm wanting new underwear!?! maybe. I have to say though I'm loving all the pastel colours in this and the slightly off filling of colour. I may be behind by about a few years doing this, but boy I have found this now. 

Think this is one of my faves.

Mr Postman

So exited!! The cards I ordered have finally arrived! Lots of work still to do as you can see they aren't folded so gonna have to have a night being busy and folding and packing but I can't wait! I have both Christmas cards as well as general birthday cards and I shall be selling these at INPRINT as well as my etsy once it is open! 

Dead Arm.

Look out for this as a print at the getting ever closer INPRINT Liverpool! Today I am moving back to the 'pool for University so it shall be a very busy and emosh day, but i'm so excited to start again.

A little edit.

If you saw my earlier post you will see that I'm selling at INPRINT Liverpool! So I've been flicking through all my work to decide what to sell, and since his BFG drawing went down so well on my Tumblr i thought i would use it but it was missing something. SOOOOOO I added this quote from the BFG book, i thought it was rather cute and suited it well. TA DAHHH!!! 

Like this? Well I shall be opening an Etsy shop soon in which this will be one of the prints I shall be selling. Keep an eye out for details!

Inprint Liverpool.

As you may know if you follow this blog I have some exciting news!

I will be selling at Inprint Liverpool on 22nd September and I can't wait!! This is the reason I've been so busy/ putting up so much work recently. I didn't find out till I came back off holiday (1st September) that I had actually got a table so its been a stressful few weeks. Getting images sent off to print, producing more work to sell, setting up an etsy account (!!!!) which should be up and running very soon. All at the same time as trying to pack up all my things for going back to university and doing uni work. DAMN. I've even been doing maths in the shower to sort out numbers.

So Inprint had a fair in August too but they are now doing a print exchange. We shall have the first fair in Liverpool with a few German Students and then Inprint goes over to Germany with a few of LJMU's students- I may be one! Its all about seeing other peoples work and see what they make and sell and Everyone is welcome to come and have a nose around.

The September fair is being held at the extremely cool Camp and Furnace in Liverpool (It has caravans inside, therefore very cool.) and is taking over the whole first floor. There shall be food, drinks, music and of course plenty of really cool art. So if you're in the Liverpool area or happen to be close and like good art, good people and good food then have a pop down and check it out, come say "Hi" and see whats happening in the world of Illustration/ Graphic design!!

Can't Wait!

Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

Yes I went there. I drew some kind of Virgin Mary looking woman.

There is going to be a serge of work within the next few posts because I've produced quite a bit the last few days.
