The Ten Commandments

We were given a collection of geometric shapes, a 'visual alphabet' for us to work with. Without altering or adding to the shapes in any way, we were required to illustrate each of the ten commandments.
Only two colours (white doesn't count as a colour), the shapes may be overlapped, repeated and resized to scale.

I won't give them away but to summarize my concept the black triangle represents mankind, with the black square representing 'thy neighbour' and the white sphere the female, or neighbour's wife.










Misc

Just found this little drawing that passed me by... it was part of the News of The World project that I did on North Korea.

Woods' Wedding Invitations!

I've just had the pleasure of designing the invitations for my good friends Claire and Chris! The wedding colours are red and ivory and of an english summer garden theme, hence the pimms, strawberries and bunting. I can't wait for the big day!!

The designs are hand drawn although I would have liked to have played around with screenprinting the design with block colours. But the beautiful bride-to-be seemed pleased and that's the priority.

The Gentlest Discipline


Just before Christmas our tutors organised for us the opportunity to visit the London Coliseum to see the English National Ballet. Not only did we see it for free, but we got to watch the dress rehearsal one day before the performance was open to the public! And we had the place to ourselves!
It was so beautiful I felt moved by the whole atmosphere. The dancers make it look so easy, appearing weightless and  effortless in their gestures, but of course in reality they train incredibly hard and their bodies are extremely strong and powerful, like well oiled machines.
