Crocodile fears.

I'd like to start this post by saying that I don't actually like reptiles or scaly animals, my phobia of snakes is particularly amusing to some of my friends, so my new obsession of drawing crocodiles seems strange.


Greedy Croc. 



Friendly Croc. 




Swimming Crocs. 



Croc in Laboratory Croc. 



Spoiler: Crocodiles do not feature in my next university project. But wolves do...  


Sorry!



I haven't posted for a while but I have been doing work, I promise. I am now back at Uni after a very nice summer break and am now three weeks into my third and final year! I'm currently working on a project which will hopefully be posted on this blog but for now I thought I'd let you see my illustration inspired by 'The Giraffe, the Pelly and Me.' It's a bit different for me as its painted traditionally rather than digitally.

PARTY...




...invitations and prospective business cards for a local children's play centre. Quite fun to do and with quite cheesy results!

For my next project I promise less gimmicks and better artwork.

Carnival of the Animals Package Design



The aim of this project was to make classical music more appealing and exciting for young children. The project lead me to consider a unique packaging which could make a CD stand out as well as provide children with the knowledge needed to get the most out of the music. Based on the Carnival of the Animals, a widely taught piece of music and perfect for young children, the packaging aims to provide a memorable experience for a child.

The box is complete with a book explaining the movements, a pop-up CD and information about the instruments.

Information - The Plague.


I've just finished an Information project about the plague. The idea was a classroom resource for teachers to help make history a bit more exciting. Although the final boxed set had a couple of other things going on, the main idea focused on a series of small pamphlets explaining different elements of the plague in 1665. Each pamphlet included a 3D image which could allow the children to see a historical scene in 3D and bring history to life!  ( and have a bit of fun with 3D glasses)
