This is the other editorial illustration that I had to do for college. The specifications were that it had to be collaged and it had to be in the style of a set list of artists. Mine is digitally collaged and is an image of Benjamin Zephania and his grandmother sitting on their veranda in Jamaica, which it says in the article is one of the best times in his life. The text on the veranda is made up of one of the poems he has written. It's not one of my best pieces of work and I found it really hard, especially to do the figures.... I don't think I would make a particularly good editorial illustrator but I'm glad that I have had a go at it as it's good experience!

These were the drawings that I produced in the second toy drawing workshop at college- we had to use the same toy and make a 3 drawing sequence in which it 'evolves' and comes to life- I drew bunny dreaming about being a pirate. The drawings are all pencil drawings.

Last week it was anti-bullying week and the college was running a competition to design a badge to give to a local primary school on the theme of anti-bullying. I was sitting in the cafeteria with some friends when a member of staff at the college came over and asked us to take part. As it was for a good cause we thought we'd have a go as all of the badges were going to be given to local children. It was a bit spontaneous and quite difficult given limited time and materials but I got a phone call the next day saying that mine had won :-) I got to go with the college representatives to present the badges to the children which was a really great experience. You can see the article about it on the college website here or the college facebook page here. (My badge is the one with the bunny on it)

I took part in a drawing workshop at college as part of our current module. We all had to bring in a favourite toy to draw. This is one of my drawings- it is a pile of everyone's toys together.
