'Lead the Way' by Spencer Wilson

At PickMeUp I couldn't chose between two prints by Spencer Wilson. I eventually made my mind up and today my new print arrived!

PickMeUp 2012 at Somerset House

Last Saturday, in aid of Emma's birthday, I met up wiht a bunch of uni friends and headed to Somerset House. We went to look around PickMeUp, which is an annual Graphic Art fair with lots of nice things and workshops to get involved in. As it was Saturday and it was kids day it was pretty busy.
This print is by Mimi Leung. It's my favourite piece of the show, but a bit out my price range :(
  Here's some other work I liked

Below is an Anthony Burrill print which depicts my phrase of choice when looking around exhibits.
And finally a print by Spencer Wilson of the Peepshow Collective. I almost bought this one, but bought another of his instead.

Blog neglect

I've been pretty neglectful of this blog. Sorry about that. I've been real busy with my job at BofAML, however hopefully sometime in May or June I will be moving to London, and I'll have a bit more time on my hands to do more self motivated work. In the mean time here's a post about a show and another about a print.

'Cut it Out' by Noma Bar

Today I went into London to see Noma Bar's 'Cut it Out' exhibition at Outline Editions on Berwick Street. There was a workshop where Noma showed up to use his bespoke die cutting machine to create copies of his work forhis adoring fans. Pretty awesome.

Here are the prints me and my friend Hannah got (SML, Pointed Sense, and Erotic Writing)

Followed by Coffee and Hot Chocolate at Flat White.

Emma @ Maison Bertaux

A couple of nights back I nipped up to London for the opening night of a Haiku exhibition, in which my friend Emma Charleston (blog) was participating in. The exhibition took place in the basement gallery of Maison Bertaux, Soho; which coincidentally sells some very tasty cakes.

Emma had a fancy looking jammy dodger and I, a big fat chocolate profiterole. yuuuuum. (please excuse the filters I was playing around with that Instagram app - they looked much tastier in real life)

The exhibition consisted of several Haiku written by the same author and illustrated by three illustrators with differing styles. Below is Emma stood next to my favourite piece of hers, followed by two of her other peices.

The following pice is by one of the other artists. I didn't note their names sorry - for more information, here is Emma's post.

Internship @ Vivobarefoot

A couple of weeks back in June I completed my first internship! I spent two weeks working at Vivobarefoot for their inhouse design team. They got me doing all sorts; from designing type for a sale window, coming up with concepts for shoe displays, creating a giant twister mat for a trade fair in the US, to designing a promotional flyer. It was real eye opener to how fast paced inhouse design is, and I really appreciate the fact that they allowed me to do real work for such a short internship. The experience has boosted my confidence, and made me even more eager to see what lies next for me.

Sketchbook No. 3

I was woken by a Magpie chattering and scrambling around on my window ledge this morning. Now I'm not usually superstitious, but I'm pretty sure this aint a good omen. There are quite a few knocking around my estate at the moment; despite this, I kinda like Magpies.

Sketchbook No. 2

I miss Brighton & Hove. I had a pretty good view of the sea in my final year of uni; so here's a page of boats on their way to and from Shoreham Port.

Round-up of University Work

I have finished university and graduated with honours. I was not the best at regular postings, so here is a round-up of uni work I did not post.
