heres a bit of the new project, for which we have to illustrate a quote…….
i cant remember the one im meant to be illustrating, but its to do with fossil fuels and them running out, so i went up to the welsh valleys near my house and took photos in the old coal mining towns and places like that.
we also went to big pit, my dad took this (i couldnt get out of the car) with his exellent camera
i bought these lovely things…..
I FELL OVER.
Deadline is tomorrow, and im MILES from finishing, heres what i have so far….
For my final piece Im making a journal/guidebook for visitors to London, Im using rescued and recycled papers for the pages and embroidery and collage for my guide pages. Rather than information about the more obvious landmarks and tourist spots ive used places/things i like visiting, places I would recommend to others. The blank pages in the book are for the owner to write/draw on with their own favourite sights.
So far i have 4 pages finished… below is 3 of them (dont have any good pictures of the 4th yet!)
^ this is bits of the old london A-Z i got hold of, tis beautiful 🙂 (maybe not surrounded by masking tape…)
^ here is one of my finished pages, a map to the Dolls house on the hill in Harrow, complete with nearest tube station.
^^^Southbank page. Im not sure about the layout but im so pleased with the map. it took a WHOLE SODDING DAY.
^^ these are the Elfin oak page, again there are bits i like and bits i dont, but i think everyone should genuinely look at the map and go and see it in Kensington Gardens………… cos its pretty like!
Oh also, just so you know after this book is finished (and marked which will take a while…) Ill be selling it on Etsy, along with another I made for this project and a few other bits from this term, like the black tote from the Deep Space project. (see the deep space blog post)
Happy happy days i get a new camera for xmas!
For the deep space project we were meant to firstly create a world ‘on our desk’.
I got the idea for mine from places like container city, buildings stacked up and fitted into a small space.
We were also meant to ‘populate’ the world and put it into context so i did this…
I guess its about escaping from the city? Something like that…
We also went to the british library last week, where I didnt take any photos but I would recommend it, especially the treasuries exhibition, there was some interesting stuff in there.
i went home last weekend, me and my brother played saga and chess.
he has cool stuff^^
