Self Initiated Project – presentation

My self initiated project is inspired by my love for modern classics and bookshops. One of my favourite things to do is go to Waterstones and look at all the beautiful book designs for hours.

I have chosen to make a series of zines (3 or 5) each inspired by a different modern classic. I will use graphic design/ digital illustration and typography to tell the narrative of the story in a purely visual way.

Drawings of hands

We were all told to meet at the National Gallery and when we arrived we were given a list of objects to draw: eyes, hats, feet… I chose hands. The main reason I chose hands was because they are notoriously hard to draw and I thought I could use some practice.

Flip book workshop

We had to create a flip book that said something about our practice. I decided to make my flip book of a girl blowing a bubble with chewing gum, because I wanted to reflect the fact that my work is quite playful and often inspired by children’s books illustration.
