Whad up!

Final week of all the rotations and it was the hardest week i have experienced on the course so far..

I “get” Viscom but i don’t “get” it at the same time its quite hard to explain plus i fucking hate collages and i cutting itty bitty pictures with scissors. I am also severely dyslexic when it comes to writing so spent most of my week with typography flogging a dead horse.

My group started out by bringing in newspapers from the weekend and selecting articles that each of us found interesting, i chose a really uninteresting paper pretty much devoid of any entertaining articles so i decided to settle on a story about doctors getting paid £50 to sign a form allowing old people to die at home thus saving the hospital lots of money this has caused some controversy so i thought it would be a good place to start.

We started by selecting words from the article and creating typography from set templates then we had a class on illustration and i was taught a few styles and different ways of drawing which was interesting.

Our final task was bookmaking and compiling all the weeks lessons into one piece, i decided straight away to make a Flipbook and i made it in the workshop by drilling through thick cardboard and then stitching it through the holes then i drew a little comic of an old man in a hostpital i had some decent feedback on this the only comment was it could of flipped easier and the drawings could of been more clear but then i did rush it.

Hey Guys

Just a quick 12am entry before i drift off!

This week i had my first lessons in 3D for about 8 years. Great fun found it very interesting would love to work more with some of the materials available especially the  glass work and blacksmithing.. have always fancied being a blacksmith!

Some of the art we where shown in the slideshows was crazy, so after going through a few slides and chatting about the different pathways with Design our Weeks project was revealed to us as Counter Crisis straight away i thought this was going to be very similar the textiles task but this time it focused on prevention and cures, For example i researched on water purification for 3rd world countries and also movement assists such as Exo-suits.

But i already had my idea in my head for what i wanted to design as i had been thinking about it all week.

I aimed to create a portable 3D Map creator to be used for Military or Souvenir use, sort of a Map that would point out locations easier then paper but be quick to destroy, i also thought you would be able to use it to show your friends where you had travelled on holiday.

I made a textured map out of sand, coconut shell, and paint then i blew a clear bubble with the air moulder and then crafted the base out of hard foam.

I was happy with the finished project i think it showed what i wanted to do while causing questions.

Thanks for reading,

Kind Regards



Hi Guys,

Project number 3 or 4 I have lost count!

I dreaded this week as all i could imagine was drawing the same endless pages of shit for 2 seconds of screen time, but surprise i actually throughly enjoyed it!

once taught the software it was as easy as point..move..shoot again and again and i started to really get a hang of using the software and basic animating in general.

The weeks task was chosen as Time and we had to interpret it in our own way and create a 2 minute film using any form of animation available

My team worked really hard and we used cut paper to create a South Park looking film based on a timeline of famous events such as, The Royal Wedding, 50 years of Disney, Tsunamis and Bombings.

There was a huge diversity of ideas from all of the separate teams and not one was similar which was nice as they all stood out on their own merits.

I would love to spend a few lunch breaks making my own animation!

Thanks again for reading.
