Illustration at the Plymouth University Graduate Show 2017 – Part 3

This is my third post covering the Plymouth University BA (Hons) Illustration Graduate Show 2017.   Previous posts are here: Part 1 & Part 2

Sophie Downer (Instagram) is an illustrator specialising in character creation.  I really liked her fan art illustration of Eleven from Stranger Things which communicates the mysterious atmosphere of the story well.

Christie Wills’ (Instagram) work is very much centred around wildlife, and she creates illustrations with soft, sketchy lines and calm, muted colours.  I met Christie last year at the Plymouth Arts Weekender and really liked her papercut and watercolour art.

Lily Byron-Martin (Instagram) is an illustrator creating sketchy-style portraits and animations.  She also does branding and design for business.  Her work for Drift Records is really eye-catching and cool.

Lauren Ogbourne (Instagram) specialises in designing patterns, logos and other artwork for events and small businesses.  She has created some really cute and charming designs, like this bear enjoying beer for a craft beer label, and uses different styles throughout her work depending on the project.

Briony Trott specialises in watercolour and children’s marketing. Her artwork for her picture book uses flashes of strong, bright colours and lots of curvy, wavy lines which gives her characters lots of life.

Hannah Bone (Instagram) has a really pretty, cartoony style and uses a lot of warm shades and colours.  Her work on display was narrative based, and focused around children’s books.

I like how Hannah uses only a small range of colours in The Magic of the Gallery to draw attention to the artists and their work.

Anna Bowen (Instagram) creates humourous illustrations with simple linework.  Her caricatures of people on social media in her zine Social Media-ing are hilarious and I really wanted to get a copy, but unfortunately they weren’t available at the Show’s pop up shop!  I was gutted about this because Social Media-ing is one of the most enjoyable zines I’ve read this year.  You can read Anna’s very funny comic Counting Bits here (adult themes warning!).

Lizzie Day (Instagram) specialises in detailed papercut artwork, individually hand cut.  Her piece at the exhibition was based on Greek mythology and showed each of The Twelve Labours of Heracles as if it were on a piece of Ancient Greek pottery.

Illustration at the Plymouth University Graduate Show 2017 – Part 2

This is my second post covering the Plymouth University BA (Hons) Illustration Graduate Show 2017.  Part 1 is here

Laura Hole (Instagram) is a webcomic and zine creator.  I managed to get a copy of Pumpkin Spice from the pop-up shop selling work by the artists exhibiting at the Show which is now in our Zine Library.  You can also read the comic on her website.  Laura’s work is colourful and enchanting.

Sophie Ridley (Instagram) is an illustrator whose work provides social commentary on modern life.  This project was really inventive, with the story told through phone-shaped frames and dialogue shown in messaging apps.

Thomas Simpson (Instagram) draws incredibly detailed illustrations of wildlife.  This page is from his zine Woodland Birds.  Thomas had some fantastic examples of his work on display, unfortunately I couldn’t get good pictures of them as they were in glass frames which reflected the light behind me.  I hope I get another chance to see his work on display, I really like his crosshatching and shading which gives a lot of depth to his illustrations.

Kira Timpson (Instagram) uses soft friendly tones and happy-feeling colours to make engaging illustrations of interesting characters.

Humans & Animals – Character Designs by Lucy Hirst

One of the benefits of going to Graduate Shows is that some of the artists include their sketchbooks in their displays.  Lucy included several thick and full sketchbooks for visitors to look through in her section of the exhibition and I found these as fascinating as the finished work on display around the room.  It is really good to see the working process of artists and how their designs progress.  I would love to go to an exhibition based completely around artists sketchbooks like these.

Annie Gordon (Instagram) is a character designer and animator.  Her character design work gives a good range of expressions and poses and this project had a dark and moody atmosphere.

Dawn Louise Sims (Instagram) had on display these scratchy and scary images of hairy toothy creatures and a girl.  Other work of Dawn’s included nautical themed work exploring mythical beasts and stories.  I would highly recommend a visit to her website to see more of her work, including this illustration of the Kraken attacking Winstanley’s Eddystone Lighthouse.

Tara Prudden (Instagram) combines prints of text and images to create powerful illustrations.  I really liked her zine about Secret Pocket Poetry which was filled with faded and shattered imagery.

20170616_133023

A page from Secret Pocket Poetry – Zine by Tara Prudden

Unfortunately Tara’s zine was not available to buy in the pop-up shop.  This is usually the case for many of the comics, zines and picture books on display at Graduate Shows, as they are final projects and not necessarily produced for sale.  This also means that the only chance most of us will have to view these publications is by visiting the Shows in person.

Another post will follow featuring eight more artists!

Illustration at the Plymouth University Graduate Show 2017 – Part 1

A month ago I went to the BA (Hons) Illustration show at Plymouth University.  There was so much there that I loved that I won’t be able to fit into one blogpost, so here is the first of my posts on the exhibition.

The Illustration degree at Plymouth University encourages students to experiment with animation, comics, and illustration for commercial products like cards and labels.  This is different from the approach at PCA where you choose a specific pathway for your degree from the beginning, e.g. BA (Hons) Animation.  Below are some of my photos of different artist’s work.

Rebecca Hughes had several storyboards on display as well as a monitor showing her animations.  I like the simply drawn characters and warm colours.

Wallace Smith (Instagram) illustrates comics and zines.  I like how Wallace has chosen colours reminiscent of a sunrise for his morning scene.

Emily Mead (Instagram) does greetings cards illustrations with a humorous tone.  The colouring looks like it could have been done in watercolour and the inking on the second image below has a cool, sketchy texture to it.

Chris Perry (Instagram) had on display some dramatic and creepy linocut pieces which illustrate a picture book.  I think the two-tone artwork is very striking.

Frankie Hill (Instagram) illustrated the walls of their display with an enormous creature which really stood out.  I like the different shading techniques they used on their pen drawing of a character with horns and it would make a great t-shirt print.

Hannah Cavaney had character and concept art on display.  When I look at the image below I feel like I have been on a journey and the end is in sight.  The character below is cute and her different expressions make her look confident and opinionated.

Verity Robson (Instagram) has illustrated a picture book about bereavement called Letters to Dad.  Her simple artwork and messages give the effect of being drawn by a child and help make sense of a really difficult subject.

Bratpop gig poster design

lwposterfinal-rgb-web-877x1240

My poster design for a local music gig.

I was commissioned to design a poster for a gig which I am going to be performing at (I play guitar).  The specification was for a ’90s theme and to get it done asap!  I started the project by researching ’90s gig posters.  I used Google images and Pinterest and asked my parents what they remembered from that time.

 

Screenshot_2017-07-05-14-24-31-640x400.png

Screenshot from a Google image search for 90s gig posters.

I noticed that the posters were usually on brightly coloured paper or had bright designs, often with simple lettering and striking single images in clashing colours.  I found a few posters with a similar yellow-orange-red colour scheme which I liked and decided to try using something like that myself.

IMG_20170705_142539-432x432

Posters with a yellow-orange-red colour scheme.

I started to sketch some design ideas to use as the central image on the poster.  I tried sketching band instruments, rock hand gestures, and a “back in time” clock doodle (my sketchbook page is on the right below).  As I played with my sketches I decided I liked the hands rising from the ground and I thought of them as zombie hands (bottom right) in front of a big bass drum moon.  I decided to also draw this sketch in white ink on black paper to see if it looked more interesting that way (on the left below in my black paper sketchbook).

20170705_135641-816x612

First sketchbook pages for the poster image.

I then drew out my design images bigger on white paper for scanning (first in pencil, then in pen using my lightbox) as I had decided to use Photoshop to put together the full poster design.  I did the hands and the drums separately so I could layer them and move them around as individual elements.

“Moon” drum kit in pencil sketch then inked.

I also started playing with lettering.  The bands were asked to come up with a name for the show and one of my friends suggested Bratpop, as a play on the ’90s Britpop movement.  This was chosen as the gig title, and I was given the rest of the text to be included on the poster.

20170705_135732-612x816

Sketches playing with parody band names and lettering from original gig posters.

I hadn’t designed a gig poster before so I had to find information about scaling and file size.  Erin (the woman who commissioned the poster) asked that it be printable at A4 and A3 so I consulted the poster artwork spec sheet here and set up a new file on Photoshop.  I edited my uploaded images that I wanted to use and put them into separate layers, and I dragged them into different arrangements so I could see how they looked.

After choosing where I wanted the illustrations I chose what colours to use.  I chose a yellow background, which I would add an orangey-red pattern to later and added a black border.  Then I chose a blue shade for the hands thinking of my zombie idea and so that it would clash with the background shade.  The hands were in three layers – light blue main, darker blue shadow, and black outline – and I chose to keep the drums as an outline only so that the hands would stand out.

Border, background, hands, and drums layers in Photoshop.

I noticed that the text used in a lot of ’90s gig posters had the title in large letters along the top, and the rest of the information was squashed up at the bottom.  Often the text was in two colours only and swapped their colours in alternating lines (so light against dark, then dark against light).

IMG_20170705_151037-540x540

’90s band posters with examples of lettering.

I added the information text to the poster using this style, and also added the logo for the venue.  I wanted to hand draw the gig title but didn’t have enough time (I was only given a short time to make the poster).

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 14.59.33-352x498

Poster with the necessary information added.

I researched grungy styles in text and textures, and found that a lot of the text was messy, blobby or cracked.  I decided to add a crackly texture to the show title, and I used a youtube tutorial on distressed text to figure out how to do it myself. I used all lower case characters because popular Britpop bands like Blur, Oasis, Pulp, Suede, and Elastica all used lower case in their band logos.

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 15.22.59

My Bratpop gig logo for the top of the poster.

Finally, I needed to create the background pattern.  I found out using another youtube tutorial how to make a halftone colour effect in Photoshop to make the background seem more interesting and have a grungy pattern.  I created a new layer and applied the effect  from the left and right edges using an orangey shade to transparent, which was layered on top of the yellow background.  Finally I brought all the elements together and saved my poster as cmyk files for printing and rgb files for sharing online.

lwposterfinal-rgb-web-877x1240

My final poster design for the Bratpop gig.

I think this project went really well even though I only had a week or so to get it done.  I think the style looks close to other ’90s gig posters and I learned quite a lot from the project, including how to make halftone effects (which I think I’ll find useful for zinemaking) and how to do a distressed text effect.

If you are in or near Plymouth please come along to the gig and share the info with your friends!

 

 

Illustration at PCA Summer Show #BreakingThrough17

Last week I went to have an in depth look around the BA (Hons) Illustration rooms at the PCA Summer Show.  I have written previously about the BA (Hons) Game Arts exhibition and the BA (Hons) Animation exhibition (click the links for my posts).

20170615_150340-612x816

Sophie Clark – Sensory Monsters

Though Sophie Clark‘s main work is centred around illustration (and some pattern designs) the project that she has been working on and has displayed at the Show includes these cute, fluffy, hand made monster toys.  The monsters come from the children’s book she has been working on, There are Monsters in My Head.  The ears of the cuddly monsters crinkle and the large one has a squeaker and a rattle.  My little sister (who is nearly three) really loved these toys and was fascinated with them.

20170615_150508(0)-816x612

Jake Cutler – King Arthur Narrative Concept Art

Jake Cutler‘s concept art on the story of King Arthur makes me feel like the environments he has illustrated are cold and mysterious.  My favourite image is the illustration on the top left.  I love the way the distant cliffs and mountains are covered in mist but you can still see there is a ravine down the middle..  What could be in there?

20170615_150808-612x816

Nathaniel J. Hall – Sunshine

I talked to Nathaniel J. Hall while at the college about his artwork and about his experience on the course.  He mentioned that an animation he created (also on display) was inspired by his “thoughts and feelings about coming to Plymouth” and pointed out that the animation starts off with negative words and illustrations but gradually becomes happier and more positive.  He also told me that before enrolling in the Illustration course, Nathaniel visited and looked around a previous Summer Show at PCA and was inspired by what he saw.  His artwork is normally monochromatic, and Sunshine is one of three screenprints on display inspired by his favourite films.  I love how this one is dramatic, like an explosion.

20170615_143729(0)-612x816

Anita Yip – The Guardian’s Contract

 

Anita Yip‘s work is inspired by anime and manga, and she incorporates lots of geometric shapes into the backgrounds and characters that she illustrates.  A lot of her characters also have animal traits or features, for example this character is wolf-like.  Anita also has on display prints covered in tiny hieroglyphic symbols, and her zine Meep! which tells a funny and endearing glimpse of her life.

20170619_131653-612x816

Joe Mouzourus – Reel Women

Joe Mouzourus was also available to speak to when I visited.  Joe said he has “always wanted to be an artist since secondary school and that with illustration, “you can go in any direction”.  Joe has displayed a collection of posters of films with strong female leads, including this one of Rey from Star Wars VII.  I really like the dry brush style background and in the foreground it looks like he’s used pencils to create a detailed, shaded sketch which really stands out.

20170615_150906-612x816

Nicola Owen – My Visit to Grandma

Nicola Owen‘s work has cute and simple lineart, colouring and shading.  This display contains pages from her comic My Visit To Grandma.  The artwork is adorable but the story is really sad and thought provoking.  Nicola also has some minizines/comics on display and her overlapping cat pattern is clever and humorous.

20170615_152835-612x816

Cosmo Lloyd – Uprooting/Dragon Slaying Character Designs

Cosmo Lloyd‘s work is inspired by medieval and fantasy themes, and her work centres a lot around character design and comic art.  She is the author of a webcomic called Uprooting, which is about “self worth and family issues with a sprinkle of medieval” and a printed preview of Uprooting is on display at the Show.  She uses lots of colours in her work, and creates very detailed and well developed character concepts.

20170615_152759-816x612

Briony Difford – Asian Folktales

Briony Difford specialises in illustrating book covers, and her work is inspired by Asian folktales.  Her illustrations are beautiful and detailed, yet she keeps her colouring simple by using separate individual shades, and leaving out any highlights or shadows.

20170615_151313-816x612

Stephanie Parnell – Legs Occult: Dark Rituals

Stephanie Parnell made this artwork for a small vinyl record sleeve (also on display was a poster version of the same piece).  I find Legs Occult: Dark Rituals creepy and dark but also beautiful.

20170615_151410-816x612

Amber-Louise Crawford – Untitled

Amber-Louise Crawford’s creature illustrations are full of life.  She combines simple, sketchy lineart with heavily shaded and blended colouring.  This creature in the photo above looks like a forest spirit.

There are so many artists I haven’t covered in this post who had work on display, but today is the final day of the exhibition and I wanted to show how brilliant the work on display is so that if you’re interested in the Summer Show, you can take this last chance to check it out for yourself!  I will most likely write a second post about the Illustration show later covering some of the things I missed here, so come back later to look for that.

 

Plymouth University Illustration Years One and Two Show at RWY

20170512_190623-612x816

Poster for the Plymouth University Illustration Years One and Two Show 2017.

On Friday I went to the Opening event for the Plymouth University Illustration Years One and Two Show at Victuals Cafe at Royal William Yard.  The artworks are printed onto long strips of paper hung from the ceiling in double-sided rows so you can walk up and down between them like alleyways of artwork.  I met several of the illustrators whose work is on display and saw a lot of different styles of work.

20170512_181945-612x816

Illustration by Isabelle Hobbs

Isabelle Hobbs is a second year student and she says she usually works on till rolls to make long streams of art.  She told me she focuses on drawing women and their faces, hair and outfits and said “subconsciously I think I draw myself a lot”.  She said that for her “doodling is a natural process, like breathing”.  I like how in some areas Isabelle puts in lots of detail but in other areas her drawing is really simple.

20170512_193312-612x816

Jennie Scampton’s comic illustrated inside a sarcophagus.  In the background are illustrations on the glass window by Isabelle Hobbs.

20170512_182013-612x816

Detail from Jennie Scampton’s comic

Jennie Scampton‘s piece was for a project on narrative sequence and is the first comic she has made.   She said “I love anything to do with legends, myths and history” and so she chose to draw her comic about the Egyptian Gods onto a real papyrus scroll and within the shape of a sarcophagus.  Jennie’s comic is really cleverly done and the story is very funny.

20170512_182526-612x816

Psychotropics by Seren Pascoe-Davies

Seren Pascoe-Davies’ said she did her colourful piece Psychotropics on the theme of Visions.  She drew the line art on A3 paper then added colour using a tablet and Photoshop.  I like the colours she has chosen which work really well together and her curly line work.  The piece feels very dreamlike.

20170512_184211_crop_448x811

Illustration by Iona Desouza

Iona Desouza told me that she is interested in rural traditions and “things being lost”.  I like how this illustration is quite busy with layers of pencil drawn objects on top of each other.

20170512_184116-612x816

Comic by Keir Nicholson

Keir Nicholson‘s comic focuses on a character called Steve the Robot.  Keir described how in his comic Steve goes to work on a normal day but that “his day takes a turn for the worst” and that the story “is about how terrorism can strike at any time”.  I like the limited colour palette Keir has chosen to use and his cute character.

20170512_184620-612x816

Illustration by Sophie Mahadevan

Sophie Mahadevan has two pieces on display.  She described the process of making this print to me, and it is a complicated process involving etching on to a copper plate then dipping the plate into acid multiple times to create layers of depth and make the print look three-dimensional.  She said she had never tried this before and she really enjoyed how the first year of her course was very experimental.  I think the tones of blue used in this make the piece seem melancholy.

20170512_183446-816x612

Illustration by Chloe Drage

20170512_183451-816x612

Detail from Chloe Drage’s illustration

Chloe Drage‘s piece on display is very peaceful and she told me that her goal was to “use nature to tackle depression”.  She usually works in pencil and said “I don’t usually work digitally, so I stepped out of my comfort zone” when working on this piece.  This was my favourite piece in the exhibition and I think this piece would be great concept art for the opening of a video game.  It is calm but mysterious, I wonder if she is a tiny girl on normal sized lily pads or a normal sized girl in a world of giants.

This exhibition is on until the 22nd of May and anyone interested in illustration or what young artists are making in Plymouth should try to go along and see it themselves.  I want to thank all of the artists above for speaking to me about their work. Thank you also to John Kilburn and Ashley Potter who spoke to me about the exhibition and are Plymouth University BA Hons Illustration tutors.

Some of the other pieces I enjoyed at the exhibition are pictured below but unfortunately I didn’t get to meet these artists.  I would be happy to add credit for the art and a link to all of the artists in my photographs below, just contact me and I will edit my post 😀

Edited to add:  The illustrations below are by Plymouth University students Daniele Caruso, Elise Arden-Trew, Sophie Evans, and Millicent Venton.

NatSatClub Devon Dialect Project

IMG_20170322_173527_853-816x612

My final illustration for the word “zart”.

We have been given a project at our NatSatClub to choose a word from the Devon Dialect and then illustrate it.  I made a long list of words, some of my favourites are:

Snishums : Sneezing

Flink : To sprinkle

Zummit : Something

Drumbledrone : Bumblebee (apparently this one was inspiration for Dumbledore’s name!)

I chose to illustrate the word ZART which means “daft”.  I looked up the meaning of daft and its synonyms.  They fell into two main groups, one with words like “stupid”, “idiotic”, and other not very nice words.  The other group contained “eccentric”, “absurd”, “peculiar” and “crackers”, and I thought that this group had a more fun and friendly character, and would be good to illustrate.

I thought about this group of synonyms and tried to make a list of my visual ideas.  I came up with lots including Wonka, circuses, spirals, dizziness, wonky, uneven, twist, and drunkenness.

Next I made sketches with the letters in “zart”, trying different forms of the letters and playing with the sizes and the way they came together.

20170322_174802-612x816

My sketches playing with the letters in ZART

At this stage I had chosen a basic shape I liked.  I drew it out bigger and tried it out as an outline and a sort of silhouette version.  I started adding extra parts, like a Mad Hatter top hat and drunken bubbles popping.  I felt that these would give an eccentric dizzy feel to the illustration.

20170322_174851(0)-612x816

Working with my sketches in a bigger format.

After I had a good idea of what I wanted I tried a sketch using a thick graphite stick to help me make the letters flow better and to be more expressive.  I played with this a bit erasing and adding to it, thickening the letters, changing the way they sloped and trying out stripes.  When I was happy I copied my design out in ink using my Pentel brush pen.

20170322_175221(0)-612x816

Trying my design out with a graphite stick then in ink.

I really liked my design as it was but I wanted to fill in some of the stripes with the black ink to finish it off.  I haven’t coloured it yet but I think that this piece would work really well in a purple shade with either a green or an orange as a secondary colour.  The final black and white version is at the top of this post.

It is fun learning about different words and doing this project reminded me of the Devon Words art project by Caitlin Hennessy which I saw at last year’s Weekender exhibitions and which I wrote about here.  I really enjoyed this project and will definitely be doing more lettering and illustrating with words in the future.
