Cambridge Amateur Dramatics: Sense & Sensibility

Shameless plug for a production of Sense & Sensibility my sister is putting on at her University in about three weeks. She asked me to help out on poster/programme/tickets, and to make something in a similar style to the book project I worked on.

If you're in Cambride on 17th/18th June go check it out.

'10 Things' the set...

Finished the '10 Things You Should Know About Surviving A-Level Art' project. Took some shots of the finished set.

This is the case that the disk containing the pdfs comes with. Back side is thickened out with greyboard, also making it safer to hold the disc.

Upon inserting the disc, teachers are presented with a piece of software that allows them to navigate through the diagram and all 10 pdfs, and choose which one to print.

Cover Competition: The Lily

This was made for a cover competition during my time in 6th form. The competition was to design the cover for the school magazine (which is titled The Lily after the school motto 'Sicut Lilium'). The school colours are red and black and I ran with the theme of Lilies.

I won the competition though don't have a physical copy at my disposal to photograph and show.

10 Things You Should Know About Surviving A-Level Art

Finally some more up to date work to show. Working on a 10 segment guide to help 6th form art students understand what their Art & Design course asks of them, and how they can tailor the criteria to do things they're more interested in. I've developed a diagram of the course to help navigate around the 10 segments. The bottom image is a sample page for the first assessment objective. Click to enlarge. Watermarked so I don't accidentally submit the wrong draft.

An Orchestral and Choral Concert...

Made this piece in my final year, advertising the school concert at the Sheldonian, Oxford. Had the pleasure of playing in the concert as well.

The 'headlining' piece of the evening was the 'Masquerade Suite' by Katchaturian ( which is why the theme of the poster revolved around the masks on the faces of the famous busts surrounding the building. The African mask was chosen to suit the piece 'African Jigsaw', performed by the Junior Choir later in the programme.

This was the final piece of my AS-level course. A pixelated self-portrait. It was made by pixelating the image, limiting that down to only five colours, and allocating a different shading style for each of the colours depending on how dark it was.

It's not perfect, and in fact the 'test' I did before this exam piece was better. Wouldn't mind revisiting this method to make something else though.

Until I produce anything worthy of showing for this project i'll continue to delve through the back catalogue of previous work I produced before starting uni.
