Nighttime Stories

I feel like I haven’t posted in ages! I’ve been a bit preoccupied with life generally, but amidst everything I’ve  been trying to get a move on with the Saughton Stories project too- I’m actually quite pleased with how it’s been going! (which makes a change..)

Soo the above image is my opening page for the sketchbook project, I’ve become a bit obsessed with that type of markmaking recently, it’s very satisfying! I need to really get a move on with that though.. I’m being to precious!

Some of my Saughton images so far:

It’s been a difficult project as my work is completely and entirely not suited towards the whole prison atmosphere..but I’ve given it a go.. I’m actually quite happy with the image- its  quite similar concept-wise to the Leaf Mag images and Duality kind of blended together.

I’ve been doing a lot of work encorporating text into images. This is probably going to be completely different in about 2weeks when I’ve decided it looks too ‘children’s book-like’. again.  But thats what kind of work I do! Why did I sign up for this??

These are just basic concepts at the moment, I’ve gone over and over ideas and this is the one that keeps coming back, so I’ve decided simple is best, and try not to go overboard with pattern and textures.

I’m obviously going to eventually hand-write the letters and sentences, as its a bit distracting with type.

And I’m noticing a definate colour theme today!

Also, one last thing! I found this
