That's the sound of some momentary relaxation after 11 weeks of Final Major Project stress! I finally finished it, leaving a nice round week until hand-in for lots of printing stress and jazzing up my sketchbook a bit.
I'm quite pleased with how it went - the book spreads have, in the most part, turned out how I wanted them to, and I got to get back into some nice watercolour painting. Also quite proud of my time management skills, as I've been strict with myself and managed to stick to a pretty rigid timetable, with an uncharacteristic lack of procrastination!
I didn't get awarded anything in the Macmillan prize, but am interested to see the winners and highly commended illustrator's work - did anyone win or knows websites of those who did?
So uni is almost finished, with 3 exhibitions to go before I am free from education at last! I'm really ready for it to be over, and looking forward to getting stuck into freelance illustration.
As promised [at last!], here's a few little peeks of some of the spreads as works-in-progress - excuse the terrible phone photos!
Also a big thanks to Tigerprint who featured me on their blog this week!
