I thought I would do a post documenting my time screenprinting in the Gray's textiles studios. I have been interested in working with textiles for some time now, and love the way my illustrations work on them. This was a really fun few days, figuring out the screenprint process, and trying different illustration variations.
I produced a tote bag, A4 size prints and a series of patches. Thanks to those who picked up one of my patches at our pop up shop at Degree Show!
This is the collection of gifs on an iPad as part of my exhibition wall.
The Gray's School of Art Degree Show is now open! You'll find my stand in the Communication Design hall. We also have a pop up shop selling a huge range of things like zines, prints and patches. Treat yourself!
This week, I completed some wall art for a local bakery opening at the weekend. They were going with the theme of "Wonderland" and wanted some flowers, mushrooms and basically something bright to liven up the place.
It was a really quick process, having been asked to work on it only two weeks ago, and balancing it with my Uni projects, it has been quite a challenge.
I started off with some sketches, and developed those into a number of ideas for the walls. The it was just a case of taking these with me, and working out when I got there what would go where, and completing them!
I hand painted them with acrylic straight onto the walls, which is time consuming, but I am pleased with the result, especially the mushrooms!
Moray District Netball
In my own time I am doing a quick project for the Moray District Netball ladies, designing their logo. These are my current ideas! I'm enjoying having a go at logo design, it's not something I have done a lot of, so it's really good experience.

I recently came across this artist through the app Instagram, which I find is a great way of finding new artists and designers, and getting a constant feed of inspirational work. Her style is illustrative and abstract, and she uses a mix of bright colours and muted tones and various different media.

I recently undertook a commission for Scribbles Pizza House, a restaurant in my home town Elgin. As part of that I was asked to paint a mural onto one of the restaurant walls. It took me around 6 hours to paint, and I used paintbrush and acrylic paint.
It was quite unusual getting used to painting at such a large scale, but I really enjoyed it, and is definitely something I would like to try again.
