Self Portrait

Using pencil crayon is something I discovered I could do in one of my life drawing classes. So I decided to incorporate this into my self portrait, placing the words to best describe me within my hair.

Words on Books

I wrote the word "explore" into the pages of this book, although it did not turn out as well as I'd hoped I think the idea behind it was strong and if it looked more visually pleasing it would have been a much greater piece of work. 

Pussycat, Pussycat.

With some heavy influence from Rob Ryan I decided to create this for the visual poetry topic of my course. I used the white on white paper because I just love the shadows that are created. Considering it is all hand cut, it only took about an hour. 

Here is another of my outcomes. I took a poem by Tim Burton and transferred it onto this bag. This was not just about the image itself and how it looked but more about the functionality of the piece.
