Spider 1
Spider 2
Spider 3

I am currently working on a non-fiction book cover, at uni. the requirements were a list of animals/ topics and a restricted colour pallet of 3 colours not including black.
I chose spiders as I noticed not many people in my group chose them, most likely as they are pretty offensive creatures and arachnophobia is common.
I have progressed 3 sketches into a photoshop coloured and acrylic and brush pen colour studies.

I Want You Parody

Since finishing my 9 page comic brief, I have been working on a new brief. Based around a toy of our choosing I needed to research and make a poster to do with climate change using the toy as inspiration.My choice was a possibly war hammer ogre that had been left in the student house I currently live at.From there I linked the ogre to Uncle Sam posters by J.M. Flagg:
Thinking he could be a earthy monster (with much reference to shadow of the colossus, PS2 game) and that he needs us to look after the planet. Then on thinking of his character I came to the idea of him being Atlas from Greek mythology. my final piece i think brings together these 4 elements into a poster, based at teenagers and you adults.
