I have been working on a few things to improve my skill at hand rendered lettering. I have decided to create a small selection of letters based on children's stories, this one being Hansel and Gretel, in the victorian illuminated type style. I hope to create many more of these, and I'm also hoping to create some in celebration of one of my favourite books, Harry Potter. More to come of these letters soon!


So it's been a month since I last posted, and I have lots of things to report. Firstly, I have put up my degree show and have finished all of my work! Our results came out on Tuesday and I got a 2:1, which I am really happy with. It hasn't quite sunk in that I will be leaving Falmouth this time next week, ready to join the wider world. It was also my birthday yesterday and I had a brilliant day thanks to my fab flatmates.

This amazing cake was lovingly made for me by my flatmates - Despite the appearance of it (and my cards actually) I was actually 22, not 7!

Another brilliant opportunity I had this week was to work with Natasha, a friend and colleague graduating from UCF this year from my course. She is an aspiring illustrator and photographer, and we decided to have an impromptu photoshoot around the theme of mimes. This is me posing on her bathroom floor! This was a really fun shoot and it was a great way of getting ourselves inspired to do more creative things with the freedom of this small amount of time left at university. Natasha has a brilliant website and for more of her photography you can visit her Facebook Fan page.
