Piano Mountain

Media: Screen Printed pieces A2 size.
done around the start of L3 so...about the beginning of September 

We were given two words randomly out of a hat to research, a place: Mountain, and an object: Piano. I went away and research both of these words and developed them into this. The idea of the brief was to create a poster convey both words as one image and text using no more than 2 to 3 colours. 

I was very inspired a lot by posters i had seen previously by Jason Munn who designs posters using screen printing along with other mediums,he has designed posters for people such as Josh Ritter (who's poster inspired me to create this piece), Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Death cab for cutie, Camera Obscura, explosions in the sky, Norah Jones, The shins and many more.  I love his prints because of the use of simple colours, lines and clever plays on word and image. 

go to : if you would like to see his work, i like it alot!

old camera pictures

All these photos (apart from the one of the camera) were taken using my ilford sports camera its an old camera that belonged to my grand parents and still works! Im just amazed i could even get a picture from it. These are the best of the bunch of pictures go....quite blurry. I think i need to try and get used to using the aperture and shutter speeds in the different types of light. it did originally come with a light monitor but this was unfortunately lost.

Ink doodles.

Media: Black Indian ink and quill pen.

I got bored one night a little while ago and decided to experiment with some ink and my quill pen again, these aren't finished pieces,just little thought.
