Updates slow this week, and have not been able to work on site thus the digital and traditional links still do not work. The reason for being this week was the last week of degree show and the week we get our results back, and i passed everything. I was especially pleased with my B for my dissertation as i was worried how my tutor would react to my subject matter. My topic was on the sexuality of monsters, and the role of female monsters in art and modern visual media e.g. computer games, focusing on the art of masahiro Ito , and the silent hill series. What worried me was my tutor reading my writing on the sexual nature, but i got a good grade so i guess she enjoyed it.
I now have all my work back now, so I will in the next few days be able to scan in my work from degree show, including my sketch collections (selected sketch above). I have also had a few calls this week for interviews one actually this evening and another on Tuesday. Wish me luck.

I have also been thinking about this blog, i'm trying to make it my site but im trying to place in smaller images of my work either at the top or bottom of the page with will link to the image on a gallery page, however no luck so far so i have added a link to my deviant art gallery and will soon add a link to my gallery at ImagionFX, which reminds me the new issue is out and has a great bonus magazine of the new digital arts making waves in the comic world. Theres another point a big hello to all my friends at the bristol comic con, as again this year i couldn't attend due to deadlines.

This character concept is a ink and quill sketch which has been coloured and edited on Photoshop CS2, the paper used is tea dyed paper. The concept for the character was to represent the element of water with the focus on the eyes. Thus i decided to make her mad and angry as the sea which can be calm one moment they a wild storm the next
