My Final Plates.










These are my dinner plates, FINALLY. They took me

a long time to do but are probably the nicest things I've

ever made. I used ceramic paint to make all of the patterns

and then used lazertran paper to put my images onto them.

It's a shame my photos of them are so rubbish because in

reality they look a lot nicer.



I'd also like to point out to anyone who reads this that I'm

really not just obsessed with fish... It's a project...

Final Fish Posters.





These are my final posters for my Big Fish

Fight project. One of them is to discourage

buying intensively farmed salmon and the

other is other alternative fish you should be

buying instead of Cod, Salmon and Tuna.

I am really pleased with how they came out,

however the colours came up completely

different on my computer screen to how they

look on the posters...

Alphabet.





For the Alphabet brief we were asked to take one object
or photo and create an alphabet based on it. I chose this
wierd fish toy I own mainly because I was really excited
to see if I could make a whole alphabet only using the
bodies of different fish. I am really happy with how it came
out. I originally planned to screenprint them all in one colour
and made one A3 positive of them in black. Instead I
changed the colours on photoshop which was much
easier. This is the first alphabet I've ever done and will
defianately be doing more in future.

Salmon Poster Draft.







My Fish.














These are the images that I hope to use for my "Alternative Fish"

poster and I will also choose six of them to put on my plates. These

started off as black screenprint positives that I changed around in

photoshop. Some of them seem a bit garish like this but I hope they

look better against a patterned background.

Plates.















Here I have found loads of plates that I love.

I think it's really interesting how even something

you eat off can be an art form. I want to use

really bright and appealing colours on my

own plates so that attention is drawn to them.

My main aim is to put alternative fish on them,

encouraging people to eat a wider range of

seafood.

"Romance is dead, so is my mother" Zine.








For this brief we were asked to create a small zine based

on photographs we had taken. I decided to illustrate a

few lonely hearts ads I found online. When I had sieved

through all the prostitutes I found these, which I found

hilarious. I used collage because its a quick way to put

a lot of information onto the page.


The photos below are what I used to base my images

around. I wanted them to look really mundane and

ordinary so just took them around my mum's house.


...Not saying that she's mundane.
