update ♥

Hello, sorry that I haven't posted in such a long time, I've been busy with lots of different jobs and little projects so I thought I'd post up a quick update about what I've been up to~

Firstly, I graduated from Middlesex University with a First Class Honours in BA (Hons) Illustration! Thank you to all my family, friends and tutors for their support and jacket potatoes it would not have been as enjoyable without them all ♥ (here's a photo of me wearing my hat wrong.) 

I'm working as a freelance web designer alongside being a freelance illustrator, one of my clients was my third year tutor Nancy Slonims from my uni course. Below are some screenshots of her website I built and designed. If you have time please visit it here (it may take some time to load as her scrolly gallery is 50+ images and is best viewed in Google Chrome)

This sunday (9th September) some Middlesex students and I will be working at the e17 Designers which is part of the e17 Art Trail, details can be found here. We will be selling lots of lovely things to buy as gifts or simply for yourself, ranging from cards, bags, tattoos, t-shirts, zines and illustrated books. Please come along if you have the time~

These Y.h bags will be sold at the e17 Designers event on sunday! 

Lastly, I'm starting up a clothing and accessories brand with my sister, it's called "Y.h" (Yin & Hing). We're currently designing and printing and our online shop will be up and running soon, here's a sneaky peek at some of our bags which will be available to buy alongside some lovely t-shirts. Please watch this space ♥! (apologies for the big watermark!)

hopefully I will post again soon, till then take care

the end of a lovely 3 years at middlesex~

After 3 lovely years and the degree show, my time at middlesex university has come to an end and I am now embracing the real world! The show looked great and it was lovely to see everyones' work all together in the Old Truman Brewery, here are a few shots of me and my wall in the show~

I really enjoyed my time at middlesex university, the tutors were amazing and the people I met on my course were so talented and I am sure we will do loads together in the future. I wish them all success! x

depression animation fmp

after 3 years of hard work the degree show is finally here!
if you have time this weekend, please come along : ) details are here.

as previously mentioned, here is my final major project.
it's a short animation about depression and anxiety (mental health).
I tried to convey a non-typical portrayal of what people perceive depression to be, I wanted to try to show people what depressed people may go through in their minds rather than just a hunched crying figure in a dark corner.

I hope you like it x

macmillan children's book competition 2012

It's been a very long time~ Uni projects are now finished and being assessed and all's left to do is set up our degree show : ). Since january we've only had to juggle our final major project alongside a competition, of which I chose to do the Macmillan children's book prize.

My book is called "100 Hiccups!" and here is a little preview of it~
I shall upload my final major project animation at a later date, as some changes are being done before the degree show. I wish everyone luck for the macmillan prize!

On a separate note to arty work, here is my finished and hand bound dissertation~
There was a prize for best presented book relating to their topic, my dissertation was about, "The Portrayal of Masculinity of Western and Far-Eastern Men in Popular Culture: Are Western Men Becoming Far-Eastern Men?", so I bound mine as a gossip magazine : )
