My latest commission was a video for a society at my university who are called Cardiff Racing. They are comprised of engineering students and build cars every year from scratch to race and compete against teams from other universities. They wanted a short promo video to send to potential sponsors and to give a quick introduction to who they were.
This was a first venture into video and video editing which was challenging but fun. I enjoyed working on the project and learning a LOT about Premiere Pro.
Obviously there are some issues which I am aware of, but overall I am pleased with how it came out and hope that the team are able to use it to get some new sponsors and raise awareness of what they do!
I found some time from goodness knows where to share my little valentines project for Ben with you guys. You might remember my WIP post from November – well I finally got around to finishing it!
I finished it off (at last!), printed it and put it in a little frame with a message on the back. I wil freely admit it’s not the most inspiring thing I have ever made but I quite liked that it was a bit rough around the edges.
I find valentine’s fairly tiring sometimes – seeing countless people posting their teddy bears holding hearts and huge bright pink cards makes me feel a bit sad. I like the sentiment of the day but it does feel like a lot of people trying to buy each other out. On that note I always try to make something by hand, still in keeping with remembering the people we love but without buying any of the commercially made stuff.
Sorry for the absence again lately – life always gets in the way, doesn’t it? I received a couple of commissions in the last month which have taken over my life. Hopefully I’ll be able to share them soon when they are released!
This is a short one from November of Ben and I, done at 3am and drawn after picking up my pen for the first time in months. Maybe I’ll finish it on another late night.
This is yet another interesting venture into a new style of illustration I have been developing a lot recently and one which you will probably see more of!
My family and I did an amazing afternoon trip in July – I’m so glad I brought my camera. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.
