I did a bit of drawing too

Even though the actual craft of this drawing is a bit wack, I still like it because of the felt tips and the use of the sketchbook cover. The drawing will also give me fond memories of skating up and down the promenade on Brooklyn with spectacular views of Manhattan.

Here are some crazy doodles of the busyness at the Museum of Modern Art, while I was waiting for my chums to emerge from the bookshop.

I got fed up of the Parade crowds so I left to get a coffee instead and whilst of was sipping away on my Starbucks Cappuccino, I drew the pretzel stand I could see from inside.

Walking around Central Park after the Thanks-giving Parade, I came across this dude playing Sax. Every time a child walked past, he interrupted his own playing by playing a children's tune such as 'Old Macdonald.' I thought that was sweet. This meant that I didn't mind people walking in front of me as I was drawing.

I was furiously trying to scribble kids playing in Central park and I came up with this piece of atrocious-ness. It does look much better now I've scanned it though.

Poster Project Roughs

Here are my roughs for the poster project, where I chose one slogan from a selection and came up with some ideas. The slogan I chose was 'Breakfast of Champions' and as you can see i have gone for the sporting champions of today. I hope you can tell who they are!

New Attack on Cancer with Nano Weapon

This is my final illustration for the newspaper headline. Bit of a funny one as I thought i'd be clever and 'ahead of the game' by starting on my final image before my tutors had seen the roughs. The 'original' was done in a superhero comic book style with big lettering, images jumping out of their framed boxes and a composition that was a bit too exciting for such a serious topic. I didn't want to be seen as taken the subject light-heartedly so after talking to my tutors, I felt it was best to have a mellowed down version as shown below.

Hey Folks. These following pitcures are of my 'map' we had to do following on from the collections project. Basically it is everything and everyone that inspires me. it is my world on paper. It isn't perfect in composition/symbols/clarity, but whatever, I enjoyed making it :D
