The Proof is in the Sketching (Book)!

Here is a bit of a pictoral update, with several combined pages of the swimming man character as different things (originally I had the idea that he could be the phobias, but this meant even more characters to be affected)... but you can see how easy he is to draw and that I enjoyed having him as a focus.

(clockwise from left) Climbing a tree/beanstalk,
drinking a massive mug of tea, ghostly swimmer, swim-sect, heavenly swimmer, bacteria (not pizza), a cat and a Halloween mask.

(clockwise from left) Balancing on stilts, feeling claustrophobic, look I like ghosts, beeeeees and fish, snow-swimmer, round head filled with drink, hello - my name is.... and a dendrophobe at work.

Super Swimmer says....

I haven't been on much lately because each time i try to load images it won't work, and apart from that I've not done a great deal more on Final project but now that I have a digital camera I will be doing more quick stop-motion nonsense once I get back to Norwich, especially now that I've moved my desk around and have more space to play!

I'm home for this week (got back last Saturday) and will go back by train either on Sunday or Monday in time for new year parties in Norwich... then recover and work, work, work!!!

Happy Holidays!

Just keep swimmin', just keep drawin'...

I have been doing work...honest, it's just I haven't made time for blogging about it, hopefully I will add images to this post soon, or make a new one, because I have been scanning in most of them so far.

I have focussed on the Swimming Man and have drawn various different costumes/situations/water-related objects for him.

In other news: I haven't done any Christmas shopping because shops are stupidly busy now, I've been doing things for the NSAD Christmas show to sell some images in little frames, see if anyone would buy them, and going on the internet a fair bit in between eating and drinking. So, not too much dissertation either... oops!

Anyway, I shall endeavour to upload some pictures of my current work, and maybe afx a little something or other soon too.

No Running! No Bombing! No Heavy Petting! No Dinosaurs!

So over the weekend I did some walking about town (which was a mistake, this close to Chrismas the shops are horrendous to be in) and renewed my library books at the Forum which I've had for 3 months now...... I shaved my beard off as it was getting to much and I haven't got round to buying a trimming set like Joseph/Dad.

I transcribed the interview with Lloyd Burr, which took forever, and it was quite interesting to listen and note down speech as it really is, because there are so many times when sentences aren't finished and words are cut off, so writing that down took a while but Hannah's done her half so we can share resources.

I haven't done a great deal of work on the Phobias film but I've done a couple of drawings, including this one just now of a T-Rex and a swimmer man, I like him, he could be a recurring, if not main, character... I like the simplicity and he's got no nose which might be another reason that I like him.

Last week of term started today! So, that sucks as well as being good, but I just want to stop time and do all my FMP or all my diss and then start it again, it's not fair that we have to write an essay, we're art students we make finger paintings!!!
