Photoshoot adam and eve

For my new brief at university i have to create a photoshoot based around the theme eternal.
I have chosen to go down the route of religion and how temptation is a sin.
I am trying to portray this through the biblical story of adam and eve.

New Competiton

I have entered another competition from the same company, maybe this time i'll be a bit luckier :)
This Competition involved creating a pattern aimed at ages 5-8 for a greetings card / wrapping paper and had to be linked to story telling and dreams.....


I entered a competition a few weeks ago and i was really disappointed when i didn't win.
My design did come within the top 32 out of 200+ though!

The original...

This is a photo of the original Wolf cutout i did! 

Wolf Paper Cutting!

Today i drew this wolf and used a scalpel to cut out the pieces, creating a stencil!
I then shone a torch through the stencil onto a blank wall!
Then added a few filters in photoshop.
Just having a practice with my camera and stuff :)

I Just can't stop with the 1950's!

The is a pattern i made by creating my own swatches and making a checker board
style frame and adding 1950's trend colours!


The first image is the original and i do prefer the original i just tried to change it up a bit so 
it had its own personality! 
I do really like the effect of the glass though!

Working for a real client!

I received an email today from an independent accessories shop.
They asked if i could design a quick poster with a groovy style/feel.

This is what i came up with... They seemed pretty happy and asked if they could get the posters printed!


I've been looking at retro styles lately and at old fashioned labels and stamps.
I decided to make myself a new logo!
