Screen Print

Making *slight* progress with my boxing images project.

Think it’s fair to say I’d lost my way completely with this project. Must’ve had 12 different tutors/guest tutors/visiting illustrators suggest different ways of working/saying they didn’t like different approaches I had been doing. Really didn’t know who to go with, and it left me not knowing what I wanted to do, and I kinda lost sight of what I’d originally intended.

The other day I wanted to screen print a large version of my Drive D&AD entry in preparation for our end of year show, but there’d been a mixup with the printers, and the technician had printed off someone else’s work on my acetate. Seeing as I didn’t have anything with me that day as I’d wanted to screen print, I decided to chuck together some of the drawings I had on my desk, and this booklet type thing was born. I hadn’t originally intended to make a narrative or a sequential thing at all, but all the separate elements I had sort of made a mini story of a fight, I guess.

It got some positive feedback from a couple of tutors, which was surprising, but I’m just glad that I may have found a resolution for this project. It’s not what I originally had in mind, but if it works, I’ll go with it. Really disappointed it’s taken me this long, and got so close to hand in to figure this out, I really should’ve planned it better.

These are my initial pages. Lots of rough drawings and some pages don’t work, so hopefully I can redo them tonight and screen print again at some point this week!

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! What pages don’t work? What kinda do?

Cheers

Made some progress on the group project - Met up with the rest of the group yesterday to see what we’d all been up to, then we decided to assign each other with what we thought were the strongest/best images. So here are the ones that I’ve got - P, R, S, U, V, X, Y. These are more final than the previous images, let me know what you think? Still going to play around with them later, but going to break for lunch I think.
The others are working on theirs and hopefully tomorrow we can get scanning/ putting into a booklet and print out - I like where this is going. Just need to work on the talking presentation bit!
Feedback would be most helpful :)

The following images are pages from a sketchbook which I have just filled.

I signed up to ArtHouse, an american group who organise various art projects. They are based in America, and this is a book to be entered into their “Fiction Project”. I signed up last month, cost £20 to be sent the moleskine book, and another £20 went to them so that they’ll scan it all in high res when they get it (I didn’t want to spend any more time with my scanner than I already do with my everyday doodle book - so these are just photographs for now). Anywho, I’m really pleased that I managed to fill the book, and am excited to send it back - never posted anything abroad before :)

The book will go to Brooklyn, New York, before going on tour to Chicago, San Francisco, and places in Florida and Seattle, which is really exciting (for me anyway :) ) - The book has a barcode, so I’ll get emails/texts every time someone picks it up to read it - and I gave it a new cover, so hopefully it’ll stand out on the shelf. Woop! :)

The theme that I chose from their list was “A Day in the Life” - so I went for a little story about me, drawing inspiration from “Stranger than Fiction” (starring Will Ferrell) - so it talks about little things that most people do routinely in some detail.

I’m a happy Matt - feel all inspired again.

Book 5 (of 7) in a series of Cautionary Tales based on the seven deadly sins.

Book #5 is Lust

I really don’t like this piece, in fact I hate it. Really weak, in my opinion. But you know, I tried doing seven cautionary tales when we were only given the time to do one. If you combine all 7 then maybe they make one fairly decent thing. In the end though, I had barely any sleep, made myself ill doing it and was left with a substandard lot of work and unhappy with my final grade. Still, onwards and upwards eh? Need the time to experiment? Hmm….

*sad face*

Figured I should probably try to upload the rest of these :

Sleeps through everything and misses all the important stuff.
