This is a potential draft to what my book cover could look like. With previous projects, I enjoy using a container to house an image inside. I am still debating on what is to go in the image but as it stands, I will focus on the three main characters.


Design for a creature from my story. This creature is as tall and as wide as a mountain but it is very docile. Not many are seen in the wild and are lonesome creatures.

Pen, photoshop and collage


Here is the design for a starship design that my main character is tasked to complete whilst on a journey towards a weeks holiday. I took reference from my other images such as the patterns and symbols.and used them in this image. I created a theory and basis behind these circles and lines and why they are in a lot of my sketches. Here is the passage explaining what the symbols mean, ‘

When I was growing up with my parent’s’ he began to say, ‘I was always so fascinated by the designs on my bedroom wall, they were so fluid, so majestic in their forms, I wanted to know where they came from. One day whilst my dad took me to the edge of the city, I looked up at the decaying monuments that stood tall and noticed that they bared the same markings as my wallpaper.  So I asked my dad what they meant. He told me that many years ago, before the cities, there was an old race of people living on this planet, these symbols and markings represented words and letters so that different tribes could distinguish themselves from each other. As I grew older, I noticed that the same markings began to appear on my tail, my father told me that these indicated my name and the names of my family before me. I have been fascinated my them ever since and asked my dad for books so I could learn what the symbols meant for myself. This all stopped when I went to live with my uncle, but my love for these markings never stopped. That is the basis for the design of my starship; I wanted to incorporate these traditional symbols with modern technology. I wanted to put my heritage and new love of buildings into this design and feel that I have achieved that’

I used photoshop and collage for this image.

These images are a continuation of a project I am currently working on for a story I am writing at the moment. This is a scene where the main character has been stood up at the annual timra ball and is left alone. Again I used biro pen and scanned it into photoshop and added a pattern layer to create wallpaper.


Here are the last stages of my poster design. I decided to change certain colours as I felt they weren’t working well. Once I was happy with the way it looked, I still felt something was missing. I work with a lot of collage and different textures so wanted to incorporate that into the background. I looked at my finished article and it was definitely something I am pleased with. Unfortunately I didn’t win the final prize but it is definitely something I was proud of and would do again.


The next few stages of the poster design, as I was happy with the new colours, it just a matter of adding more staff members that I had previously created in photoshop.


Here are the next few stages of the Bonus poster. To create the people, I sketched them out in biro and scanned them in. To create their uniform, I simply scanned in my own uniform to add texture to their clothes. After adding two members of staff, I felt that the blue and red words were round the wrong way and didn’t feel right. This was quickly changed and I felt it worked better the other way round.


Here are the next few stages of the poster. Taking the text I had scanned in, I wanted to use a similar colour pattern that Waitrose and John Lewis use in their company. I also used existing John Lewis wallpaper as a layer for the text.


Every year the Gazette (a free magazine which discusses news about Waitrose and John Lewis) hold a competition to design a poster which will reveal the annual bonus at work, something which everybody who works for the partnership very excited. I did enter it a couple of years ago, and after looking back at it, I used the wrong medium (paint). This made it feel very dark and unclear. This year however, I had photoshop. This allowed me to create a more professional look. The idea behind my poster are partners climbing up key words (associated with the company and the ideas they try to achieve) to reach the bonus. It will show what people will do to achieve a target.
