Bacon hearts

For my last uni project i chose a 2 day editorial. The article is about how processed meat increases heart disease risk. Looking into the project i decided to make bacon and sausages into a heart, to represent the grease and fat. Salt was then stencilled into a blood pressure monitor. To define these i drew the images out using crosshatching. The lines at the side represent the blood pressure rising and the colour red, symbolises the danger. I really enjoyed doing this but unfortunately i could not touch the heart after, it looked too disgusting to eat. Maybe the editorial hit me after all. Now to enjoy the beach and wait for assessment *fingers crossed.*

The Erl King

Finally my blog has allowed me to upload these images. Using the images below taken with a film camera i scanned them in and started to work into these 3 pieces to adapt a story. The Erl King being a story about virgin girls entering the woods and getting leered in by the Erl King who takes away there innocence and turns them into song birds. There is a twist at the end, which i have chosen not to give away in my illustrations. But if you would like to read on the story can be found in "Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber."
I have chosen to use photoshop to mix and match photographs and drawn images. I am happy with the turn out. I hope to use this technique in the future and learn new ways to improve it.
