Scarab Beetles

I drew these for my friend Elli's 21st birthday. They were drawn in pen. So happy that she liked them :)

So who are you?

So here's another piece for my new designers board. :) So from yesterday I am now a proud owner of a BA (hons) Degree in Illustration from Falmouth University- mega chuffed! Aswell as this piece i have been drawing some scarab beetles which I'm really proud of- plus they all grew personalities while i was drawing them. I will have them up soon.

Mime Nostalgia

A few more images from the mime shoot. I went for black and white for these with a tiny tint of a warm filter to create that nostalgic feeling. There's a few more photos on their way but if you have facebook add me on natashaaldredphotography to see more :)

So today, i got an idea for a mime shoot. Here are some of the images although there are more to come. I focused on pattern, texture and facial expressions. This was so fun and the model truly got into character. The make-up and styling was done by me and parts of the outfit i made too. It's been a while since i've done a photo shoot as my degree and creative illustration work has been distracting me. I really like the layout and composition of these ones and could maybe see the bottom one as a album cover. Check out the models blog-
Got my degree private preview evening tomorrow- excited and not long till we get our results. *fingers crossed*

So worth it! Think I'm getting a little addicted to blogging.... toodles!

MIrror Mirror

I'm in the process of making a small zine. This is part of the cover- unfinished, still missing something in the middle and i can't seem to get the type right (a little annoying.) I forgot how much i missed drawing in detail. Would love some feedback :)

Wolf Skin

Thought I'd let you lot see what I've been doing today. I thought I'd play around and experiment with some of the feedback i got from New York, which was to work over my photographs with the type of line i was using for my horoscope images. This isn't finished yet still needs some tweeks and a few extra things added but i like how it's developing.

Bat Girl

A character designed today. As part of the brief i was only allowed to use black pen, it's wierd for me not to have texture. I think i may work into this and add some collage and photomontage to add colour to her. Bat Girl with a twist.

Framed bat skulls

I'm becoming a little obsessed with animal skulls at the moment. I really like the largeness of the eye sockets on the bat skull. These are just a few experiments... nothing final but i just liked certain areas of them. Really enjoying this and practising with a few photoshop techniques. Let me know what you think?

Candy Apples

So my degree show is up and I'm waiting around for results. I'm feeling quite creative at the moment so I thought I'd attempt to take on some of the feedback that i recieved at the New York meetings. So I've been playing. It still needs some work and practise but i kind of like it where it's going. Let me know what you think?
I also had an email yesterday from New York based, Astonish magazine, who me and gemma contacted for feedback. They asked us to collaborate to illustrate 3/4 garments for the new season which they will send to us. We're both really excited! can't wait :)
Watch this space!
