Projects
  • The Deep Charity Prints
    The Deep Charity PrintsI created Prints to raise money for The Deep, Hull 'fighting for survival' due to the COVID-19 Lockdown closure. 60% that I make from each print is being donated to The Deep.
  • Pet's that look like Their Owner's Zine
    Pet's that look like Their Owner's ZineI created a Zine playing on the concept of ‘Pets that Look like their Owners’. This was a fun, humorous Zine to create, particularly standing out to people that have Pet as they can relate to sharing personalities with their pets. I created this Zine using analogue materials, including watercolour, completed with a Risograph printed front cover. I also had this Zine stocked in Warren Record Store in Hull, available for sale.
  • A Troll's Tale-Children's Book

The selected book fort this brief was ‘A Short History of Nearly Everything’ by Bill Bryson. My inspiration for this cover came from the ‘Plot to Kill the King with a Poison Dart’; however, my interpretation of this came froma poison dart also being known as a Frog. During this process I took visits to The Deep in Hull for first hand Observations of Poisonous Frogs. This process helped me to create my outcome using t
  • The Pollinator's Seed Trail
    The Pollinator's Seed TrailThis is a project exploring the issue of Insect Extinction in Urban Habitats. To help with this issue, I focused on how Children can contribute to it. Therefore I created a Seed Trail, focusing on the pollinating insects in particular, and the plants that are needed for attracting each of them. I created an individual seed packet for each Pollinating Insects, including a fun fact for each of them on the reverse side. This is completed with hand sewn seed packets, that slide out of them, made f
