Final Major Project: Some Drawings...

Some of my initial drawings for my FMP. I am going to try and mix the imagery up within my drawing sheets to make them more interesting as I think the top one is the most successful drawing sheet so far combining African beetles and ornate ceiling moldings.

As my project has progressed I feel my concept has developed and become clearer, I now realise that it is very much based on different cultures within the world as I have been using imagery from various parts of the world: Florals - typically English garden, Insects - African/ Middle Eastern, Ornate patterns - Palace of Versaille, Bright Colours - L.A/ Vegas/ Blackpool illuminations! Bit confusing but that is what is in my head at the moment!

Preparation for Paris

Last week I submitted fashion prints and embroideries from my last two projects to be exhibited at Indigo - Paris which I will be visiting in February. Fingers crossed they get picked to go! Whilst there we will be looking for future job and placement opportunities by handing out promotional material and hopefully making contacts within the industry. It is also the perfect place to get inspiration for my final major project by looking at current designs on the market.
