Professional practice that has shown to be hardworking, productive and reliable, clear understanding of design concepts and process', efficient and good communicator in response, open to suggestions/constructive criticisms and flexable in approach, quick turn around with consistant and appropriate artwork as and when needed

Efficient Photoshop and Paint Tool Sai skills

Watercolours are my main working method, however I can use digital art programs with a pen tablet for programs such as Paint Tool Sai to produce artwork and Photoshop for editing, effects and clean up as and when needed to good effect.

Showcase

07/01/2013 - 07/05/2013

New Designers - 2013

Role:

Exhibitioner

Location:

London, UK

After finishing my final year I took part in New Designers 2013 along with my other classmates to showcase our work. It provided a platform for new/recent graduates to set up their pieces and meet not only potential clients for the future, but to meet like minded artists who are also starting out. I can say that even if I wasn't showing my work, New  Designers is a great show to attend! There was a lot of inspiration to take in and getting to know certain names for the future was very useful. It was here that I met the representatives at Gold Word Publishing who published my adaption for that year 'Icarus: The Boy Who Flew Too High'. So overall it was a fun experience that provided a great opportunity, if not to showcase I at least hope to go and visit again in the future.
