I’ve been going through some of my old artwork and came across a rather handsome dragon…and realised I never uploaded a finished version of my earlier WIP
Paint and wire writing art
I really thought hard about the colours and fell in love with the blue/green one, a little untypical for a dragon, but fit well…as a useless nugget of info when inverted its blue and pink!
Conveying layers in different media, and experimenting with how it could be used on the body.
Yay! I am in the process of setting up an Etsy shop, selling my illustration prints, original artwork and generally other little things which are all very lovely,
Design specs for the Apocalypsis collection which consists of 6 outfits, all of which would be made in responsibly sourced fabrics. Starting on the left, the first is a “onsie” cape in grey and mustard colour thick linen, with a digitally printed hood worn with a simple shirt dress. No 2, is a brown t-shirt in a light cotton and linen panelled trousers that are decorated with blue digitally printed pieces. No 3, is a simple brown pencil skirt, with a digitally printed shirt and a decorative leather body piece.
The 4th outfit is a pair of baggy trousers with 2 layered trapeze t-shirts, that can be overlaid which are digitally printed and the blue one has a detachable hood. No 5, is a fun and girly dress in grey linen with a 2 colour tutu with a grey leather decorative body piece and mustard colour jersey leggings – which are decorated with digitally printed blue pieces and finally the last outfit is a simple trapeze top in digitally printed silk, with an unusual “cutout” floor length cape/dress in bright blue silk.
These pieces are decorated with the textiles patterns shown here.
Apocalypsis design project, using my inspirations of a future post apocalyptic world, modern architecture and body adornment, interpreted with some modern abstract prints in colours that can represent future camouflage, which will in turn be used for decorating sections of my designs.
The image I took from my research to experiment with darker colours, is a piece Harvey Nichols, commissioned Heatherwick studio to produce an installation to celebrate London Fashion Week 1997. I have fallen in love with the work this company produces, one of their more recent pieces being the Olympic Cauldron, for the London 2012 games, if you are unfamiliar with their work check it out it’s amazing.
So using an image of the piece called Autumn Intrusion to experiment with colours on the body, also including design specs of the garment, which can be altered to the wearers’ personal tastes.
Using an image from my research, this one taken from the art exhibition Beyond Infinity by Serge Salat and overlaying a fashion design to experiment with colours, also including design specs of the garment, to show where it can be changed from a “all-in-one” to button up sleeves, which gives the wearer the option to change how this outfit could look depending on their personal style.
