The Story about a Rabbit

Once upon a time there was a brown rabbit that had long hair and long ears and a short tail, and it hopped around the corner. It also hopped around the corner when there wasnt a corner to hop around. Actually it wasnt brown, but rose, and its hair was actually short, and its tail was curly. And actually it didnt hop at all but grunted and dug in the mud. Then it looked muddy and no longer rosy, rather dark grey red. And it had small piglets, they suckled on the rabbit. However, actually it wasnt grey red, rahter grey white, and it had many feathers and a pair of beautiful wings, but it couldnt fly. On its legs it had flippers and swam proudly on the pond in the park, and people, who walked by, threw it bread crumbs. That is, actually it swam under water, had golden scales and a tail with two points. That is, actually it didnt have much of a tail, rather it had two ears and was very fat and preferred to spend a good deal of time in the Nile River. Its mouth had a magnificent row of teeth. That is, actually it was driven by steam, had a propellor behind it and two anchors in front. In the middle there was a chimney, and on the bridge there was a captain who belonged to a Hamburg shipping line. That is, actually he was very small, like to jump as far as he could and sought protection underneathe the clothes of women, and the women scratched themselves.

So this was the rabbit, and this was the story about the rabbit. That is, actually it wasnt a story at all, but a transformation that made the rabbit grow up.

Well then, it was a story, and it was indeed about a rabbit.

Well, that was the story we were asked to look at, and our brief was to basically do what we want to illustrate all or part of the story in order to contribute to a book of illustrations based on this particular story.

HOPEFULLY, it is pretty obvious that I chose to concentrate on the line "[the rabbit] sought protection underneathe the clothes of women". Basically I wanted to create an odd mix of black and white line drawing, paint, photography and photoshop in order to create a slightly bizarre (not sure if thats the right word here?) interpretation of the transformation sequence in which the rabbit takes to womens clothing.

We'll just have to see what the tutors say about it...

I want to live here

Today I made a mistake

I saw your face and I let the memories of you fill my mind
I reminisced through your letters, smiled at the drawings and grew nostalgic because of the poems
I said Always, you said Forever
I just want to know you're ok

I love

these beards and moustaches are awesome


Aspects of love

Another Editorial Illustration basically along the words of how these days parents aren't grieving for their children when they leave home, but instead are having a new lease of life.

The first image was my origional idea but the second is my final idea.

I just saw this comment on and it amused me with how relevant it is to this project

Excessive noise

Editorial Illustration project basically on a guy talking about his hunt for the perfect set of earphones in order to block out the everyday unwanted noise..

I love this website..

Once more he is able to look upon the stars..

Fraudulent- Bottom of Hell

Violent- Lake of ice

Heretics- Speaking flame

Wrathful- Serpent ditch

Hoarders- River of Hell

Gluttonous- Castle of fame

Lustfull- The gates of Hell

Limbo- The dark wood

Dante's Inferno

Project set at uni studying the 9 circles of Hell...

These are only photos of the pieces as I havent scanned them onto the computer yet.. apologies for the rubbish quality

You might be able to tell but I used Vogue as a lot of inspiration for these pieces.. I just think that the women in vogue are beautiful and believe that their poses can be interpreted into whatever you want them to mean.

You can only be young once, but you can be immature forever

People ask me whether I regret my tattoos. I tell them that I don't, 'cus if I admit that I do, they'll see them in the light that I do. Bad

I've always wanted a swan on a rope

I know it's rude to stare, but...

You can always retake a class but you can never relive a party

If you're going to love me like you loved her then I dont want to be loved by you at all

Life is an eternal festival

When I step outside I need a drum roll

I believe in love like they do in Disney films. My husband will be like Eric and I will live happily ever after..

Always laugh, always dance

I like to walk in the rain because noone can tell you're crying

I have clown pants

Cinderella is living proof that shoes CAN change your life

The butterfly that has lived a day, has lived an eternity

Breathe out so I can breathe you in

Dream Project- Thoughts on a Postcard

I love Postsecret books and these books inspired me to create a set of pieces in a similar manner. I asked friends, family and the general public to write down anything. Literally anything. It could have been for example; a quote, poem, lyrics, a confession, hopes, dreams, it could even be their favourite word in the dictionary.

These are a few of those thoughts...

On the weekends we do things like having a raft race on the Brayford..

This "raft" below my feet consisted of 4 storage boxes, 4 planks of wood, several bin bags, many balloons, a few empty frosty jacks bottles, an insane amount of parcel tape, 2 "Good Luck" banners, tinsel and one Union Jack flag.
She was called the Pina Colada and she floated like a dream, however, she kicked us off into the Brayford one too many times... we didnt get further than three seconds from the edge.

Princess Cupcake

This is my actual child, if she were a person she would be a chav - she's so gangsta and a real meany. She also stalks the only straight boy in our house and she doesnt half smell a lot of the time but she's mine and i love her.


Finally decided to make a blog :)
