elizabeth blackadder

Just looking for some visual inspiration for my weekly drawing task, which is an observation of a collection of objects you own. Elizabeth Blackadder has some lovely illustrations, I admire the choice of colours and textures she uses, and also the way she thinks about quirky compositions and arrangements. I remember studying her wayy back when I did my btech, and now I have rediscovered and fallen in love with her work.

A lovely brand spotted on Asos.

I should really update as it has nearly been a month since I started uni! I've been so busy.

Basically I lived in halls for the first couple of weeks, but now I have decided to move back home and commute. It just wasn't for me and I'm a lot happier now. Hopefully there will be someone who can lease my room. It just makes sense when I'm only in two days a week and an hour away on the train.

In terms of the Illustration course I have been enjoying it and look forward to what it will bring. I've already had loads of work to do with weekly deadlines. During the first year they are really trying to get us in touch with drawing, mark making and still trying and testing new skills. They don't want use to have one style or any gimmicks, as we are still developing as artists.

I'll get some stuff I've been doing up on here once I get decent photos and scans!
