A little bit more typography work from my last project, quite proud of this one. I had been trying to find a way to incorporate typography, illustration and colour in my work on Bauhaus and this was one of my more successful pieces. The word comes from a neon lights I saw in Berlin which read “There is no Time for This” which I think fits quite aptly with my “How Long is Now” images. I feel like my work this project revolved around time, something I don’t feel like a have enough of as a student, especially when you factor in UCAS pressure! On the other hand, I feel that it was also an expression of my inner struggles with choosing my university path, especially my piece on dreams.
I love feedback, so let me know what you think or anything in particular you’d like to see more of. I’ll be posting another Critical Studies Review soon (once I’ve written it) this time it’s about “an artist that inspires me”. Potential candidates include: Chuck Close, Georgia O’Keeffe, and John William Waterhouse.
It’s been a little while since my last post, I haven’t been procrastinating, I have been stressing over the gauntlet that is UCAS! For those who may not know UCAS is a system used by university applicants to apply for university courses. The deadline was yesterday and I’m happy to say that I managed to get my application in on time! I will be back to posting more regularly next week (hopefully), saying that I will be on the radio everyday Monday to Friday this week, but I will try my best!
Following my trip to Berlin I decided to make a series of open screen prints inspired by works I saw while visiting Re: Surgo! gallery. After I had created these A3 prints I added typography cased on street art and quotes I collected.
I am obsessed with typography at the moment so I played around with some serif fonts and scripts, eventually coming up with this design. It sort of mirrors how I feel at the moment, lots of work so little time, including the upcoming UCAS deadline and everlasting wait to hear back from universities!
For my final piece I am going to use one of these digital edits as a cover, and include a collection of my current work which uses typography, illustration and colour theory based on Bauhaus. Watch this space.
