Book Jacket project

One of these may be the final book cover for this project. It conveys the idea of Johnny Bear as a human gramophone. I've also based it on the Saturday Evening Post covers done by Norman Rockwell in the 20's and 30's, which in my opinion along with the grammaphone gives a sense of time and location. Please help me reach a conclusion, comment.

Otis Redding

A composition of the previous images that i uploaded. Influenced by the work of Kuntzel and Degas (Best known for producing the opening sequence to the 2002 film catch me if you can, watch it on youtube its really good). I like it because it has an identifiable sixties feel to it, which suits the timeframe of the project.

Summer Project

Sent summer project from Maidstone. Basically produce a sketchbook using a variety of media while exploring the theme "My Personal Space". Made this paper cutout on friday, then experimented with lighting to create mood and effect. In case you're wondering its supposed to be my living room. One image with the television on and the other with a warm cosy fire during the winter months. I quite like the effect :)
