So am fully back home now all ready to crack on with some brand new projects!
Started this peacock painting project about a year ago and got shamefully behind on it during my 3rd uni year so I think now is the time to take it up again: https://sarahkirk.wordpress.com/2010/07/25/peacock/
Am also very excited about the new House of Illustration/Folio Society book competition, last year’s was ‘The Outsider’ by Albert Camus and I never managed to finish it completely. This year we have Angela Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’ which luckily I not only own but also have already done a project on it! How useful!
My battered old copy:

This is a piece for a very quick project that will hopefully be featured in an 80s cult movies zine! Seemed like a classic one to go for would be a Withnail and I montage style scene.. Tried to make the piece seem a bit grubby and scruffy with grey scuffed pencil and yellow paint highlights but wish I had more time to make more of the comedy and expressive aspects.. Still here it is:

So I have gone and finished a new project already! Without even posting one development post..! I will eventually get back to using this blog properly but for now I have very limited internet access so will have to carry on with the post-every-few-of-weeks method.
Anyway this was a recent commission to develop a logo and related imagery for this lovely company:
I have completed some different designs based on one main magpie image, including variations on a frame/mirror idea. As the company spots new play scripts to research and develop, the frame acts as the boundary for the magpie, mirroring him back at us like plays mirror real life. The space created by the frame could also be portrayed as a stage.

This is a project doing a tattoo design for a friend which I shamefully have been doing on and (very) off for several months, however finding myself with no more uni work distractions, I can finally get round to doing these little things that have been in the pipeline for a while. Anyway the plan was to develop the last design of these which you can see in October’s post: https://sarahkirk.wordpress.com/2010/10/08/a-little-dragon-distraction/ into a few more variations:
