But their collections are so awesome, full of colour and texture and textiles and I am literally so excited + inspired to get started and it's really great to have Jenny Postle's input throughout this unit. I feel like this will really help to advance my textiles skills, which at the moment are pretty slim, so for me this is a great project to expand my knowledge.
^ Some of my sketchbook work,
research on 'yago hortal'
We began to put together our moodboard and join our concepts together. We have decided to meet again next week when everyone has collected more research. This will then allow us to create an even better moodboard.
As this is the initial research stage for our live project Jenny took us to the library to gather some research. We looked into different patterns and alot of abstract expressionism. We looked at lines and mark-making and we looked at some really interesting artists.
^ More of my sketchbook work & research.
So now, most of my work is on my bedroom wall above my desk, I like to think of it as a giant mood wall.. I went abit mental with scanning in the library with my research, so until I find a place for it in my head, on my wall it will stay. Which is handy because it allows me to generate ideas whenever I look at my wall!
I'm excited to start developing on my concept and working on my collage and sketchbook work some more and I will keep you updated next week! :)
