About a month ago I graduated from Leeds Arts University with a First Class Honours Degree in Illustration.
It was the most intense, life-changing, utmost creative experience I've ever endured and I wouldn't change a second.
Since finishing the course, I've spent a lot of time reflecting on my creative practice and pondering my ambitions for the future.
Here you can see for yourself the ultimate moment of my degree, a web-version of a mini-publication that consolidates my collection of print & pattern which explores the relationship between colour, nature and interior design.
It targets a customer profile that I designed to align with my dream client/employer's target customer.
To go from 100 to 0 mph after finishing University has been a big, but necessary, shift for me.
However, I've not lost momentum. If anything I have more motivation than ever... I'm eager to delve into the creative industries that I see myself working alongside.
I've undertaken numerous projects, commissions and collaborations since finishing. Collaborating with Keep Real - a mental health charity in Yorkshire - being one of these.
I intend to use this space as a way to document my creative journey from now until forever, and it'd be wonderful if you popped back every so often to have a nosey at what I'm getting up to!
For now, I will develop and refine my portfolio (after bathing in this glorious Summer sunshine).
