Big Update!

Oh wow, so much has happened since my last post!

At the beginning of May, I went to New York with my course. It was absolutely amazing, and definitely gave me the travelling bug! We had the opportunity to show our portfolios to some amazing publishers and agents, and I got some great advice and feedback.

Not long after that, I handed in my coursework for the last time, and set up my space for the degree show! Now, I am well and truly nearly a graduate - which is scary, but also very exciting.

The private view for our show is tonight, 6 - 9pm (if any one of you is coincidentally in the Falmouth area, ha!), and goes on until the middle of next week - pop along if you can!

I will also be updating my website soon with some work I have done recently - amongst other things, I worked on a little advertising campaign which you can see here: https://www.facebook.com/IamProHeart , which was super good fun (my work is the informative illustrations, I particularly liked drawing the man on the bench!).

Hopefully I'll be able to update you on more of my projects soon - I've got a couple of things going on, so stay tuned! I'm also thinking about selling prints more seriously now, so if any of you have anything you would particularly like to see me selling, let me know!

New Website!


As of right now, my new website is up and running. Go check it out at: www.ellabailey.co.uk, and let me know what you think! There's quite a few bits and pieces that you won't have seen before, too!

I'm also working on a couple of exciting projects at the moment alongside my university work, hopefully I should be able to tell you more about them in the future!

Update!

I think it's about time I give this blog an update! A few points:

- I'm working on a website! It's not online at the moment, but when it is you can find it at www.ellabailey.co.uk (I'll post about it when it is live!).

- I've had a lot of questions about where you can find prints of my work; the answer is nowhere... just yet! Again, I'm working on getting a few things together, and you should hear more about that very soon.

- Lastly, I'm sorry I haven't been very interesting this year, final year is definitely living up to it's reputation! Hopefully I'll have something to show for it soon though (pretty pictures!).

Here are some little sketches for now!




You may recognise this last little guy from my new header!

Wildlife








Here's a bundle of pictures to make up for not having posted in a while! Some more bits and pieces from that bird project (I said I wouldn't post more, I lied!) and some deer.

I think I'm starting to get a better feel for how I make my artwork - which is good, I'm in third year now  after all!

Smews are my new favourite ducks



 Smews are my new favourite ducks.

 A Mandarin Duck.

 A preview of a much larger picture (it just needs a few tweaks).


Just a few peeks at what I've been doing lately (it's mostly sketches and experiments) - hopefully I'll have some finished things to post in the next few days.

Cushions!


Here's something a bit different for me - I entered into the cushion design competition over at ohhdeer.com.  Go take a look at all the lovely entries here: http://ohhdeer.com/competitions/pillow-fight :D (and if you like my designs, maybe give them a like or a tweet, or whatever the cool kids do nowadays).
