In 2017 I entered Jamiroquai's globe art compeition with this illustration of Jay. I was succesful and was one of the three winners of the compeition! Jamiroquai is a huge idol of mine and I was lucky enough to watch his performance at Boardmasters 2017. Im now followed by Jamiroquai on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
Mind charity collaboration
Durning my second term at Colchester Instute doing my Art Foundation course we had the oppotunity to to work on a two week project to develop and create a final piece to be presented at Firstsite Gallery in Colochester public exhitbtion to help raise awarenes for Mental Illnesses.
Collaborating with the charity MIND and developed these five illustrations depicting different mental illnesses that I had create survays and researched about.
I chose to explore ANXIETY, PTSD, BIOPLAR, DEPRESSION, ANOREXIA.
To commicate the complexty of these menatl illnesses I represented each one as a animal. The characteristics of the animals chosen was to help to create this visual connection of how each mental illness could be represented.
The narratives I created myself, Im dyslexic so I stuggle to write and explain things, but in this instant I think I manage to word my thoughts and the thoughts of others that experience these illnesses quite perfectly.
I recived beauty feedback from public even tears, it felt to magical to see the impact and connection people had through my illustration.
