In September I started my MA in Sequential Design and Illustration. One of the first projects I was tasked with was creating a visual narrative in response to Ursula K Le Guin’s essay The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction. The final pages for this comic were produced in a week and looking at it now I’m not really sure how I managed to do that.
A diary comic written shortly after the death of Kazuki Takahashi
More experiemental work.
This is my final uni project; I wanted to make a sort of graphic guide to Guy Debord’s 1967 book “Society of the Spectacle”, taking critical parts from his writing and contextualising it for a contemporary audience. Above are some of the pages from the book. At this point, it’s “done”, but it is something I’d like to return to later in the year.
Sometimes it’s good to break away from the norm, and that’s what I’ve been trying to do as much as possible this year with my work.
Experiments from March and April for a more streamlined way to make diary comics.
I’ve been working on some pieces under a different guise for a project based around a single character (and some yet to be designed supporting characters)
These paintings, illustrations etc can be found on Instagram over at @anaseed_art
Experimental piece from a month or two ago, a silent comic drawn without pencils or planning.
Hey, I started a Youtube channel for a short-form version of my VR Troopers podcast with the addition of animatics, I’ll also be uploading other (VR Troopers related) content to the channel moving forward.
I’ve been experimenting with vintage style illustrations lately, I’m pretty drawn to making fake ads in a 60s looking style for modern age things.
I finally got the opportunity to make something with a Riso printer!
A small edition of 3 zines with a combination of original artwork, detournement, and passages from some radical books.
Again, this was another uni project. But it allowed me to get to grips with Riso printing and I’m eager to do it again in the future.
