With my final major project under way I thought I'd post a couple of images of my drawings. I've found a style of drawing I feel really comfortable with and have been exited about taking them into repeat print designs for fashion. My concept combines influences from nature, afternoon tea, seaside landscapes and Ghanaian wax prints. These drawing were from my visual language research trips to museums which is another element of my concept, a Victorianism looking at how Victorians spent their pasttimes, seaside trips, collecting things and taking tea. The Ghanaian influence comes from my dissertation and the colonial influences in wax print designs found in Ghana's wax print history. Colour is a major element to, from the rainbow we saw on the beach at Aromanche, France to the beautiful use of colour in the Ghanaian printed cloths. A very big thank you to John Kingsnorth http://www.jk-digital.com/ for taking these photos from my sketchbook for me, they look so crisp!
