We are coming to the end of our third and final year of BA Drawing at Camberwell College of Arts and we are trying to raise funds which will be put towards our end of year Degree Show build and a supporting catalogue.

The degree show is something we have been working towards for the past three years, and it would be lovely if we could provide everyone that attends the exhibition with a catalogue of all our work.

With YOUR help we would be able to do this!

Any donations are welcome & we would be extremely grateful of any amount!

I have spent today continuing to develop yesterdays ideas into a more suitable outcome. The drawing I posted yesterday just didn’t seem to fit the idea that I had behind the portrait and the image I had in my mind, so i scrapped it, took the basic ideas from it and started again today.

Below is another photo update of the layers behind the portrait…

The Original Drawing Of Jay Aston (Pencil on Tracing Paper):

A quick photo update…

I have been experimenting with different ways of presenting the initial portrait I did of Jay Aston. Below are the stages, beginning with the original pencil drawing on paper:

The image below shows the original transferred onto tracing paper and framed…

…with the final image having a background worked into it.

Degree Show

Tomorrow we have our first Degree Show related hand in. We have been asked to answer a few questions which relate to the space we would like to exhibit in, how we are planning to exhibit our work and what work we are going to be exhibiting. The questions seemed simple at first … but in actual fact, they have taken me nearly two days to answer and I’m still not 100% sure if I’m ready to commit to just one idea, yet!

Below are a few photographs, showing my ideas and development for the presentation of my work from the last couple of days.

“In the arms of another who doesn’t mean anything to you
There’s nothing much to discover
Does he shake, Does he shiver as he sidles up to you
Like I did in my time?

As you wake does he smother you in kisses long and true?
Does he even think to bother?
And at night under covers as he’s sliding into you,
Does it set your sweat on fire?

Want you so bad I can taste it,
But you’re nowhere to be found.
I’ll take a drug to replace it,
Or put me in the ground.

In the arms of another who doesn’t mean anything to you,
Do you lose yourself in wonder?
If I could, I would hover while he’s making love to you
Make it rain as I cry”

I know, you’ve got me wrapped around your finger
I know, you want the sin without the sinner
I know, I know”
