My friend got a book from her auntie for christmas and she knew i'd like it. Weirdly its full of jellyfish and other sea related plants and bits. She kindly let me lead it so i could use it for research. Even weirder, if thats a word, i follow people who post artist work on there blog and today they posted some of the work from the book!

I contacted Ian O'Phelan after really being inspired by his website and flickr account! He makes patterns with alot of themes that I'm really interested in. I asked him to look at my work and tell me what he thought:
Weirdly I was just stumbling and searched 'pattern design' and my 4th or 5th click brought me to a pattern designer's website who I immediately liked when I flicked through the portfolio on his site. So i googled his name and this pattern with what looks like jellyfish came up, which is one of the themes I'm thinking about choosing for my personal passion brief.
More of his work HERE.
I went to Mr. Scruff at band on the wall for New Years Eve, I love the graphics he uses, I've always noticed them but i actually got to watch him live last night and it was amazing. This is an old video but has some of the graphics he included in his set. Simple but effective. The way forward in my eyes.
