Long time now blog..... So since my last blog, I had my exhibition, I got my final grade, I've moved back to Northern Ireland and I graduated on Friday there. I have been job hunting, went to Glastonbury and even went to see the tall ships in Belfast.
Yep, a lot of stuff has been happening in the past month!
Here's a few images from my exhibition show, which was a huge success. although I didn't get to sell any of my little playing cards :(
so for anyone who reads my blogs and would like to purchase one of the deck of cards packs, please get in touch!
Here are some of the very, very few images I took at the exhibition. sorry there isn't that much to see! It was a really great night, there was so much to see and I have to admit I wish I had gone back during the public opening to really have a nosy at all the work there!
Here are a few pictures from my graduation, I was awarded a 2.2:
It was a great day, super tiring, however completely fantastic!
So at the moment my plan is to just get a job to help out with bills, while I continue to do my art in my spare time. Even to start looking for an internship. So yea, I'm at a very exciting and scary time of my life. In saying that. I'm unsure of how often I will be blogging. I will at least aim for a weekly blog instead :)
So yes, bloggity again in a weeks time :)
Firstly Happy New Year! hope everyone had a good night last night, and your heads aren't pounding too badly today. This is my first blog on my new website. As you can probably already tell, the website it's self is still being set up and I am slowly but surely putting up my work as well as some new work.
To explain my new name Craicin Designs. I wanted to be known as a "Norn Iron" artist. So Craicin, being Northern Irish slang for "cracking". It's more of a play on words. I am hoping this will be a new beginning for my art as well as myself.
I am currently in my last year of university, Soon I will have to be an adult and get a big girl job. I have had a few problems with getting started and really trying to find myself in what I want to do within art. One of my problems have been, trying to learn too much and do too much. This being a problem as I haven't really been able to specialize in anything. So I have taken a big step and decided to keep things simple and keep to my photography and illustration. I am aware I have spoken about this before on my previous blog.
So I am up for doing more photoshoots, working with new people within the industry and if anyone wants to work with me, on either. As a model, make-up artist, hair stylist, fellow designer. Or simply wants to give me a job. Awesome!
I will be a very busy bee the next few days as I have 3 different deadlines for 6 different pieces of work. To be handed in before the end of the month. This includes 4 book cover competitions and 2 images for ViewBug competition.
I shall leave you with one of my favorite images I took nearing the end of 2014. I know Christmas is over, but I don't care :) Again guys Happy New Year!
