These were some really fast sketches I did this morning but they turned out nice. The original drawings were A1 pen on plain white paper then I snapped a picture of them took them into Photoshop desaturated, inverted and adjusted them to come out like this. Very quickly thinking in the negative is great fun, when shading becomes lighting the tables are turned. It's interesting to play with line weight too. Just thought I would put it out there and recommend you try it if you haven't already but don't cheat and draw in white on black paper, the experience is completely different.

I have now finished my A Levels and am moving on to University at Oxford Brookes to study Architecture. I still plan to keep drawing in the same style in my free time. I am pleased to say that I was successful in Achieving full marks in Art at A level.
Here are two final pieces which never got uploaded from the AoAR project.

Here is a long awaited post of work from this year, unfortunately I lost track of the blog during exams for other irrelevant subjects like Maths. This was my space in the exhibition at school and features all of my A2 work from the last year.

A new project has begun which is sadly my last school drawing project ever, after only posting one entire project on my blog - AOAR. Maybe relating this new project to time will give me a sense of perspective as I head to university at the end of the summer. I hope to produce a very meaningful and interesting collection of work during the next project which will be concluded with a 15 hour art exam, fun.
Posted before my school had chance! I have uploaded a few images of my work in the assembly rooms along with a few others I liked and thought should be featured. Work from nearly every student in sixth form was submitted into the exhibition where it will stay over the next month.
The 3 pieces on the right are my work, the far right being AOAR final piece 1 and the higher one AOAR final piece 2 accompanied by my EPQ final piece. They were joined by two of Alex Harris's pieces of work which were both of an exceptional standard and also the drawing at bottom left was drawn by Claire Simpson who is in the year below.
A small charcoal piece of planning of a NYC backstreet, this was used to produce the background for my second final piece.
A black and white planning drawn in fineliner, this is again another NYC city image from David Beckerman. The corner of this was used as an extra building to make the street wider for my second final piece. The big 5 on the top left window is visible if you look closely.
Although I have already drawn this image I have illustrated it using fine liner and digitally filled in the black areas to create a solid black and white version which is also very interesting. unfortunately this was not featured in my final piece however it did inspire my photography of the car.
