These are some photos of a pattern project in process last year. Lots of saffron ink and collages of tiny organic shapes to create patterns. I was studying graphic design full time at TAFE. It's something I've always wanted to do. Working for myself, by myself and from home I also think it's so important that I continue to search out ways I can push myself and add to my skill sets. Professional development! I love that we were encouraged to work on paper first and not to just jump straight onto the computers (this suited me perfectly as my computer skills especially concerning photoshop, indesign and illustrator were non existent).
This year I'm being a little more sensible and only studying part time as I felt hot toffee suffered from my neglect last year along with my life balance. I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute though! I am hoping that by studying part time that I will be able to put into practice some of the things I learnt last year and things I will learn last year - after all it's not the qualification that I am seeking, it's the skills and the confidence using those skills! I am in no hurry to graduate.
So hopefully once I get into a routine with work and study I will be visiting this little blog of mine more regularly.
