Cuckoo Clocks

Week two in Lilla's bootcamp and the assignment was to design a mobile phone cover using our cuckoo clock artwork.  I wasn't that excited when I read we had to design for a phone case....bit small....but once I'd seen Lilla's gorgeous quirky inspiration, colour palette ideas, art tips, and beautiful examples of how to present our designs I couldn't wait.

I didn't use many of my original drawings from week one in the end...I tried...but failed...and ended up going back to my old favourites paint and collage. 

I also tried a second option which I'm going to rework a little when I get the chance. It's been half term and raining here this past week so not much chance of doing anything except breaking up fights.

There are over 400 designs from my fellow happy bootcampers in a gallery over at Lilla's blog, you can see them here.

Bootcamp Begins

So, week one of Assignment Bootcamp is over, and as I expected, I am loving it! 

Make Art That Sells (Part A) which I did in October was absolutely amazing, but it was pretty intense, (so much work and inspiration...so little time) but with bootcamp it's a much more relaxed pace. Instead of two days to do the mini drawing assignments which we got in MATS, we get one whole week in bootcamp.....bliss.  

The theme Lilla has given us for our first week is cuckoo clocks. Such a great subject as there are so many wonderful details....the folk art patterns, the cuckoo birds, the little house shapes. They are so whimsical and quirky and really lovely to draw. 


Tomorrow we will be given the main assignment....can't wait to get started!
