I am a multimedia illustrator who especially enjoys making artwork with printmaking, biro, and watercolour. Printmaking has always been something I enjoy using and I have developed these skills over the last three years on the Illustration and Design Course at Sunderland University. I started using biro during my second year. I love the challenge that comes with this drawing method; making my mistakes into happy accidents adds depth and texture to the drawing. I was keen to use this process to illustrate my major final project, When We Visit. This story is about a universe filled with magic. In order to showcase this, I needed to consider how I injected colour. I ended up combining my original drawing with digital media to do this. My technical skills have without a doubt improved over the course of this project.
