By far one of the most entertaining Lecturers we’ve had come speak to us. Pulp is a graphic designer/Band Member/ Brand Manager. It’s safe to say he has a lot on his plate. Although his Lecture was a little confusing it was really interesting. Being in a band he has toured in many different countries. … More Michael Bennett AKA Henry Pulp
Being Terrible with technology, I cringe at the thought of trying to create a business card. It would be so easy to just use the templates from some of these printing companies however I think as a student doing a creative degree, I think it would be almost frowned upon if I were to take … More Business Cards – What? Where? How?
Rosalind Davis is a fine artist that works at Collyer Bristow. What I understood from her lecture was to just get out there, go to all the exhibitions, galleries and art fairs even if you aren’t displaying work, you can meet some important people there. You never know where you will meet people who will … More Rosalind Davis – Guest lecturer
With the end of the year approaching, there’s naturally going to be more completing of modules, which is frightening. Yesterday, we finished our Critical Theory Module. This is a module I haven’t mentioned on here but as it was a module based on art history, I didn’t think it was interesting enough for it to be … More Another Module Complete

The first one being the facts that on the top floor I completed the image that was supposed to … More Negotiated Practice – Complete!

This is the first competition I have entered in a long while, and I understand that there is a small chance of winning as it is an open, free competition. However … More Ohh Deer – Go Card or Go Home
The Portfolio Interview is basically a way of practicing for a real interview if we were to have one for an artist role. Although it was going to be graded. This was only using the work we have created in the studio this year at its most current state. Which is frustrating as I wouldn’t … More Portfolio Interview
For our end of year exhibition we are all expected to sign up for groups that work towards it (advertisement, catalogue design, fundraising etc.) I decided I was probably most useful doing fundraising. To raise money for our exhibition, this year we have held a few bake sales, which have all been pretty successful. The … More Bake Sales Galore!

I hit a wall with it, was not happy with it and wanted to change direction. Upon having a chat with our lecturer, he advised me to stick with it, as … More Studio Update – Personal/Emotion
