Digital Textiles :) Test Piece

the first test strip which will be printed onto fabric :D the background colour is going to be an issue i have to resolve.
My other piece's are yellow dyed fabric, so i need to play around with different tones of yellow so that the piece flows with the rest of the figures.....

I am slowly falling in love with idea of becoming a graphic designer.....

For the digital stage i have been designing some quick illustrations for a mock up,
they are letting me print in PCAD, however it will be at a cost...

some quick doodles on illustrator, needs a lot of work though!


The building of the structure which i will be hanging my piece's on,
the woodwork guys have been a lot of help! :)

MDF structure....Its my height and is being made so it can be transported and assembled at Royal William Yard!
This is getting exciting!!!!


Embroidery into dyed fabric :)

Stiffening process...


This Process has been exciting,
Even the cleaning process leaves me covered in paint.

I've been learning how the machine will respond to the metal...
Its taking time but its appearing how i had hoped!
Some images....

im going to add a few update posts in the next few days,
a lot has been happening!
thanks for reading,

For the studio work, i am going to get the sewing machine out today :D
Also need to apply for an MA, that is the scariest thought ever!! Ow and a competition which will be cool!

Hopefully have a lot more to say next time i post...with lots of photos :)

My assessment went ok, still not sure of exactly how well a rough grade, but as they say its art and grades dont count.....hmmmm shame i dont see it like that, i probably should!
