The Labyrinth Man

For the past three weeks we have been working on a project which involves creating a mural for the wall space in our crit room...
We were given the short story "The Library Of Babel by Jorge Luis Borges "- it's interesting, go look it up :)

There's a line in the story 'A mere labyrinth of letters' so I started drawing mazes and labyrinths and many days later, came up with the above image.

The labyrinth consists of a single line, it can be traced all the way around the image- the shape ended up looking a bit like a man (maybe just in my head) so i thought it would be fun to have him falling through space. The background was done in printmaking- it's just a basic Silk-screen- love the colours...

Let me know what you guys think- any suggestions?
I might put up some sketch book work.. let's see how it goes.

The explanation you didn't ask for

Why I haven't really put up any photos of my work yet-

That's because I don't like showing it.Heavy sigh. We'll get to that- just be happy I've put up some nice photographs of random stuff, they should keep you entertained until the real work gets here.

Anyway, good night.

(coffee is my biggest weakness)

If cameras spoke, they would say random words like these...

One Day I Will Own A Circus

~ George the Amazing Elephant ~

This is screen print i did last semester. so technically yes it's a second year piece of work. but i feel it important to give George the exposure he needs to grow as an elephant. screen printing was amazing fun- loved the whole process, may take a productive trip up there one of these days.
okay, yes i know - it's terrible. why did i even start this blog? i haven't even updated it since april. april. yes, april. i actually forgot that it existed. well, it's about to change now! third year in illustration began last week and i feel it my duty to act my age.. (dont know how long this will last, but i might as well give 'growing up' a shot)

yes, well.

sea biscuits are a soggy business...
