Herts and Essex Community Farm are holding their annual event Farm Fest again this summer and I have been working on the leaflet / poser design.
As this is a family event I thought it'll be interesting to do two versions of the design, one in full colour, to stand out and grab attention, and one in black & white, to use as colouring material. It'll be interesting to see the different results of how people will colour them.
Final Image will be uploaded once they have gone to print.
The exhibition is now over, I got some excellent feedback from visitors and sold several pieces.
This being one of the pieces that sold, which gained a lot of interest.
It was great to observe a guy completely unaware of my presence staring for quite some time, looking at the map and then referring to the key below speaking under his breath "where is that" to himself, as he was trying to work out each location.
This piece however seemed to be the most successful securing the most sales.
Thanks to everyone who come along and showed interest in the work exhibited. It was an impressive exhibition, with some inspiring work from a wide range of local artist.
This piece is a personal project that I have designed to display in an exhibition based on Harlow Town. The aim is to highlight some of the many creative feature within the town centre which offer inspiration to its public.
Still Life by Fred Watson
I have included many of the sculptures which are dotted around the centre, and some of the architecture which give the town its character such as, the old citizens advice bureau, terminus house, and market square clock.

I have also added people into the piece to show the iteration between the town and its people. The two sitting on the bench are enjoying the relaxed environment of the water gardens, The cyclist is passing though due to the many cycle routes that link the centre to the other parts of town, and the guy on the balcony is overlooking Market Square at The Rows.

I have tried to create a true and positive representation of Harlow, and look forward to having it on display next month.
This piece will be on display from the 11th of July in Eastgate Gallery, Harlow.
Spend the day at the Barbican Centre in London with some friends, a sketch pad, and a couple of pens.
It made good practise for capturing peoples natural body language, and their interaction between one another outside in a relaxed environment.
I also captured scenes which I found to have interesting form and composition. So the way people are all sat around the pond together with the trees in the background giving a sense of place and helping to set the mood.
Im currently designing a print for an exhibition based on Harlow Town. My design will be using elements of Harlow, and mapping them out across the page to represent the town, and some of its key features.
Taking some important industrial buildings such as one of the top pharmaceutical companies, and a major glass manufacturing plant for example, and creating a very simple monotone image to use in print.
I aim to print in two sizes, one smaller one colour print, and a larger two colour print. Meaning that I will need to think carefully when drawing out the design to make sure that the one design can work in both forms. This meaning there can be no overlap,or two colours touching, as I would normally do in my print work.
Some buildings such as this water tower may have less importance to the town society or economy, but serve as a familiar feature along the landscape that people will recognise.
