Urban Sketching in Carlisle

Our latest brief involved going to locations around Carlisle and recording our surroundings. I drew at a couple of locations, Cecil Street and Botchergate. I tried to experiment with weight of line after looking at some of Lucinda Rogers illustrations.

A guide to being an Orangivore

An orangivore is an animal that has a diet of orange coloured foods.
I decided to make a poster to educate the masses.

Now you can be an orangivore too!
Foxes are often rummaging through bins looking for discarded wotsits. A healthy fox has a vibrant orange coat from their orangivore diet.

Why are orangutans orange? Well they eat a lot of Durian fruit, which may be green and spiky on the outside but inside is a yellow-orange flesh. (It also smells bad)

David Dickinson is a well known Orangivore.

Cheesy Fix

Current brief is to draw 50 things of a given colour (I got orange) and produce our own final outcome. Here's a drawing that I may be using for my final outcome.
