The Cyclist

Here's an illustration I've made for a poem-illustration book about women in the history of Cambridge, with a beautiful poem by Roseanna Waterfall. 
Here's an extract from the book for a little back story:

"In 1897, a proposal was put before Cambridge University’s Senate to grant full degrees to female graduates.
Male students responded with outrage. On the day of the debate, these students filled the area between Cambridge’s Market Square and the Senate House and an effigy of a woman on a bicycle was suspended out of the window of a building opposite the Senate House. Banners reading “No Gowns for Girtonites” and “Varsity for Men” flew alongside it. The lady cyclist in her rational costume was a readily recognised symbol of the new woman whose entrance into higher education the male students resented. At the time of the protest, women were permitted to study at Cambridge, but were not granted full degrees. Newnham and Girton Colleges for women opened in the 1870’s, and in 1881 women gained the right to write the Tripos examination. The 1897 ruling would have admitted women as full members of the university. The resolution did not, however, pass. Upon hearing this result, the triumphant mob tore down the effigy. They then savagely attacked the mannequin, decapitating and tearing it to pieces in a frenzy. What remained of the poor lady cyclist was stuffed through Newnham College gates.
Women studying at Cambridge University were not to receive the titles of full degrees until 1921, and even then it was without associated privileges."

Things are getting shape

Working on various projects right now, and things are getting shape. Here's one illustration:

And, well, a self-portrait... (It's getting cold around here!)

Long time no see!

I have been busy lately, finishing my 3D course and I will post my finishing project soon (still working on it!) and some more 3D work.
Here's a little something in the meantime:

I'm illustrating for a new children's book at the moment (this one is not related) but afterwards I'm planning to do something more in detail with these guys!

Oh, and additionally (and most importantly), a new animation's on its way! The pre-production has started, and some sneak peeks might be posted soon.

Work in progress

Gogol the Golden Golem 3D version. I will make neater markings for him soon. I also plan to use him for learning how to rig. Exciting stuff :)

And my final project for my Maya core course. Textured versions will be coming up soon, and at some point I will do the body armour too.

Mugs and bears

My golden bear made it to Say it says blog along with other bears:

And here's my latest illustration:
