Summer Brief work

So, if you've read a couple of my last posts, I have mentioned about the summer brief we got set, to research and come up with a bunch of characters, and place them in a narrative. Anyway, these are the characters I came up with:

The baby (8-10 months old): Not yet walking, but crawling; always has to have her hair in a high ponytail; very mischievous (likes crawling off by herself)

The eldest daughter: 5 years old; loves motorcycles; scared of dog's (neighbour has a dog, and she can't go outside when the dog is out); a real daddy's girl; gets annoyed when people assume she's a tomboy, because of her love of motorbikes.

The husband/father: 38 years old; works as a diving instructor; born in Italy; lives in St. Ives; stuck in the 70s; got a close bond with eldest daughter.

The wife/mother: 42 years old; works as captain from boat husband works on; doesn't like how her husband is stuck in the 70s, and tries to change some of the house decor etc.

Uni + Pinocchio = start of second year!

So, yesterday, I started back at uni, entering the second year. It went alight, for a first day back. We were given a brief to silhouette Pinocchio. We have to choose a section of the story, and then illustrate it only using silhouettes. But the worse thing is, it has to be done digitally! Now, I have been thinking over the summer of what media I'm going to use in my work and photoshop and illustrator have made list as a quite possibly yes, because I like the way that you can get a flat colour on your work. Saying this though, it doesn't mean that I am completely happy working digitally yet, it's going to take some practice, but this brief will be a big help, I think.
