MA sequential design/illustration
A collection of images forming part of my research towards my MA. I have written a series of short stories (for adults or older children) using everyday objects as the starting point for each one. I have tried to precede each image description with the title of the story I think it relates to. I've also tried to include key words that I feel summarize the various themes of each story.
It's a wine label - I just like the design (I'm looking for interesting typefaces/design)
Help children learn 'under' and 'over' by singing and reading "Going on a Bear Hunt" - then turn into Messy Play Style by including a sensory play session. The book is full of descriptive language! Good for my VI kids. sensory activities, bear hunt, bears, messy play, hunts, book, play ideas, sensory play, kid
Great Literacy Idea-telling a story using sensory props!
Green Elastic: String, thread, collecting, obsessiveness.
I've included this because I like the object itself, the mobile, and in tutorials I've discussed the idea of making the object before writing the story, rather than the other way around. A mobile could also relate to childhood (Floods story), or with this particular image, the magpie quality of an object (for Green Elastic or Scissors story) - it's a very attractive object, I think because of its gold colour and its movement.

Like the mobile this could relate to childhood (Floods story). I like how simple this is - it is like a child's drawing.
Floods: Houses, home, damage, shambolic.
Floods: Childhood, daydreaming, imagination.
A hope chest legacy is vast and far reaching. Some of the items in a hope chest may include practical things such as treasured table cloths, china, pillowcases, blankets, quilts, aprons, cookbooks, dish towels. It also may include~ worthy books, letters of wisdom, Bibles and even beloved hand written journals. hope chest items
A young photographer of a bit over 20 years old cleans up in the old family villa - and finds a trousseau of 14 high fashion robes of his grandmother. This is particularly wonderful - and even more as this young man is the sond of Lucchino Visconti and grandson of Carla Erba. unearth beauti, robes, fashion, dreams, blue, dresses, beauti robe, antiqu dress, antiques
Trousseau: I haven't written a story called Trousseau, but I'm playing with the idea of including one, or using the idea of the Trousseau as an umbrella for the project.
