With this version of the Emperor, I have incorporated what I saw when I visited the V&A Museum; the imperial robes on display were exquisite. I can't quite replicate the intricate details to cutout card, however I have managed to cut out a crane and I have simplified the iconic chinese swirl pattern.

This is a zine I've made for my Professional Practice module, it is based on the last rough I made. It's about the things I love; some of the things I've illustrated are silly, but the zine is meant to be light hearted and fun! This will have a partner zine, the next one I intend to make will have things I dislike or hate.

This is my lovely new photography lamp :) I was going to buy the giant one but it was a little excessive, not to mention expensive aswell! It is perfect for my shadow puppet show, and plus there's no doubt that it'll come in handy for photographing future projects etc.

This is a small cutout concertina zine I've made for my Professional Practice module. We were asked to make something that acts as self publicity, so I have chosen to make a zine about myself that showcases my skill of cutting into paper. It has rather silly facts about me, i.e. my chinese name, how I would love a bear cub for a pet, how I can eat a 2 litre tub of ice cream in the space of an hour, and how much I love sleep. These 'interesting facts' will probably be revised, but this is simply a dummy zine to get an idea of the outcome.
I like and am intrigued by the shadows cast from the cutouts. Apologies for the shoddy quality of the images, my phone is rubbish!
