I got in contact with an up and coming singer, Ezra Glatt, on tiktok and worked on illustrating an album/single cover for him. I did two options for him to choose from. He has now signed a record deal and I am going to get in touch directly with the label.

I had a denim jacket commission

I made a professional website : www.florencethornton.com/

Magical and spiritual artwork of the amazing Susan Seddon Boulet
Vincent Van Gogh
I tried something a little different (painting with my hands and scratching into the paint), but I didn't like the direction it was taking so I moved on from this piece.
I painted the sacred sequoia trees in my own style and was happier with this but still not satisfied.

<![CDATA[Illustrator]]>Thu, 11 Nov 2021 14:46:18 GMThttp://florencethornton.grillust.uk/illu5020/illustratorVery sorry about this task, was not my jam at all. I gave it a go but with no success ! 

Took me two hours to figure how to do this .... 

<![CDATA[Photoshop Poster]]>Mon, 25 Oct 2021 18:28:23 GMThttp://florencethornton.grillust.uk/illu5020/photoshop-posterI found this mix of vintage and faux vintage band posters on pinterest that I liked before the lecture on tuesday morning, funny how I don't like many of them anymore.
I think I've come to realise looking though many examples of posters online and even in the lecture the main thing to do is make a striking image, either with illustration or just with text. At the end of the day none of them look the same but they draw in attention. 


"Fake Eagles" sounds to me very Indie Folk/Rock. 

Lucky for me this is my favourite genre of music! 
  • Kings of Leon
  • Shawn James
  • Alt-J
  • Half moon run
  • First Aid Kit
  • Beirut

So yes, I am going to be looking at what I enjoy, getting an idea of mood, colour, style etc.

First idea for colours and theme

I made analogue textures

After making the thumbnails I watched through all Dwayne's videos and a couple on youtube, but I also did get my brother to help explain some technical aspects.

<![CDATA[Week 3 (Paint)]]>Mon, 18 Oct 2021 15:19:51 GMThttp://florencethornton.grillust.uk/illu5020/week-3I tried my best to work as quickly and as loosely as I could with the different mediums, I used different papers as support for my work, but  unfortunately wasn't able to find artists to compare my work to.
<![CDATA[Week 2 (Cats and dogs)]]>Mon, 18 Oct 2021 15:10:50 GMThttp://florencethornton.grillust.uk/illu5020/week-2I tried to plan out some ideas but I was not very inspired by any of them so I made a couple attempts.
Their names are Twigs, Floof, Shaggy and Floppy Flops respectively.
