Welcome to rachelsays... The blog of Rachel Lewis, containing my thoughts and musings on illustration, design, fashion, music, cakey-bakey goodness, culture and things that I generally find cool. There's also a good chance my own illustration work will pop up on here.

All work on this blog is copyright to me unless I state that it isn't. Obviously. Don't do stealing, kids.

So come on in, have a look around, and leave a comment if you like what you see.

Gingerbread People - School of Art & Design Magazine: Finished Project

It's a shame I didn't have longer on this so that I could have got more spreads done. In the end I went for quality over quantity; I'm pleased with what's there but it would have been nice to get at least 1 more done. Maybe over Christmas I will though; I want to get it printed and distributed around the art building, although I have no idea how much this will cost. Getting 1 copy (albeit on nice paper) printed from our university print services cost just under £10/ Can you actually believe that. So unless I can find a way to print it cheaply (might even have to be B+W... maybe I can covertly use the free B+W printers and print it myself, DIY punk zine style...ah) then there's no way it can be distributed physically, it'll have to be emailed out as a PDF to everyone.

I really don't understand why blogger sometimes makes the colours go completely... wrong. Sigh. Anyway, here it is:

This spread is supposed to have a yellow theme; yellow ink, yellow text. I have no idea why it's uploaded like this.

And again, why does this look brown when the first spread was the right colour? Black black black.

This is just weird. Psychedelic colours. Sigh. How frustrating. I'll try and sort this out later.

And here; why has the text randomly disappeared!! It's a jpeg for god's sake. No layers involved here. Silly.
But yet you can see the text here?

Aside from the minor technical bafflement, there it is. I'm so much happier about it than I thought I'd be. It needed handing in this morning but it's still not back from the printers; once I've added it into my folder then I am completely done. I love that. Now I can read lots.

Nicely done Rachel, you should be very proud of what you have achieved with this project. It looks great, and the layouts/spreads are really slick. Great stuff!
