These sketchbook pages contain a clear link between real world sources of inspiration (such as the jellyfish) and conceptual designs. The pages include a superb range of techniques (i.e. the white on black work, completed by blowing white ink through a straw) and drawings upon found surfaces (such as the gridded maths paper). Amber demonstrates an awesome variation of line weight in the bottom work – using a simple medium to great effect.
Original pinner sez: These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
