These sketchbook pages have a formal, organised, uncluttered presentation style, with a minimal use of colour. Items are positioned carefully, allowing each piece of the design process to be appreciated fully. The project contains a thorough investigation of detail and pattern, with first-hand observation of moths and butterflies informing subsequent designs.
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.
