Life Drawing Autumn 2014

Sadly Keith (in the first picture) passed away in November 2014. He was very professional – he kept remarkably still and was able to find his position again after a break without prompting. He was modelling on my art foundation course at Banbury 20 years ago.

Time lapse slit scan clouds

Time lapse slit scan clouds

Time lapse slit scan clouds – taken over about 45 minutes, the lower clouds pass faster and appear like normal clouds, whereas the higher cumulus clouds are puffing out like balls of steam and forming hair-like trails. The streaks of light in the lower right are the glare from the sun.

Folding Stool



Foam board and split pin prototype for folding stool to be made from broken up palettes, which I started at the Tandem Festival with the Bicester Green workshop. Here’s the design. Next – make the thing!

OVADA warehouse textured sketchup model

I measured up the OVADA warehouse for this model and textured it with photographs of the surfaces in Sketchup. Thanks to Niko from Bambino dell ‘Oro for the awesome music played in the warehouse last year – see this; and to Adrian Pawley for creating the virtual tour.

Romanesque cauliflower CT scan

Romanesque cauliflower CT scan. I found the dataset on a CD and it was quite scratched so I performed some data recovery with toothpaste and vaseline. Incidently this is exactly the same cauliflower that I drew here.

Reykjavik to Selfoss Panorama

This landscape was recorded from 2 mins 12 seconds of footage on the journey from Reykjavik to Selfoss.
The panorama is a mirror image because the time is going from left at the beginning and right at the end. The jagged line at the top and bottom is from camera movement caused by the hákarl bumps in the road.

Here’s the journey on Google Maps – I found the exact location of the first and second junctions. The snow and haze make a big difference.

Moonlight Time Lapse

This time lapse was made using Magic Lantern with my Canon – set up overnight on Aston’s Eyot. I can be swimming across the river with my head torch as well as pointing my laser pointer across the river to great effect.
