Hi hi hi hi! That Jane Eyre book is beautiful, it's just wow wow wow, I don't even have the words to appropriately form my appreciation! Is it for sale at all? Can I get one? ♡♡♡
Hello! Thank you so much for your kind words! I only had four copies made, so unfortunately it is not for sale. However, you can see all of the pages online here if you like: http://issuu.com/sheronylock/docs/the-unreadable-jane-eyre xxx
It’s been far too long since I last posted something on my blog. This doesn’t mean I’ve been idle though!
Here’s something I did a while ago: the album artwork for Robin Mitchell’s second instalment of his feather weight soul tape series. This project was a lot of fun, and it was great to build upon similar design styles as the original feather weight soul tape.
Here’s a link to the album on Robin’s bandcamp page if you want to check it out: http://robinmitchell.bandcamp.com/album/feather-weight-soul-tape-vol-ii-mellowtape

Apparently, my blog turned 3 today!
Forgot to post these before, but here’s some of the home-made gifts I made my family for Christmas. I made the mango chutney for Dad and crocheted the hot water bottle for Mello.

I took an inspirational quote from a previous star quarterback from Tim’s NFL team, the San Francisco 49ers and made this type piece for his birthday a few weeks ago. It was a nice type challenge!

My copy of the ‘Winners and Shortlisted’ book from the British Book Design & Production Awards 2013 has arrived, with both of my books featured! It’s a shame that the Jane Eyre book got dirty in the post, and so there isn’t a clean photo of it in the book, but still excited to see my work amongst some of the best designed books in Britain!
A drawing I did of my beautiful friends Baz & Katie, for Baz to give to Katie for her birthday last month.
Haven’t put anything up on the blog for some time, so I’ve got a lot to add over the next few days. Here’s a type doodle to start.
I had to write a short statement about getting my 'Highly Commended' award in the Best Student Book category of the British Book Design & Production Awards 2013. Here’s a link to the UWE press release.
