Been a bit of a hectic Easter break!
I’ve decided to make a few changes to my publication, Im saying good bye to my creepers.
After a crit with my tutor we decided that they look too alien like as opposed to a creepy looking human.
So i’ve been doing a tone of research into what sort of people I would find on the streets of London to include in my publication, this research led me to the articles in ‘Street Life in London, an old magazine/newspaper type publication featuring articles by Adolph Smith and the Photographer John Thompson.
I found an online version for those interested,

These articles included interviews with men and women working on the streets of London, it really is fascinating I recommend a look through.
Here I found a collection of the most intriguing photographs of professions I didnt even know where around, from board men to half penny ice cream sellers! 
I hope to incorporate some of these characters in my publication to get an idea of who and what was on the streets.

I’m nearly there!, this is a new composition with a few different paper cut houses to add variation.

Not sure if the arrangement is too dense? Im getting this printed for my mock ups so I will get a better idea of what works.

This is the double page spread version with the addition of chimney smoke which is scanned in cotton wool.

The image above is a good concept for the London skyline I wanted to capture for the environment introduction.

These are just quick mock ups for possible single and double page layouts.
Eventually the text will be a photograph of handwritten chalk text which links to ‘Jack the Rippers’ chalk messages he left on the walls by some of his murders, this will be a constant feature of my publication.

Starting research for my publication project ‘true stories’ 
Jack the Ripper has always been an interest of mine but something I have never looked into so seemed perfect to be the topic of this next project!
I’m really excited for the dark and rich imagery i’ll be creating, still using my paper cut and photography style, which will be a huge contrast to my cute otters in my last project.

Booked my ticket to london dungeons and loaded up 4od with ripper street, all I need now is a cup of coffee and a chocolate digestive and im away…
