Experiments for the book design

As I have to design the book I had to produce some visual enchantments for it. I decided that ink splatters will be the most suited for the black and white design I’m going for. I want to link a little of contemporary with Gothic/vintage theme. Some of these will be used as back grounds of the pages and a front cover, and some will be cropped and pasted as if they are merging from the corners of the illustrations . Hopefully the program that I use (inDesign) will allow me to do this effectively after a couple of tutorials. I suck at Photoshop and this is worryingly similar to it… I am concerned if it will look interesting rather than like a huge mess .

I have also practised some ornaments for decorating the pages with the text. I want to put them at the bottom of paragraphs or stories and some at the corners or along the pages. Scan_20170506.jpg

I am an artist that currently studies in Aberystwyth, broadening my knowledge towards Painting and Illustration. I was born in Poland and therefore I like my works to be linked to my heritage, memories and experience where I explore my own imagination in different ways. I still have no idea of what exactly it is that I would like my art to be directed at, but I know that I enjoy producing works that have a true meaning and a link to nature, beauty but also imperfections. This comes from my self experience of always being judged on who I am, where I’m from and what I look like, where all people that I have come across with, no matter what they thought of me they did always appreciate my art. Thus my self worth has been increasing and my confidence of exploring varieties of styles other than just sketching from my imagination was extended. At this moment studying in Aberystwyth have opened me to start planning out my works and listen to my intuition that, so far, has never disappointed me. I want to develop my own style to the point of being able to create anything I could ever imagine.
