I found it really useful to create the mood boards as it very instantly gives me a visual to refer back to for inspiration on colours and pattern for each very different era. I found the sketchbook work very useful to get my ideas flowing as I was struggling with where to begin, and it helped me get a better feel for the periods. I really enjoyed looking at symbolism but I think I need to talk to more people about the modern day representations. I like the bigger contrasting pieces but I feel I need to think more about colourways as it doesn't feel quite right yet. I think I really want to do more of this illustrative work this week to really push my ideas.
