...after working on the english project for a while I simplified it. I decided to attempt model making using Fimo, just as a experiment it ended up being what I think was my best work all year. After feedback from others I decided to create a range of model people based around characters that you often see at the British seaside. I really enjoyed making these people, they were labour intensive but worth it. I was able to pull knowledge of my home town in weymouth in order to create my funny little people. i was inspired by the work of Martin Parr who often photographs in weymouth as well as Slinkachu who creates models and puts the in real life set ups.
