About me

Hello, I’m Erin Jones!

When first coming to UCLan I knew I had a love for illustration but over these three years I’ve discovered that I have so many other areas of interest, such as fashion illustration, animation and creative direction.

I want to make art that can create an uplifting energy whilst also being stylish and chic.

My most important accomplishment was being a guest speaker at UCLan’s own conference week this year with Dominik Dzik and Ryan Boyes. We are the first undergraduate students to do a talk and I feel so grateful to be given that opportunity to help and inspire others.

I plan to do a masters here next year (fashion and lifestyle branding) and to keep on building up my portfolio, but in the future I want to be a full time illustrator, either at an agency or freelance.

For this project I got to write my own brief, I wanted to combine my two biggest inspirations being fashion and music together. I ended up deciding on making an artbook and merchandise line to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the album Bankrupt! by Phoenix, the artbook has a page for each song and would follow three characters as they travel around Europe in designer clothes. To expand on the jet-setting theme I wanted the merchandise to have a retro airline company theme. If you'd like to view the whole project, I have a section on my website.
