omg! you're from dubai

Patrick Smith Graphic Communication Year 3

A city of sand, but wonder to most

Don’t forget the culture that comes with the host

A city of storms, but sunshine to glow It’s a shame it’s too hot for tourists to go

Eighteen years of growth in the sunny, sandy pit

But only locals understand that with heat comes the wit

Test your mind by coming to Dubai

It seems fun in pictures, so give it a try

Bring the sunscreen, you don’t want to burn It’s never a fun lesson to learn

Sure, Dubai is a great place to be, As long as you have a place with A.C

HILLS OF NORWICH

I was incorporating almost a playful mood towards an abstract style. The scene was made from the hills I’ve seen while in Norwich. I don’t know much about hills, but when you get to the top, there’s always a view.

You don’t really see a lot of bright colours when it comes to the terrain in Norwich, but the lights that layer over the land make for a pleasant sight. I create art for the city and the city creates art for me.

This could be associated with night time, but because it’s England, it could also be associated with daytime, due to the sun, or lack of it.

DUNES OF DUBAI

I was incorporating almost a playful mood towards an abstract style. The scene was made from the dunes of the middle eastern deserts. Massive creatures of sand that engulf each other, almost competing for attention.

I would walk by a lot of these dunes on my day to day journeys. The sun would always be in your eyes, but when the sun would set, the sky would be so calm, almost with a tint of yellow, as the sun would fade away and allow the moon to fall into place.

I miss the sun, and I sometimes miss the heat. It will live through me until the next time I go back.
