Here is my new interview in the photoshop creative magazine (issue 93). A new tutorial is coming soon.
A few months ago I was approached by TBWA Paris in order to participate in a collection of 20+ illustrations for their client Infiniti/ Team Red Bull. There was a total of 6 artists including myself and each artist got a set number of illustrations to complete according to their own personal style. I was chosen to do the artwork for Bahrain Grand Prix, Monaco Grand Prix, Germany Grand Prix and Singapore Grand Prix. Each illustration focuses on particular assets of the cars . Bahrain focuses on the pistons, Monaco focuses on the paddle gear shift sustem , Germany focuses on the rear wheel angle adjustment system and Singapore focuses on the pure might and strength of their electronic supercar. The colour schemes are relative to the countries flags and the main concept behind all illustrations is data visualisation and integration through digital art. For Infiniti, performance is about more than statistics, it’s about how their cars make the driver feel. So for this campaign, we took performance data from a range of Infiniti cars and visualised it in a way that showed more colour, more depth and more feeling. For each poster a car was selected based on how well its standard features matched the demands of each track.

Rage . Fury . Intense / Mixed Media
Recent new piece that looks great on print, it is has a neat aesthetic to it from every angle.
I started using hand written words at the beginning of the year, so, this is a strong visual reference to most of my work now.
There is a simple system of arrangement and process to get the effect used here, which in terms of an identity development, is a good look.
Whilst colour is always a good challenge, and of course there is a need for it, some newer pieces are simple black & white.
My view is that there is still so much depth to discover between these two tones, yet colour is just as pleasing for colour specific visuals that warrant.
This works well. Oh, colour items on the way too.

InkFace / New Development / Mixed Media :
Here is the latest edition of artwork.
In a nutshell my own development using an array of mixed media, every tool I have is being used fully and cranked hard!
This has been a long time coming, so for me, it is a milestone reached. After a few discussions around the table, plenty of caffeine, days melding into nights and nose to grind. I have been looking through a vast selection of old work that to me, is just that, old. The only way to push past this kind of ‘block’ was to scrap some, keep some, build anew. Still the same one man show, but this time, more determined with a whole trunk of focus.
I am very aware that this point was reached well over a year ago, during this swift development, one of the main factors was by reading my personal journal posts and how slow and frustrating the process has been.
To quote the previous post, production time is now much swifter, paying much close attention to mediums used + file types to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.
Fully confident that this will develop much further as my own language as an Artist and Designer.

‘Bohemian Vintage’ / Art Direction & Photography – session 1
This is a selection of a recent Art Direction & Photography with my good friend & professional model Alice la Vie.
Having a massive interest in photography, and only recently started to pursue a more varied selection and style to my work worthy of serious dedicated art direction. Point & shoot right?
There has been so much amazing feedback to my photography, this together with wanting to steer clear of Architecture as the main field of study, so decided to arrange a couple of photoshoots. The female form is the next logical step from architecture, with a good study of light and shadow, but colour rather than black & white is a huge challenge for me.
Alice is great to work with, we get on very well, she is also an alternative model, more to the point she is highly adaptable at pushing her own creativity, and certainly not a flake like many other ladies that I have come across. She is well aware of her limitations and knows how to push herself to achieve results. On the day we both worked super hard gathering as much variation to our styles as possible, throwing around a good amount of ideas and inspired themes. This selection of clothing ( models own ) gave me a good opportunity to mix up the colour & blend a vintage lighting style into the composition. Here you can also see a good selection of prints chosen from this particular photo session as further aesthetic communication. Rather than just taking random shots, there was some format involved in producing high quality images for a purpose.
On the day we completed 3 strong visual sessions / themes + a hundred or so test shots & deletions.
My conclusion is that the photography part was easy, with a little direction. Now, if you are working as a team, it is essential to communicate, this allows entire creative freedom with super positive results.
