Analog + Digital Graffiti / Type / Texture

The texture that I was keen to execute as a digital visual, was a simulated rough surface that has been sprayed with aerosol. With this in mind, I always seek to put together designs that have multiple uses across the board.

Starting off with a complex looking but basic layout as a pen background, the type and layer fade is all the project needed.

First phase was a template with the letters cut out of card. Initially wanting to do a painted type print, the paint was an incorrect mix and it looked wack.

Second was a mock up on cartridge paper to check the composition. The cut letters were then scanned, including the texture, and the handwriting. The final draft was put together in layers, with colour content added for the aerosol look and minor special effects. It would have been cool to use canned paint for the entire piece, nevertheless an enjoyable project and one to push forward.

‘Lacerate Media’ / Texture / Art

As a reflection of last months site journal post, the 3 images here are the test pieces.

They are mixed method pieces, with the final image being the preferred quality of finish.

As design is a test of ability, the main grind is in finding the easiest and most effective way to do something that is usually a complicated process. My concern for when the storefront is live is that there are only new works available and not something that has been generally ripped off or repeated by other artists previously. The third Razors edge is the first store instalment, using my own stock image and elements. Printing is currently external, although seeking to upscale asap and progress with prints for solo shows. Editorial is of great interest, so pushing to learn more in this area also.

‘Don’t need NO Devil dust’ / Ian Brown / Mixed method / Experimental Portfolio

In my opinion one of the greatest Great British singer-songwriters of all time.

Ok, so many may disagree. Whatever. This guy has proved himself to be one of the most influential artists in recent years. From a true working class family, to the lead vocalist of  The Stone Roses, he has a celebrated history of perfect lyrics and bold collaborations ( personal artistic favs : UNKLE  / ADIDAS / BAPE ) which has seen him rise to the top of the ranks. This does not come easy. A solid solo career setting himself aside from the usual suspects in terms of visual art & video appeal, content instruments, tight, challenging lyrics and awesome depth of character has earned him the aforementioned status.

Having seen him perform, I would say he offers a wise expression as opposed to glitter ball stage gimmicks. This gives him an awesome presence. And of course he is renowned for saying that he needs ‘no devil dust’ for his confidence. Mr Brown, a true performer, I salute you.

The Invasionism pack is neat. And possibly collectable. So… let’s make them count.

The one thing about the Southwest, come hell or high water is the tourism. They come for the historical value and the art. And what more do visitors need more than signs? …more signs… I got a real kick watching some visitors in the city see the already existing signage… then promptly get out a smart phone and internet search the words on the stickers.

Traffic boost!

here are proud KDU members down this way, myself included. The Art Sector itself is always a good source of design gossip / story telling. The who’s who and who’s doing what or who. So awareness was on the agenda. The education system is what it is. When I studied here in the southwest (Devon & Cornwall), most courses were switched mid-way into something rather more defined by digital medium as opposed to personal creative development. Many students found that the level of teaching was slow and unstructured and poor. This in turn offered a poor attendance by many, who realised that the course detail was far from what they signed up for. I know a few that work in dept stores and no longer sketch, let alone feel that a future in art or design is something to consider. Anyhow, it is refreshing to see that nowadays the various mediums and media are embraced and the frayed edges have now been stitched and ironed out. A thriving community of art and design focused individuals have a grand voice and the best selections of art on display at all times of the year. Hence it now being the Art Sector.

TV Party! – Camila Huerta by Gustavo Brigante
This work was a collaboration with chilean model Camila Huerta for her portfolio. Worked out this piece with total freedom of subject as long as the piece was centered on the main portrait so i had lots of fun working on this. At the time of making this i was also learning Cinema 4d (still am) so i experimented a little with it for this composition and all the rest was worked around with Photoshop.

'Cut the Breeze' t-shirt

Last Friday we celebrated the launch of our 2nd House Guest Artist in the Denham Store in Amsterdam.

After having a local hero, Alljan Moehamad, for the first project, the 2nd in our series of guest artists welcomes STB Tees into the Denham House: a stand alone project by jakenoakes, who traditionally specialises in printed media (mainly books and magazines) often creating limited edition, bespoke publications.

Most recently jakenoakes designed Bill Gold: PosterWorks, the first limited-edition publication for luxury publishing house Reel Art Press (available through reelartpress.com) and co-created a live interactive stage show for Groove Armada.

The DENHAM geometric scissor design has a timeless yet contemporary appeal and was inspired by the works of Sol LeWitt.
