KDUnit

Hello Keystone Design Union!

First and foremost I’d like to extend a huge thank you to the man David Gensler for putting me down with the KDU. I’ve been a huge fan ever since the days of The Royal, and dude is a straight up strategic genius. I’m looking forward to continuing to blaze the trail that he and the thousands of talented individuals that make up The KDU have set before the world, and to continue to reshape the landscape of creativity and inspiration that unites us.

And a special thank you to the one and only Cat King for capturing the pic!

Peace and Respect!

We just launched a new experience for A Company of Wolves — WeCreateWolves.com

A Co. of WLVS, is an ideal experience of art & design. The artists involved act as a symbol to represent the canis lupus migrations & travels throughout each territory across the globe. A visual field of tracks / wolf-line collectively & individually. We’ve created a dialogue with the historical + mythical battle of the wolf. The fear & pride; the monster in your view-finder, did our imagination create it, questions of if it was/is/continues an illusory matrix & the epic odyssey of our dear protagonist-villain polarity.

This new site was launched to share more of what we have to offer.  You should continue to view ofWLVS.co for news updates & corporate/commercial information. Pulling energy with each phase of the moon, a record of pack activities are on the following social sites — ofWLVS.tumblr.com, @ofWLVS, facebook.com/ACompanyOfWolves, be.net/ACompanyOfWolves & pinterest.com/ofWLVS

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.

‘Crack Whips Ride Hard’ / Mixed Media

This is an old type piece, rather than scrap it, I thought the you may like it.

Completed in three colours, black on white has more impact. Reviewing various + & – of using mixed media.

This is only a reference piece that has been printed, although it looks pretty good on screen.

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.

I am excited for the release of my third brand D.I.B.S. stands for Do It Big Son, which is the motto everyone behind the brand lives by. It was created to support the people pursing and struggling for their dreams. The music producers and rappers living in basements, recording in booths built from makeshift materials. The filmmakers shooting on used equipment, spending hours perfecting their craft. The student who defies the impossible and doesn’t take no for an answer. Go for it, your dream, your passion, whatever you live for. Life is not about the wealth and fame but about the journey.

Live for the stories, live for the friends, live for the ride.
