Let me start off by saying I am not much for joke or comedy graphics in general. I find them shallow and often more cheap than funny and generally try to avoid such projects. An associate got in touch recently with a proposition of creating graphics based around the rants of the one and only Charlie Sheen however, which much against my normal anti comedy stance seemed like a really interesting opportunity to participate in the rise or fall of an acting legend depending on your take on it. Regardless, his many signature sayings really lent themselves to fun iconography. See more here… Also I am putting the finishing touches on the interfaces for his iphone app that will release very soon.

Camera, Ink & Type blended to make this small offering :

Not entirely new work, more of a small cache of explorations making their way to the top of the pile.

The images used were of urban areas that had been disregarded and damaged by vandalism and continued weathering and had been stripped of colour. The images were of a large electric mains supply, a flyover, and a telephone box.

The focus was on how people choose to continue to damage surroundings yet consider these places to be an ultimate refuge or sanctuary. A cause and effect, vicious cycle scenario from an abstract or even instinctual perspective.

This entry has been amended after some constructive criticism offered about the write up, so thanks a million!

Protect Ya Neck.

Still a banger to this day. Without listing an entire discography of classics, remixes and major credits to the clan founders & members, I’m just touching on the brand. Aside from one other behemoth of a Hip Hop brand to hit the globe from the United States some years ago, the ‘W’ is still a huge statement of unrivalled stature. It represents a balanced structure, a pure blending of styles and artistic vision.

When it comes to music, I can be a fanatic, showing my age, and pointing the finger at young heads and saying ‘You aint seen nothing until you saw a live hip hop gig’.

Music plays a huge part in my life. Music, like Art is an entire movement, sometimes the two collide and fuse to offer strategy and direction on many levels. Like art and its disciples, we all need to breathe it, live it and become accustomed to its movement.

Respect to the Wu Tang Clan, here is my homage ( 1 of 4 in progress )

Ode to the Supermoon :

It continues to guide vessels. A constant reminder of ones awareness of self and of presence. Its features represent a knowing and a sense of purpose amid the void.

We question its dominance and its activity. The poetry that it weaves among men, the vision among seers, the silence among prophets, effect upon tide, telling of time.

The mathematics is simple, and yet is made complicated and unfathomable by many. Know your gravity. Unity through alignment and co-ordination. In this we Trust.

Logo / type treatment and image - a solid simplified system of elements, a good balance of light and dark, not complicated. The Keystone shows gravitational pull, remaining intact, dominant and unshadowed.

A vision to ‘Destroy the Machines’ was to mix organic and mechanical forms to create a fused compound in constant evolution and motion. Structure vs Growth. A hand inked background was scanned and added to offer a movement to the illustration framework as we near our minds toward the atomic frame and realise the infinite.

The contrast and conflict is that it lacks a certain aggression in making a statement and thorough intention.

Although a machine was used to execute the design, it is more a visual that represents energetic organic ascension as opposed to digital devolution.
