‘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.

Prima Facie/Facient :

Pen / Scan | Abstract | speed test.

Having never fully exercised working on words, except for writing & a set of png letters for poster plates years ago, thought it may be time to give it more thought.

Executed from ‘one’ file alone. One simple quickly written image to scan + 3 programs using the same file for the entire construction of the image.

Now, the original file was intended for a collab weeks ago, as it never happened, here it is.

The time taken for the two lettering files from scan to finish, the background, including one background element was well under 4 hours.

Well, some may point out that it could be better, sure, or another choice of wording perhaps, the point is, that with combined efforts, time constraints should not be an issue.

Conclusion:

Production time is now much swifter. Also paying much more attention to file types used over the past couple of years to ensure size aspect & resolution stays exact.

This is not as comfortable as splashing paint, but holds awesome possibilities alongside older digital languages/work that could have been pitched. Keep everything.

This would look just as good, better in fact, in paint…

‘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.

After completing my second year as student in Cross-Media design without any trouble. I used my vacation to spend more time with my girl, my passion – training athletics and illustrating.

This project is a result of experimenting with new techniques to illustrate portraits and a passion for stories from legendary athletes in track and field. Myself, Bram Vanhaeren ran my first race when I was 5 years old and still compete today. It’s my favorite sport and I love to spend my evenings on the track with my friends.

After picking some of my favorite athletes, having fun illustrating and playing with colors. I have decided to share it with you. Five illustrations, five stories, five legends. My love translated in colors.
