Excuse the annoying commercial that will probably pop up before this video plays, but we @laundry! had the pleasure of contributing design for this piece, and designing and animating Mick Jaggers space sequence for the last 1/3rd of the video,

Hi!
First of all I’m very proud to become a member of the KDU! Thank you very much! 

With my first post I would like to share two illustrations, called ‘Mary’ and ‘Jesus’, of my upcoming t-shirt collection. 
The line will be released in early summer ‘12 under the topic ‘Croyance’.
Stay tuned for further works. I’ll keep you updated!

Phase 1 :

Character / caricature sketch for a personal project that will include some moving images, background, graffiti + music. 2D is neat to see in a slow moving scene. A fine art portrait is not the required finish, so please note, that this is in good humour.

A4 standard cartridge paper using a Derwent 4b + Faber-Castell ink pen. Copied up to A3 then cut. Saturation in shaded areas, minimum detail.

As with the RZA pic, it is kept as black and white until all character pieces are finished.

To be continued.

‘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.

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.

My contribution to Gallery 1988’s Tribute to Bill Murray. Which is set to open November 4th in LA (7020 Melrose Ave to be specific). The piece is going to be screen printed with 3 colors on thick textured paper. The concept is about showing Bill’s characters throughout the last 30 or so years and how both he and his characters have evolved over the years.

In other news, I’ve recently left my full-time gig at Go Media (on good terms of course), to pursue freelancing. So if anyone needs my expertise for any reason, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
