Type.Face / Illustration / Colour print

Portrait & mixed Type. A project that is a personal challenge and one that will be ongoing as a small series.

I am interested in pulling away from the digital aesthetic with these prints and using analog as the main tool and last source to bring the image to life.

Type.Face / Illustration / Colour print

Portrait & mixed Type is the outline for this project, in a layout that worked well as a composition of colour / content.

A project that is a personal challenge and one that will be ongoing as a small series.

Without giving away to much detail of the specific background to the series, it is to have a bolder message as the overall theme.

The above image was a case study that started in digital and progressed to be more analog in practice with the result being a very good healthy balance of the two combined.

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.

17bills-r1

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.

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me. I’ve had a pretty wide range of projects. Check out some shots from them (some are in progress):

This is the beginning of a new body of work that depicts a slight sense of motion and disorientation. More to come from that in the future.
