My contribution to the Quentin vs. Coen show next week in NYC. If you’re in the area, you should come check out the show. It’s a show based on characters from the films of the Coen Brothers and Quentin Tarantino. I chose to do a piece on Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction. Say ‘what’ again. This is a very limited print run, and will probably sell out at the show. I may have an extra 15 or so of my own that I’ll put up for sale after the show’s over.

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!

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.

UK rock band, To Catch a Thief, approached me about working with them on their new album packaging. They simply provided me with the title and I ran with it and came up with an art direction based on vintage horror films. This is just the cover, the rest of the layout is still in production. More to come later.
