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.

It is no secret that i’m a big fan of RYZ. Their contests are a great opportunity for all participants to not only gain a little exposure, but also gather constructive criticism and fine tune the detail within designs. The template and render application is truly a great way to visualize conceptual ideas and see them in full display from various angles. Above is my 5 color entry into the recent ‘Back to the 50’s contest’ which will offer $1000 to the winning visual of a coordinated Tshirt and Hi-top Shoe design, which may also be merchandised in a retail store. Voting continues until Dec 10th.

Anyhow, here is what I came up with. Just click on either pic to expand the full image.

Recently picking up a little pace with photographic work to organize an extension to the existing portfolio. I have a keen interest in black and white photography, albeit digital. The play of light and shadow always intrigues me, and aside from architecture, there is nothing finer than sculptured, carved or crafted statues worn by the elements as a test against time.

Atmospheric with an aged aesthetic preferred, with respect for all traditional methods.

This piece is a few years old. At the time it was going to be a pitch to Sony for the V series of screens that was in production, as I was really impressed with the huge leap forward in pixel perfect images, and the tech displays at trade shows. It made digital art interesting again, with wide screen taking the helm.The idea was to show various raw energy visuals connecting elements to and from the screen. It seems a basic design now, but a good recap and creative insight to include here.

The main Dragon image was a scanned illustration with all elements added layer by layer.

The strap line created for the graphic was ‘SONY : Our vision is your future – Your vision is our future’

NO.STASIS

This is the first installment from a private study group that was started a month or so ago. The artists involved are handpicked specifically for their creative ability within their chosen field, ranging from illustration and digital art to photography. Brief #1 concentrated on evolution of species within the environment. The choice of image here represents, irregular sturdy geometry, a spider nest, a shadow and the arachnid itself, four basic perceptions. Early days for the group, seeking to expand a web and print presence with a view to exhibit at a later date.

YAW / You Are We / theKDU

The format for these images will be self explanatory. Breaking out! Pushing some illustration medium in the first set and Logo in the second set. Simple black and white basics. The djinn character stands to represent various aspects of my perception of YAW. Completed first in Sketch and Acrylic on card, Scanned and then muscled into electrickery for some extra pressure from the Wacom.

Recently heading back to illustration to expand my horizons, the Sepia lick on this image was the final touch. A softer, although jagged approach to a huge statuesque presence and a type treatment to balance the composition with some various effects. Most pictures that I complete are image ready for 12″ x 12″ prints for ease of collating.

Inspired by the imagery and translation of Renaissance.

Abstract. Granted, to most it is just splashes of paint. The best way to understand it is to organically lay the paint to canvas in rhythm. This is reminiscent of Pollock and his ability to ‘action paint’. He has been a great influence on some of the fine art pieces from the studio, and also in engaging his form of expressionism within textures for print and experimental. Fluid yet harsh, organic yet chaotic. One of my personal favorites. ( close up pics of a small 90cm x 90cm canvas )

An invitation was sent en mass to submit a studio entry based on the TRON theme in collaboration with ADIDAS. Even though my designs were not picked, it may be worth a mention here. Initially the proposed images that were mocked up amounted to around 30, some repeat and remixed images with varied colorways reflective of the team colors in the new movie.

The strap line on the images was ‘FUTURESPORT’.

A healthy personal insight when attempting to handle a larger project in the correct manner.

This piece is an illustration from earlier in the year. It stands as one of my favorites for the reason that it was initially and respectfully a memorial piece. One of the more complex formats that i’ve tackled to push some personal creative boundaries. Using mainly Fireworks as the choice software to build the elements and Wacom as the choice of medium / media to test brushes and textures.

Koi 3Koi 2Koi 1Recent Illustration. After studying some personal written and documented examinations of Japanese woodblock printing and calligraphy, it was about time to get busy with a mix of Traditional & Digital work. The aim of the project was to create a smooth digital illustration incorporating the Edo period theme, a bold image, with a hand textured background using inks. Finished off with individual scales to offer some dimension and depth to bring the image to life.

V2

As common practice, when traveling, further afield or inland, ’spare time’ is not really down time. To feed creativity and research, it is just natural to gravitate towards ‘living’ creatively deepening Art interests. I have a great admiration for older architecture and construction methods aswell as photography. The opportunity to merge the two is a positive.

201 Ducati Orange 848 Superbike

This is a cool experimental piece. I located a template of a Ducati and really wanted to see a Geometric style decal work around the entire stream of the panels. Also, an idea to complete the graphic used would be to bring it down over the exhaust metals with an ‘anodized’ finish.

PUNKFORCEMAJORA type treatment and effect experiment. The central smashed effect and small background shards were all made of separate vector elements. The Smashed edges are a reworked graphic from the internet which was altered to move it away from the original. The type was slightly re-weighted with various layers / overlays to create the finished  graphic.

Cutters of Cloth logoCutters of Cloth Direction

Cutters of Cloth / ÆSTHETIC HABIT – For this project I worked closely with two highly talented individuals to develop a format and Art Direction for the initial impact of the web identity. The creation of  the logo infuses a hand made and rough cast image reflective of manual work. The profile for the project is to address a direct need for handmade independent fashion / high costume, with a balanced neutral Masculine & Feminine quality to the intended articles, using a mixture of Cloth, Leather, minimal color value and embellishments.

Art Direction, Photography & Print within dramatic scenery will be the main artistic visual driving force.
