Here's a couple of landscapes from my ongoing project, involving rockets and buildings and such things. The plan for this story book is to have it printed as large as possible, much like my final major project book. And like that book, this story involves a long journey, and I like the idea of having a huge double page spread to read across, making the expanse of the journey seem as big as possible,

Etsy

It's hard to get decent, natural lighting in our flat. But today we finally had some sun in Brighton, so we broke out the camera and updated our product photos for the Etsy store. I think everything is looking much improved. To see the shop, click here.

Ho ho ho

Our Etsy shop sure is looking a little fuller these days, what with my cards for this year now up, plus the hand made decorations Charlie has been working away on busily. See for yourself at our ridiculously Chrtistmassy looking shop.

The first lot of this year's Christmas cards are up and ready to go at our Etsy store! Charlie's designs are new for this year and feature what she does best, some great illustrations of some festive animals.



More goodies coming soon!

UK film mag Little White Lies has had another creative brief running, this time to do with Nicholas Winding Refns' new film Only God Forgives. As if the prizes didn't make the competition alluring enough, Refn himself is actually judging the competition entrees, so I thought I best get involved! I started on the poster 5 days ago, but only had precious little time each evening from 6 til 10ish to work on it, so it was definitely an exercise in working to a deadline. Without having seen the film (out today) it's hard to know how well I've captured the film (if at all) and there were a hundred different layers and colours I continue to tweak and mess about with to slightly change the look of the poster, but this is it as of the competition deadline today. That and the alternate version.


The idea and design basically came from noticing Ryan Goslings simple wardrobe throughout most of the films trailer. Much of the time there (and in Drive) he wears a well fitting plain t shirt. I figured if he was a superhero, that would be his iconic super hero costume. With the t shirt switching between black and white, immediately I thought of the negative space it could create, as the more colourful neon lights the film is basked in surrounds him.
