I SEE THINGS // I LIKE THEM // I PUT THEM HERE //

I have been a fan of Blunts work for a few years

I have been a fan of Blunts work for a few years now, in fact he kindly did an interview for me in my 1st year in FdA. But recently his work seems to have come into its own a lot more. The editorials he creates are always clever and coherent, a great example when considering this line of work. (via www.mitchblunt.com)

Very surreal stuff going on in these painting

Very surreal stuff going on in these painting, with a great colour palette though. Not normally a fan of this ‘style’ of work, but i think Treadwell have developed a very individual interesting language. (via Jaime Brett Treadwell | Paintings)

5


Lovely cut outs

Lovely cut outs, and some great gocco screen prints too. I have recently been using cut outs with posca pens in my sketch books to replicate vector work, perhaps some should stay as cut outs if i gave them a bit more care. (via Shows | Ghostpatrol)

6


I have been enjoying vector work a great deal

I have been enjoying vector work a great deal more recently. Saw this on Its Nice That and was really impressed, the colour palette really helps set the fantasy scene. (via ISLA DE OMETEPE – JANINE REWELL)

I really like how much white space there is on

I really like how much white space there is on the Form Us With Love website. This could have been carried through to the degree show site, but 7


with so much information to fit in, it just became very busy. Maybe after work is done we could have a “clean up� (via Form Us With Love)

I rarely do whole pencil drawings like this guy

I rarely do whole pencil drawings like this guy but i still appreciate them. These images make me want to attack them with block colour and some vector too, get a good mix in there (which does come through on his cut outs). I like using pencil work alongside digital colouring normally, but these images are strong enough and engaging on their own. (via A View of Edo : Liam Stevens)

8


I see a far amount of work like this around

I see a far amount of work like this around, I think it has become a sort of trend in design, and I realised that this also was coming through in some of my experiments. I do still like it and appreciate the grids and layout, however it has made me think about idea vs aesthetic… and if simply creating nice looking work is enough for some people. I had always been stronger in the “idea” side of work, and believe it’s very important, however over the previous few projects i have been trying to strengthen my visual language and technical skills. I don’t want to lose my strength in the idea area, but instead find a balance and build up both skills. This is why i think editorials may be a good exercise for me rather that just trying to create “nice images” for something as it were. (via ··· Pablo Abad ···)

I was shown this scrolling website by a friend

I was shown this scrolling website by a friend. From what i can tell its using flash however i have come across several Jquery websites with a similar design. I would like to try and apply some scrolling animating to my Aurora Borealis project for the final site. (via Soleil Noir 2012 | We believe in‌)

10


I have been really enjoying the variety of work

I have been really enjoying the variety of work on the site. The illustrator uses collage in some editorials but is predominately working with cut out shapes (I’m guessing made in illustrator) and textures. This is a practice that i have been using more in my own work too. (via cristóbal schmal : nomono)

I stumbled upon this blog by a guy who is making

I stumbled upon this blog by a guy who is making art to accompany his music. A lot of photo collages mixed with illustrator, much of it would be classed as “Hipster� i guess but still nice things over here. I have seen this digital photo style before and still prefer to use handmade collages, it would be interesting to see some of his work created with real photos and a scalpel.

I really like this cd cover and packaging

I really like this cd cover and packaging, I would have liked to have a bit more creative freedom / time on the EP cover i was making. And be able to create something more along these lines‌ I am still happy with my end result however i think there is a lot of room for improvement. Maybe seeing 14


more designs like this will help influence my next attempt. (via Rivers & Robots Packaging | Ogvidius)

The Drop is a design company founded by Nick Thompson. There are some layout ideas that i would like to influence my final hand-in books. (They also do some great web design) (via Asuza | The Drop)

Came across this web design

Came across this web design, apart from being nicely designed it also considered how it will translate to mobile viewing which i thought was great. Reminds me that i might have to write a new style sheet for none-laptop viewing of the show site. (via Julia Parris Photography | website design)

Although I’m not such a fan of the graphic (they

Although I’m not such a fan of the graphic (they aren’t bad, just “not my thing”), this is the kind of scrolling site that i had hoped the Aurora Borealis project had turned out like. I may experiment with this coding and re-vamp 16


it after the Show site is complete. (via Layrr – Réseau d’entraide pour les créatifs)

Branding for a mobile app and website company

Branding for a mobile app and website company called Artolo, which lets people buy/sell art from anywhere in the world. They also photographed these as 3D pins in real situations. http://www.artolo.com/ (via Artolo – Northbank)

“A collaborative exhibition by four artists from both sides of the Atlantic. Oliver and Rory Jeffers live in Belfast. Mac Premo and Duke Riley live in Brooklyn, NY. For 36 weeks, a sketchbook travels back and forth between these four artists. Each has four days to create a spread in book. Each spread is a response to the one before it, and a call to the artist that follows. By the time it is exhibited under the Lagan Weir, from the 29th of April to the 7th of May 2004, book will have travelled over 60,000 miles.” (via BOOK)

Very envious of this image

Very envious of this image, I wish I had made it. In some ways you could argue that it is one of Bonaque’s simpler images but i think the idea and execution is spot on. It has lots of space for the cover image of a magazine allowing room for any text to be placed onto, perfect composition, and very nice use of slick vectors with more natural textures and colours. The characters may help influence my character design when working on the guardian brief. (via Borja Bonaque – People – Agency – YCN)

21


There are so many wonderful photos / collages and

There are so many wonderful photos / collages and a few illustrations in Dust & Desert Magazine, it’s hard to decide on which one to represent here. They are now on Issue 4 and selling quick. I would like to make a zine from my photography again, maybe with concept and a story / journey. (via D/D MAGAZINE ONLINE)

22


Came across this fellow student’s work when

Came across this fellow student’s work when browsing the Brighton Illustration site. Something about this piece particularly caught my eye. The bright vibrant block prints really work well. (via Joanna Rutter – Illustration)

23


Whilst doing a bit of research for the Mixed

Whilst doing a bit of research for the Mixed Special website, I came across the site and catalogue for the “Brighton Graphic Design & Illustration 2011 Graduate Show�. This site is fairly standard but nice, however i was particularly impressed with the catalogue. It uses clean simple design coupled with their ident to keep a big (160page) book still compelling to view, and not become tedious through predicable layout. (via Graduate Show Branding : Danielle Blay)

24


“CMYRGB is a series of 24 gradient color

“CMYRGB is a series of 24 gradient color combinations which exist simultaneously as digital files and physical objects. The digital versions are looping 3 second GIF animations, while the physical counterparts are lenticular prints suspended in Lucite enclosures. The gradient palette is based on the subtractive and additive color systems cyan-magenta-yellow and redgreen-blue.” (via Anthony Antonellis)

25


I have recently been trying to get used to

I have recently been trying to get used to working with Adobe Illustrator, and since starting this i have become far more aware of the benefits of vector work. I don’t ever intend to get rid of my hand-drawn and photoshop work (hopefully combine them) but I have noticed I’m beginning to appreciate clean graphic images such as this from Part & Parcel. (via Part & Parcel • The GOOD Guide to College Preparedness)

I enjoy how elements of these editorials have broken out of the set border, this may be something to consider for Guardian work (via Jon Wong: Beast in a Neon Cage)

Video Apart from being a huge Yuksek fan, I also appreciated this video for its cleverness. It has reminded me of a video i had made when i was 163 . It couples this idea with the prop-style aesthetic much like This Is It Collective4 ‘s work. (via Off the Wall on Vimeo5 )

Saw this advert on youtube, thought the palette was an interesting choice for a very saturated medium. Turns out they’re a sort of ‘The Drums’ sounding band, and the cover suits the music… whether that means its good or bad is down to interpretation.

CONTEXTUAL STATEMENT

Since joining the BA I feel that my work have developed quite rapidly, whilst also retaining my core interests. I started the course with very personal sketchbook orientated work that may not have suited commercial success outside of my previously recognised “zinester” audience. However after a summer of rediscovering my interest in photography collage, I started to experiment with design grids, and introduced vector elements into my hand drawn work. After conducting several test pieces, and experiments in colour palettes, I feel that a personal visual language is beginning to form. Prior to this year my coding skills were at a basic level, but after undertaking the job of creating the End of Year Show site, working from tutorials online and magazines, I have learnt far more about web design than I expected. I am continuing to improve my JavaScript knowledge and expect my Jquery abilities to improve

174

with my personal projects. This has brought a new level of interaction to my work and although I would prefer it not to be my primary career, having the coding knowledge has already opened up more opportunities for myself. I still have a strong interest in self-publishing and this was amplified as I carried out my research for the context unit work. I take pride in creating handmade books and prints with a professional finish. Since I have acquired my own screen-printing equipment and had access to the Risograph, the idea of setting up a printing press or shop, such as Ditto press and Lazy Oaf, has greatly appealed to me. In the future I would consider sharing a studio with others as I enjoy working in a collective, such as I do for ‘Cut Me Up’ or did in the Mixed Special design team. Although currently my work is still in development I feel it is taking a more commercial route, which could mean possibly joining a studio or freelancing. Through recent commissions I have found myself taking a more professional approach to briefs and enjoyed practicing commercial skills, such as layout, editorials and branding, that could lead to a marketable audience later and will later benefit me as working illustrator.


//Pretext// My original proposal for the Unit 11 assignment was based upon a self-publishing personal project called; ‘Cut Me Up’, which celebrated the obnoxious celebrity culture through an illustrated zine. Through this collective zine with illustrator Erd Yakingun, I have became fascinated by the cult movie The Room, often described as “the worst movie ever made”. I immersed myself in this cult trend; embracing the terribleness of the movie and intended to create a celebration pack or pastiche of this “meme generating” film for new or existing fans. This publication is now ready, and is available from various online shops and at our own website or zine stalls. It will also be distributed on the 10th February at a Prince Charles Cinema special screening of The Room featuring a Live Q&A session with director Tommy Wiseau. Although it started with the initial aim of being a “Viewers Guide To… The Room”, it quickly developed into a pastiche, which appealed to fans with a preexisting knowledge of the movie. However we also found that many people appreciated the zine and illustration on an aesthetic level, and would then research its content subject if they hadn’t already seen the movie or heard of the cult like following. Normally the response was similar to ours and they would join in on ‘the joke’, which made for an interesting case about how the humor and psyche of the “its so bad its good” psychology works. However my intentions for this work have changed.

REVISED I.P.S.

I have recently found that I am less interested in solely continuing ‘The Room’ project for the duration of the year. I feel that ‘Cut Me Up’ as a brand has developed passed being just a platform for my alternative working language, and after my Unit 9 research, I believe it has the potential to contribute to the self-publishing community in different ways. Already a new website is in development, with plans of a ‘featuring and reviewing’ section to help give others exposure and embrace the zine community. We have also recently been contracted to create a line of recycled sketchbooks, like our own, for the London Fashion & Textile Museum. In addition to this I have also been undertaking smaller personal commissions and creating selfpromotional work. These include album art works, flyers, entering competitions and self-set tasks; such as setting up a shop. Through working on these in conjunction with the Unit 10 project and Unit

175


9 research, I have found that I am developing my personal visual language and gathering a better understanding of the illustration as a profession. This is why I have come to the conclusion that continuing my work and research around commercial illustration briefs would be far more beneficial to my practice as an illustrator. Currently I have seven definite projects to be continuing with; album art work and branding for the band Narrow Plains, creating the Mixed Special show website, a Talent House and Mastadon competition, creating the flyer art for a Nottingham club night, creating and running the new ‘Cut Me Up’ website, producing the LFT sketchbooks and setting up a completely new online shop revolving around selling limited edition screen printed tote bags. On top of this I would like to start practicing my editorial designs since they were an interest of mine in the FdA second year and I have chosen the Guardian external project. For these I could work from old, though I would prefer to work on live projects, possibly online journals that need constant editorials made, such as Computer Arts Magazine or Creative Boom. For most of these works I expect to mainly use my hand rendered drawing then use Photoshop and illustrator to add colour and vector elements to them. Through the Unit 10 project I have started to discover colour palettes and working method I think can develop into a strong language for my practice. My project work has also been influenced by 176

the web designing assignments I have been working on, and my expanding knowledge in web coding. As part of the online tote shop I will not only be utilizing my coding techniques, but also using fabric screen printing methods; a skill I have practicing recently through my own shop products. A great source of inspiration for this came great from ‘The Tote Bag’ by Jitesh Patel, which features an impressive collection of reviewed tote designs and an insight into the product market. Other successful shops such as the No Brow store, Super Super Facial and Lazy Oaf will provide an insight into the workings of a creative shop. Business and promotion skills will also have to be researched for this store, Alex Mathers from Red Lemon Club provides free knowledge for creatives and in particular freelancers on such subjects. Through these projects I hope to develop my work and get a better understanding for possible freelance work or studio work after university.
