I'm considering doing more of these cereal boxes and packaging things just for fun. It's sort of relaxing to work on.
I think that in future I may just use MS Paint or an oekaki board (long overdue!) to do this sort of thing because Photoshop sort of fails a little with it...
Also I am going to try putting more (wonky) backgrounds into things...maybe.
The words are the lyrics to Katy Carr's song Snake's Kiss. I also altered the Rabbit booklet a little bit and exchanged the words for Florence + The Machine's Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) lyrics. Both still need a lot of tweaking in order to work, though, and all the altering of things these days is making me feel a bit rubbish.
I have a new workspace now at one of our closer campuses (Howard Gardens)... But it has not increased my rate of productivity (actually I think it may be hindering it)... Also I need lessons in how to make workspaces pretty (and inspiring and cosy and encouraging and happy).
Found something to occupy my mind for the next few days (maybe even a week!). Really just a bit of fun, but also works as part of my Real World module. Here are some of the sketches:
So now I'm prepping this for printing, but I may try messing about with it later to make it more entertaining in some way...
Also, I recently had a mess about with animating on Adobe Flash (first time ever) and it was SUPER fun! Unfortunately I cannot share the crap that I came up with because I can't figure out how to make it save as something more shareable than a ".fla"?? ...Any suggestions??
This forty-nine page book represents all of my cognitive processes over the past few months (since about May 2010 to January 2011). I have realised that I wouldn't mind helping people proof-read their work for a little extra cash.
This is a project I'm working on for my Real World module. After getting my dissertation printed and sending it to be bound(!!), I printed off the file for this booklet. I just cut and folded it MOMENTS AGO!
"Don't get your gross baby juices all over my new doctor coat."
"B-but I just saw you give that patient a lobotomy!"
"Hahahah! No, no, what you just saw was me putting a cabbage in that man's brain cavity."
"I am sorry; I cannot help you."
I was working on some illustrations for the 2010 World Book Day bid.
In four phrases, the story is about: a kid, cool shoes, lame shoes and a Celtic wish-granting statue nicknamed "The Sleeper".
I wasn't going to bother entering anymore because I didn't have enough ideas for it and I wasn't sure how to go about tackling the few other ideas I had in the same style that I'd done the above illustrations. But then I saw this guy's amazing blog and was inspired to work really loosely (which is what my stuff looks like before I tighten it up anyway!)! Then I came up with these:
Not sure if the top one is too messy or what, but I still like them both. I might slap a texture or something over the top of them and see how I feel later...
