Where's Me Pencil?

New blog action at Initiated by the unbelievably talented Tomás, myself and five other friends are contributing to it weekly, i'm on a Tuesday, the day after Tomás, talk about being shown up! So far i've just posted stuff from my life drawing class. I'm finding it really interesting to see what everyone else posts, there's a great mix of styles / approaches. Above is the latest, very beautiful, offering from Tomás.

It's only in it's second week, feel free to stroll over and check it out.

[r]evolution of a sun album cover mock-up

So I had some time on my hands and put together this for the upcoming [r]ev album, they're getting Con Cremin (amazing artist!) to do the actual cover, so really this was just an exercise for myself, the design for it was hanging around in my head for a while, so I said i'd get it out!

The lines represent solar / heat flares, they were created using the blend tool in Illustrator, very handy! Tutorial here, with really annoying ads that they make you sit through (grrr... I actually hate video tutorials, give me text anyday). The "Hell" text is hand drawn, based on patches the band used to have (recreated patch image below), and the "revolution of a sun" text is a free font ("existence") found on,

Can't wait to see the actual album cover! Con's stuff is unreal.

Cintiq Messing!

So I was at my friend Will's house the other day, and (finally!) had a go off his Cintiq, it's UNREAL! My new #1 most-wanted object of desire.

Here's our collaborative masterpiece! Haha, it reminds me of dodgy college projects & lots of messing!
