October Sticker Bomb(s)

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Ignoring the fact that October is the month of my dad and sister’s birthdays, October is all about Hallowe’en… full stop!

Therefore, it seemed only right that my October stickers should be Hallowe’en themed.

Introducing my rogue’s gallery of notorious cinematic serial killers… presented as shitty 70s Panini football stickers.

Sneaky Illustrations

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There has been a personal project I have been dying to get started on for a while now – creating stylised vector illustrations of all the sneakers the wife and I own (we have quite an impressive and colourful collection).

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with these illustrations when they are finished. Create a large montage of the entire collection? Create individual montages defined by type, colour, brand or sub-brand? Will these images be printed out and possibly framed or will they remain digital? Style wise, will the illustrations be very accurate almost technical drawings or have a cartoonish look?

Too many questions. Who knows? All I know is it’s been on my ‘do-to’ list for quite a while and I decided to get started this week.

The first task was to photograph all the shoes in my collection so I have a reference image to work over in Adobe Illustrator.

Sneaker-Shoot

To make my job easier when it comes to illustrating each individual shoe, I needed all the shoes photographed from the same angle and lit consistently. Ideally that meant photographing them all in on go.

Sneaker-Thumbnails

What was interesting and something I hadn’t given any thought to beforehand was after viewing the images on the camera, I had the making of a pretty funky little slideshow.

Now the real fun begins… illustrating each individual shoe! No doubt I’ll be posting them on here as and when I complete them.

Middle of April, frost on my windscreen. England… pah!

I’d like to take credit for this ‘lovely’ piece of artwork but the wife did it. Not sure if she ‘hearts’ me or my car…!?

Ha! Out of all the 3D perspective pavement artwork kicking around at the moment, this is currently my favourite.
