Yep Game of Thrones series four is upon us. I was asked by Bottleneck Gallery to make a piece for their 'Winter is Here' show. Due to a growing number of family members I missed the deadline, but i still finished it just to see how it would have turned out.
This is my submission for Blurppy's Poster Posse Project 6, X-MEN Days of Future Past. As much as i love the design of the original sentinels in the comics i grew up with, I think there is something very cool yet menacing about the redesign. With that in mind i wanted to show the possible dystopian future that awaits all if track wins.
This is my recent creation. 'Cthulhu the Destroyer' it started out life as one of Ubisoft's DIY art toys 'Eerz'. This is part of an office initiative at Red Central (my place of work). I had hundreds of ideas of what i could make using the blank rabbit and i settled on the idea of HP Lovecraft's 'Cthulhu'. This was the first time i used milliput to sculpt the features, and this project took four evenings from start to finish.
I was lucky enough to be asked by Mike Peters of 'The Alarm' to re-design the album cover of 'Declarlation' for their 30th aniversary tour this year. Below is the fruit of my labour plus some extra graphics to be used on the tour.
This is what Mike Peters had to say about the album cover.
The album's artwork has even had a major overhaul and is no less impressive. "I met a young designer named Daniel Shearn who has done some sterling work in graphics for film and theatre companies I was aware of, and commissioned him to redraw a new Declaration sleeve. I was not expecting the vision he brought to the project. As soon as I saw what Daniel had done, I could see instantly that he had kept the integrity of the original and added to it. It totally works with the new album, yet still reflects the spirit of the original most beautifully".
I am starting this new year with the mantra to be more involved with other online communities of artists & bloggers. I have recently joined the illustrious Poster Posse and below is my first contribution. Don Thompson who curates Blurppy runs the posse and he controls the projects, previous projects have been World War Z, Pacific Rim & 47 Ronin.
The Poster Posse is made up of artist from all walks of life from all over the world, so many talented individuals and i feel lucky to be part of this.
These are my posters.
How they should be seen together as if they are facing off.
I was approached recently by the lead singer of the 80's band 'The Alarm' to develop some tattoo inspired versions of their iconic poppy logo. Of course i jumped at the idea to do anything tattoo based. I met Mike to get the brief, in a local bar in Bath, the man was down to earth, no heirs and graces, and seems to be the hardest working person in rock, the guy is always gigging.
