A more digestible written language.

Who doesn’t love a food pun? cut cookie dough letters to use as a title page and reverse image on my dissertation.
Written language and the abstraction it faces:

How can dyslexia be combated through typographic treatment?

Good Goose Logo: Motion Sequence

A quick motion graphic personal project inspired by Rorschach ink blots.

The logo is a scanned linocut of the goodgoose logo, this is layered over two layers of the same footage (one reversed) to create a symmetrical and abstract pattern of ink in water. What do you see in the pattern?

The audio used is the last 15 seconds of ‘Hold Me’ by Royal Teeth, available for mp3 download on Amazon:

Adversary Season on TCM!

Just to let you know how the TCM project is developing. I’ve used the initial sketches which I posted previously to create large scale linoleum prints as a foundation for 3 film posters, the layout has developed from the artwork being framed by space to an aggressive crop of the face; the dirty and distressed print making techniques work as a visual metaphor for the characters’ qualities in the films.

Lionel Atwill as Professor Moriarty from Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon

Jude Law as Harlen Maguire from Road to Perdition

*Update* Rather than post similar images again and again, I have replaced the images in this post with the final posters. Changes included manipulating the prints for more dramatic composition, refining the artwork used to remove some blotches and scratches in the paper, slightly muting the background colours and finally changing the layer blend effects so that the black ink is retained rather than absorbing some of the background colour – which previously made the whole image appear to be in the wrong hue.

Turner Classic Movies Presents: Adversary Season (Hypothetically)

Competing among my peers for an internship with TCM, I am to present A2 posters advertising a hypothetical movie season; Adversary Season being my choice. As a foundation for this, I will be rendering the faces of iconic adversaries. To keep you up to date with my progress, my initial sketches are below:

I’m kicking off my new online presence with some work from the past. This image was produced in the first year of my Degree (2011) as a creative response to the play DNA by Dennis Kelly. Revisiting work from my first year reminds me of where my education began, studying Art and Design at A level. Over the course of my final year at University I plan to combine the professional working processes that I have developed over the last three years with my natural creativity, to produce exciting work for my portfolio.
