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.

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.

Making Tea Underwater – Tea Mixing in Water – Conceptual Test Footage

Video

Concept test footage for a project I’m undergoing at University, branding tea as a key element to English culture. Currently sans-branding. I’m hoping to re-shoot the footage in studio to avoid the reflections and to obtain higher resolution footage. Footage currently slowed to ~70% (with slight variance to fit the motion to the audiotrack)

Foodfile Collaboration

Mid 2013, I was responsible for the net design and artworking of the ‘FoodFile’, a joint social action project between UCS and FIND food banks; this project was to provide households receiving food parcels with friendly and non-patronising recipe ideas and advice.

The project was completed in a group, within which we all took responsibility for several tasks. The design (encompassing net and artworking) was my responsibility, with our teams illustrator Michael Barrett drawing the vine for the wallet, which we then placed together.

Wallet design, net and artworking excluding vine are solely my own work.
