Visual Dairy 2

Here’s some more visual diary entries from the past month-ish.
I’ve tried my best to avoid talking about COVID/ Lockdown etc as much as possible, as hard as it was at times.

As this is (partially) univerity work, I was asked as part of the module to draw some entries with my eyes closed and honestly, I love them.

Collection // Sketchbook

As I produce most of my illustations digitally these days I’ve been experimenting with using sketchbooks and breaking away from just using them for.. well, sketches.

I’ve been collecting little random bits and pieces, some of it from my archive of junk, some of it new stuff that I’ve find and don’t want to use.

I have this whole book avaible for patrons to download as a PDF. Here’s a selection of pages from it.

Things that are included on these pages are:
– A photo of a little scooter type thing I took in Japan in 2017
– Some stamps from some old postcards I found in a cupboard under the stairs
– A collage of miscellaneous vintage scrapbook clippings
– A photocopy of a punk? from a magazine spread from college(??)
– A Dragon Ball GT trading card from holiday to spain in 2001
– Ticket from the second time I went to a Polysics gig
– The first printed, vinyl sticker I ever made circa 2008ish

No Wave

Salutations,

As I continue dipping my toe in to other forms of image making I’ve recently become quite fond of making things in this sort of vapor-wave/ Y2K aesthetic/ rave poster style. I’ve always been find of Takeshi Murakami but lately I’ve gotten very much back in to his work and that’s very much informing what I’ve been making.

Image created to used for a screen print

I’ve been thinking alot about iconography and reoccuring themes. With time, as and when I get the chance, I’ll be blurring the lines more and more between my illustration work and the more experimental stuff like the images in this post.
