UpBeat open mic

took my laptop and tablet out on a little field trip to a small and friendly open mic night, first attempt at live sketching digitally: great success.

this one was my first go, I used a 'pencil' custom brush but didn't quite get on with it.

 all of the rest above were done with this preset which gave really nice expressive lines

The Scarecrown Wizard

So I had the pleasure of creating the cover for this new release from Portugal based producer 'RoomNineUnilimited' (real name Paulo Fernandes)

The album itself is an explortation of ambient electronica verging on the lighter side of progressive psychedelic trance. Paulo had found my work through a previous album cover that I had worked on and was perfectly content to give me free reign as far as the design went.

check out more music from Room Nine Unlimited here:

summer ends

Sooo, finally landed back at home after another long summer mostly spent outside in various fields involving 7 festivals and one european juggling convention.

Had the pleasure to do some Decor work for Symmetry festival and Mischief festival this year, nothing quite beats living in a field for a week, waking up armed with paints and powertools every day.

inital sketches for 'live stage'

I was later told the live stage had already had a theme decided upon, but they thought the fans could fit in anyhow:

and then I was given a piano to paint as another st
age dressing prop.

Architectural Review

Editorial Illustration for this months Architectural Review, the article is about programming, software and creativity in architecture.
I had alot of fun doing this piece, its an image playing with shape, space and texture communicating abstract digital ideas yet grounded with the use of found and scanned textures/hand made drawings.
