To launch a school wide project looking at the development of Personal Professional Development at Gray's there was a Studio Open Day on the morning of the 21st of October 2015 where all students got a chance to visit studios across the school and departments to launch the event.
A range of posters were designed to promote the Open Studio Event and the wider remit for PPD in the school. These posters changed and provided more information on a weekly basis over the three weeks running up to the main event.
Poster boards around the building are often over full with poster promoting events for students through the semester so the branding for the PPD event was designed to be bold and able to stand against a range of other elaborate posters.
This illustration was created for a crime thriller which featured a female sleuth.
The brief was to create a new design for a book that was published a few years ago which would now be re-released as a digital download through Amazon.
With this in mind I tried to create an image that would stand out at a small scale and also not blend in with the current highly Photoshoped designs that are found in the Amazon books crime section.
Sadly the client decided not to go with my design but I still enjoyed the challenge of producing a illustration that would work with in the brief supplied.
I have just been commissioned to create thirty plus illustrations for a book called "Imagine: Why Not" by a South African author.
The project is well underway now with about ten illustrations completed so far and I will add further images to this page when the project is closer to completion.
This illustration is created for a local auther who required a book cover for a new SciFi book that will be released in early 2013. The book will be published as a limited edition hard back edition and also in a digital format online.
The book will also feature a small selection of illustrations to highlight key events in the story and this will hark back to the early days of Sci-Fi illustration in the 50's.
More information to come once the book is launched. The illustration is created in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop.
This is my first drawing in about ten years so its pretty rough. Apart from trying to remember how to draw a moving subject, I was also learning how to use my new Bamboo Pen and Touch made by Wacom.
Capturing my sons likeness while he was playing proved to be a challenge but I think it's a good start and next time I will try Photoshop.
Those of you that have been looking at my MozBlog over the last year will have picked up on my interest in Illustration. The arrival of my daughter in the summer of 2012 had slowed that process down but I plan to get going with this in 2016....maybe!
