Just a quick doodle for the day…
Last month I was asked to design an icon for the new ‘Muse 360′ app for iPhone. This was a celebration of the band ‘Muse’ playing Reading Festival 2011 and performing their 2nd album (Origin of Symmetry, 2001) in full. The app contains 360 degree footage of the performance with 4 different views and fully controllable – you basically get to be on stage with the band!
Download the app here: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/muse-360/id540893012?mt=8
Just a quick blog post to mention a brand new app from the team behind Computer Arts magazine who have recently set up the website ‘Creative Bloq‘. It’s a fantastic source of inspiration from graphic design, web design – all sorts! They have released an iPad app earlier this month which features regularly updated inspirational content for people to check out and get their creative juices flowing. Amongst the first few pieces of inspiration my ‘Imaginary Worlds’ piece was featured.
The app works well for looking at the detail of the 5ft drawing and has inspired myself to create an app just for the purpose of observing the illustration in higher zoom levels. (On a side note I’m looking at getting full size screen prints of this piece made, anyone interested?). There’s also a wide variation of awesome illustrations and such to enjoy.
Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it-check it out here:
These are some experiments and development I did, kinda looking into psychedelic artwork and how I can push the work. They all originated from the new muse album cover (http://musecdn.warnerartists.com/ugc-1/product/364/1143_feature.jpg) from which I ripped apart and created brand new visuals that remove the original association.
I used Photoshop and After Effects to achieve the images.
Good question, not much bar trying to create new pieces as part of the ‘imaginary worlds’ saga. Great word that, saga…
Anywho, I have also been learning new software and skills in the way of video and live action editing. (Been doing lots of video visuals as of late). This basically means controlling and adding effects to live video as it happens. I have been mainly using Max6 and After Effects to achieve some cools effects (even created my own guitar delay pedal in the process!). Some screenshots of the mad stuff I’ve come up with can be seen below, not sure how this will feed into my work, but we will see…
Just a doodle from today, bit of a different and childish style from the norm. Forgot to add a dinosaur though…
The video of my uni project from last year has finally been finished. This was made as part of the Pulled Apart by Horses Box Set I created which had the idea of a music box set within a prebuilt guitar – the only way of reaching it, by smashing it. The final video can be viewed below:
I’ve decided to create an awesome new newsletter for you lovely people to keep up to date with what I’m working on, be it print work, exhibitions etc. You won’t get bombarded I promise, short and sweet. I might start offering little bonuses to subscribers as well (backgrounds and downloads), so might be worthwhile signing up eh?
Go on, you know you want to!
You can signup by clicking the ‘newsletter’ tab at the top on the menu or by following this link here:
Wohey! ‘Our Londinium 2012′ is now open at the Museum of London! Go check out the hard work by the youth panel and the team over at the museum, lots of cool stuff to be seen as well as some of my doodles dotted around. Plus its free!
Watch the teaser trailer below that I helped illustrate for the promotion of it (this is also playing in the main entrance of the museum)…
Check out a preview video on what to expect from the exhibition:
Also my illustrations have been put in the Metro and Evening Standard yesterday (20th June) as promotion:
Not only that there are postcards and posters being placed around London. Now the special thing about the postcards is if you find one and return it to the museum you could win a custom pair of converse doodled by me! So get looking at cinemas and music venues to find them!
Hi guys, Muse have recently revealed the name and some music for their new album ‘The 2nd Law’. As I was working on a project last night I thought some of the visuals seemed fitting and decided to put them together to see what it would look like as an album cover. Here are some that I came up with. Representation of the breaking away from the norm (the dubstep hint) and referencing previous albums. These are of course not the real artwork so don’t take it as that. (I know what some of you muse fans are like).
