Last year the Museum of London hosted a competition as part of their ‘Our Londinium 2012′ exhibition which coincided with the London Olympics. As I did the illustrations for the exhibition they asked if I could supply a pair of custom doodled pair of VANS for a competition they ran for the year which was nationwide.
The style of the doodles was a step back from what I normally do due to custom requests for what was to be doodled!
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, just an update on my recent work with the museum of london for their new exhibition (releasing very soon! – 22nd June). I was asked to write a blog post for their website on the work I did and explaining how I approached the project. This can be read here…
Last year I was commissioned by the Museum of London to produce a series of illustrations as a visual identity for a new exhibition to coincide with the Olympics called ‘Our Londinium 2012′. They asked me to adapt my doodle style to incorporate modern day and roman objects to build a larger final image. The objects that would make up the final image were all chosen by the museum’s youth panel ‘Junction’. The same panel that chose the doodle style for the exhibition! (Cheers guys!). From the very start the nickname ‘The Doodlist’ was given to me, think it might catch on!
The illustrations will be used for the marketing and internal displays of the exhibition which runs from 22 June 2012 until 2014. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this project and meeting the panel that have helped organise it all. Can’t wait to see it all come together!
More info: “The Museum of London is working with young people and artists over two years to create bold and imaginative installations in its popular Roman Gallery and other key spaces in 2012.The project will feature new sculptures, creative films, animations and sound, witty and thought-provoking insertions of contemporary objects, drama performances, Latin-inspired poetry slamming and other exciting events…”
