I have been really enjoying the variety of work on the site. The illustrator uses collage in some editorials but is predominately working with cut out shapes (I’m guessing made in illustrator) and textures. This is a practice that i have been using more in my own work too.
Collage work sometimes mixed with vector work.
I stumbled upon this blog by a guy who is making art to accompany his music. A lot of photo collages mixed with illustrator, much of it would be classed as “Hipster” i guess but still nice things over here. I have seen this digital photo style before and still prefer to use handmade collages, it would be interesting to see some of his work created with real photos and a scalpel.

Some really great branding from Gerren Lamson. A huge versatile portfolio on the website including illustration, design, web design and branding.
I really like this cd cover and packaging, I would have liked to have a bit more creative freedom / time on the EP cover i was making. And be able to create something more along these lines… I am still happy with my end result however i think there is a lot of room for improvement. Maybe seeing more designs like this will help influence my next attempt.
The Drop is a design company founded by Nick Thompson. There are some layout ideas that i would like to influence my final hand-in books. (They also do some great web design)

Came across this web design, apart from being nicely designed it also considered how it will translate to mobile viewing which i thought was great. Reminds me that i might have to write a new style sheet for none-laptop viewing of the show site.
Although I’m not such a fan of the graphic (they aren’t bad, just “not my thing”), this is the kind of scrolling site that i had hoped the Aurora Borealis project had turned out like. I may experiment with this coding and re-vamp it after the Show site is complete.
Branding for a mobile app and website company called Artolo, which lets people buy/sell art from anywhere in the world. They also photographed these as 3D pins in real situations.

"A collaborative exhibition by four artists from both sides of the Atlantic. Oliver and Rory Jeffers live in Belfast. Mac Premo and Duke Riley live in Brooklyn, NY. For 36 weeks, a sketchbook travels back and forth between these four artists. Each has four days to create a spread in book. Each spread is a response to the one before it, and a call to the artist that follows. By the time it is exhibited under the Lagan Weir, from the 29th of April to the 7th of May 2004, book will have travelled over 60,000 miles."

Very envious of this image, I wish I had made it. In some ways you could argue that it is one of Bonaque’s simpler images but i think the idea and execution is spot on. It has lots of space for the cover image of a magazine allowing room for any text to be placed onto, perfect composition, and very nice use of slick vectors with more natural textures and colours. The characters may help influence my character design when working on the guardian brief.
A huge range of collage and screen prints from Jim O’Raw.

Les Tontons Racleurs screen printed images and patterns of onto the sides of little wooden cubes, that could then be rearranged to create new pictures. They also turned it into a short stop frame animation.
It is all in French so if you want to read…
There are so many wonderful photos / collages and a few illustrations in Dust & Desert Magazine, it’s hard to decide on which one to represent here. They are now on Issue 4 and selling quick. I would like to make a zine from my photography again, maybe with concept and a story / journey.
