Genius and lover

To begin today's post. I have to commend a favourite artist of mine. Musical artist that is, but also their choice in video for their new single is what I'm talking about.

Röyksopp's most recent single titled "Happy Up Here" is amazing sounding. Reverting slightly to their debut album "Melody A.M." but with more upbeat and light beats. Really brings me back to when I started listening to them. I thought I would share the new video and promote them as much as I can. Also the director, Reuben Sutherland is a genius with the space invaders theme and even just the intro to the entire video, with the fast paced cuts, just amazingly done. I cannot speak any less about this video. So now just enjoy it!


Also to note, I have been a busy bee lately working on some stuff for class. These two pieces were for my ad concept class about HIV/AIDS education and safety in schools. I chose out of the three (abstinence, safer sex and global awareness) abstinence and safer sex as seen in the two posters below. I'm going to try and get some more personal work up on here, it's more free minded that way but for now school rules.

KL's the man

Today while passing some time before a project pitch to a client I began looking more into the Spring 2009 Milan fashion pieces and came across Karl Lagerfeld's designs for Fendi. I really fell in love with them and felt like sharing. The main parts of the collection is what I liked the most. Laser cut fabrics with structural bell shaped bottoms, and amazing hints of sheer fabrics. Not to mention the amazing belts. Love the belts, they really keep everything in tact. It really marries a futuristic look to the almost medieval tapestry aesthetic. I love this collection and KL is one of my favourites for sure.

Setting the future.

So tonight while thinking back to the past I thought I would go through my old sketchbook and see what I could find. I didn't find much because I didn't use my sketchbook like I do now but I came across this little piece that I am very much in love and it foreshadows what I have a passion for I believe. Good ole typography. Wasn't thinking too much on concept of the type, but just an exploration of hand-rendering type.

A finished piece!

Been a busy little bee, but like I said I would do, I wanted to add some text to this shit! So I had an epiphany this morning and had to do it, I'm late for my class as a result!

Some 'paintings'

Last night I 'painted' these. I put paint in quotation marks only because it's done in photoshop. Some fun stuff I was playing around with.





Composition is a little awkward because this piece needs type... but won't be done anytime soon. I hate McD's
