Got a call from an old friend before Christmas. He moved to Stockholm and is now managing the rebuild of a website for European Bartender School. They had a really great idea of promoting the schools in Europe an beyond (Thailand anyone?) with passport style stamps. Encouraging students to travel and holiday while they learn
2013 is all about 21 day challenges. Each month has a goal to do something every day for 21 days. In January I did a Treehouse badge a day. For February the goal was to draw a cute animal every day. Here are the results!
This is the second in my series of Alphabet Animals. It plays on the well known saying, “Like a bull in a China shop!”, but with a twist. You can see the first one for ‘A’ here.
Before Niggles & Narks, in 2009, VCCP created an interim look and feel for O2’s broadband offering. This was fairly much a scribbly line drawing of a house with an equally scribbly headline. O2 wanted to show their broadband deals in-store, so I was teamed with a freelance Copywriter (Hi Dianne :-)), and we went about creating a sequence of screens for 19" touchscreens. Expanding and animating this simple identity.
In 2011 I draw a little bat asleep on pumpkin for Halloween. One year on I thought I’d add it here :-). I only used flat colour and no outlines. It’s a style I will be using more of in the future. Simple, clean shapes that lean towards being a bit geometric. Keeping it super cute. An animal and a prop.
I’ve started a personal project to illustrate animals in professions, one for each letter of the alphabet. I’m drawing them in alphabetical order. So far I’ve done four. An albatross, bull, cat and dog. This is "A" for Ablatross. I’ll post about the others later. When I have all 26 done I’ll also have a complete set of alphabet professions :-).
In 1998 I was living and working in Borneo (Brunei). With no internet at work or home nights I would often sketch or paint on the balcony overlooking the jungle. This one was painted on a small wooden panel that was left over from a project. A spirit guardian to look over our door. Loosely based on Korean Moonbae-do painting.
What’s it all about?
In 2009 The School Food Trust ran a campaign in England and Wales to raise money for WFP’s school meals. Schools were encouraged to register. Student could then create an avatar to sit at the virtual table, and pledge meals.
What’ this you say? “Bring along a CD of your favourite songs and chuck it in the lucky dip. Watch the newest of new indie pop bands. Spend the rest of the night dancing to the greatest twee tracks. Then take home a random mix-CD on the way out. Where do I sign up!”
