PERFUME

☟ is my book cover for Perfume by Patrick Süskind for the Penguin Design Award.
 


I think doing book covers is nice practice. But it was tricky trying to get it practical and communicate what I wanted. I tried to make a solid vapour/smoke thing from tape.




This is messing about with the type. Making a city from the bits.


I fancy some animation now...

FRIEZE ART FAIR ETC.

Saw a lot at the Frieze Art Fair on sunday. It was too packed to really do much but binge on it, but it was good. I liked the look of these:










A lot of my photos got refl/affected by the glossy frames. 



ALSO I've been listening to this song lots lately. I didn't know anything about Jim Carroll till he died last month, but just the way he sings this is great.

SUMMER

Some pictures I drew over summer...



This is an attempt at experimenting with the picture plane/angles etc. It's really just a drawing I did loosely based on the word 'hope', but not very loosely.




 
And I tried to make some dynamic drawings, because my work normally ends up a bit static and uptight. ^this is a girl skipping.

BLOG!

I have a blog now.
Here's some pieces I did last year, that I was ok with.


I went to Chicago with University in March. This is a piece about
the sounds and conversations I heard when I was walking about.

I made this video from films I shot in Chicago. It's about the structure of the city, and other things.



This is an animation inspired by the song Army Ants by Tom Waits.



I won't put too much old stuff up, hopefully I come out with something new soon. And I should update pretty regularly.
