New speculative book cover mock-up/ poster design I finished a few days ago, based on retro motorcycle posters and postcards. I had a lot of fun inking this piece and learned a few new techniques along the way.
This was my poster design for ARTCRANK London 2013. Above you can see an extremely sped up animation of how all the inking, colouring and layering came together.
I wanted to give it an old vintage feel with a personal twist, as I am half Dutch I included the word ’fiets’ meaning bike in Dutch.
The whole inspiration for the piece derived from the Campionato Mondiale, Ciclo-Cross 1965 poster.
The show was on display to the public last Saturday at Dog Eared Films, Kings Cross, London. Due to British rain affecting the attendance of punters on the day an extended exhibition and sale of my artwork will be up for grabs at Look Mum No Hands! during September.
Here’s a small video of the first film layer of my screen print for ARTCRANK London 2013 being created by the lovely folk at Luma Studio . Updates and images of the final artwork will follow, but for now why not visit this link > http://www.artcrank.com/london/ for details about the show.
Here’s the pirate swabbie that I created for the Poop Deck Project. He will be printed as a playing card and will be part of a deck of cards which you can purchase here. See more info at: http://www.poopdeckproject.co.uk/
