H.G.Wells Covers

Final book cover designs for a selection of H.G.Wells titles. I'm also in the process of producing them as screen prints too.

In other news, there is a good chance that you will find my work at the New Designers Exhibition in July this year - Coventry University's Illustration stand. So excited, I couldn't begin to tell you!

It's all taking longer than I had hoped

Ohhhhh, what a nightmare. I have had such a busy week, and yet because of one set back or another I feel like I have accomplished less than I should have.

I would have printed the shirts today because I re-made my 'Home' screen, but I had re-made it smaller thinking the original was too big. I was wrong. The screen was too small! So then I cleaned the screen and made another one, but I fear it's gone a bit dodgy and I may have to re-do it AGAIN. So, no apparel yet. I should be concentrating on my final project though so I will print the shirts after Monday.

On the final project front (which I haven't really recorded on the internet, mainly due to a late start and numerous stresses surrounding it), I have been spending late nights in the university computer studios trying to get everything sorted for hand-in on Monday. I've almost finished screen printing my final design for 1 of the book covers - the others, alas will have to remain digital because I just don't have time (or the screens - I'm printing 2 colour, A2).

I'll end this with a little peek at some very initial sketches. I'm not going to beat around the bush - somebody on my course poached my bicycle idea almost exactly. It is not coincidence. May the worm of conscience begnaw thy soul.

Coloured 'Home' Print Arrives

At last I have made the coloured 'Home' print available in the shop. I still haven't located all of the prints but I am sure I printed 8 on the first run, so these are First Edition out of 8.

That is all - other than the customary plea to buy my work. I'm moving house soon and I don't want my new home to be a sleeping bag underneath the ring road!

T-shirts Ordered

Late last night I ordered a few plain white t-shirts - 3 small, 1 medium for now - just to see how the prints go. I ordered a sweater in heather grey aswell because a friend expressed interest in having the print on a jumper. I'll try to get some semi-professional pictures of these when they're done to put on here and the shop.

If you're interested in apparel just drop me an e-mail and I'll see what I can do. After the next few weeks I'm going to have a lot more time (and hopefully, money) on my hands to focus on this kind of thing.

Big Cartel

Whilst I remember, here is a link to my Big Cartel shop.

There's only one print for sale at the minute because I need to figure out numbers for any others. I'm also considering taking orders for t-shirts as a few people have expressed interest. I just need to get my arse graduated, then I can take this "selling my work and making a career" thing seriously. Just bare with me.

Yet another password to remember

Greetings. I have to write this even though I've nothing of interest to say, because my blog looks bare and this irritates me.

I already have a Tumblr but I decided I needed a Blogger too. I will in no way maintain them both because I am crap at these internetty things. My Tumblr became a place to sporadically post things I found interesting or nice to look at, as opposed to my initial intention of documenting my illustration endeavors.

Now, this is for my illustration.
