not for want of trying

[click for big]

for some silly reason blogspot wouldn't let me upload this image the normal, conventional way so i've had to fill the photobucket and go that way. not like it's really that important, mind...

occurrence: no country for old men, too much dr pepper, dead lines, sketchbooks, attempted allnighter, fisheye, dead swans ''sleepwalker'', this will destroy you s/t, new dexter, leaving the edge of the world for rear echelon, continuation of the continue...

conceptual thinking / quotes.

just a quick one from our deadline today based on a brief entitled quotes. pick a quote from a list of 10, work up some rough ideas on conceptualizing it into a self-descriptive image then produce a final for crit. we've been doing this for 4/5 weeks now - going away and getting out heads around fairly linear briefs and slowly i've been introducing a few more things into each piece of work. not so much this specific final as i was stretched for time and a printer to get the results i wanted, but i'm fairly happy with it anyway. more of these when i unearth them from my desk.

upcoming; last con/think brief, finish up tone/colour work, last life drawing class for the term, progress on book then away from a week in london to visit agencies and industry folk alike, as well as galleries and the like. going early to spend my birthday doing something in the city then hopefulyl going to catch DILLINGER 4 (fuck yes!) then off to bristol, down to minehead for MODEST MOUSE, battles, sunno))), explosions in the sky, yeah yeah yeahs and many, many more. oh yeah, then home. fuck, i'm looking forward to that so much. i need a break so badly, but this month is going to be so busy with some proper class things to do so whatever, let it roll.

a little bit of solidarity goes a long way

ongoing/spare time and/or otherwise. i haven't much to show because everything is amongst my clever filing system of putting things under my desk and not touching them until the end of the year during the mad rush for assessment so that i do not get kicked off the course. here's what i do have. 

a to d: i) illustrated book quick mock-up, ii) more full artwork mock-up of centerpiece gate fold image, iii) messing about with some old designs and textures and iv) something for fun, testing my scanner's dpi out.

on the non-pencil related front, falmouth is bastard ace. i have met a right standard amount of blessed folk to swear at and rant amongst. i say amongst and mean at as well as swear but whatever. illustration is tough but fair... much like boot camp. 'nam is tougher but it lacks wednesday afternoons off. 

audiophilia: rinoa, bossk, asiwyfa, ghost of a thousand, mum, dallas green, etc.

visions: too many movies, spaced and the wire season five.
