Just completed the design work on a couple of magazine adverts for ispective.
They are releasing an iPhone/iPod Touch app aimed at football fans which contains an encyclopaedic knowledge of every thing World Cup based i.e. “every tournament, every match, every team, every manager, every player, every goal and much more.”
Let’s just say I’ve had better weeks. Fingers crossed the week commencing 26th is much better.
Just completed the illustration and design work on the book cover for Whiny Little Bitch – The Excuse-Filled Presidency of Barack Obama. As the intro on the back cover says, “Whiny Little Bitch is your guide to the most embarrassing presidency since the Carter Administration”.
The author of this book requested a cover design based around the now famous, Shepard Fairey ‘Hope’ & ‘Progress’ posters – but in this instance showing the President in a negative light. Therefore, we went down the route of showing Mr Obama crying like a baby.
Please note, I’m a British graphic designer with absolutely no political interest whatsoever, and certainly no interest in American politics. If the content of this book and subject matter of the illustration offends you, I’m sorry – I’m just trying to earn a living.
Update: This book is now available to order on Amazon.com
