My drive to Leeds…

While thinking about potential poster ideas for the Thompson ‘XXX’ exhibition, I jotted down loads of thoughts and feelings about my experiences of Leeds. And this doodle pretty much summed it up…

Thompson’s 30th

Posted by: | Comments (0)

From January 2004 until December 2007, I freelanced at Thompson Brand Partners in Leeds. When I say freelance, it was more ‘permalance’ – I was there pretty much solidly for four years!

TBP are celebrating their 30th birthday this year – many congratulations by the way – and to celebrate their birthday, they recently held an exhibition in Leeds city centre.

30 current and ex-employees were asked to produce a personal piece of work for the exhibition and I was chuffed that Ian Thompson asked me to contribute.

Being a personal piece, I felt it was only appropriate to do something Kreative Bomb related.

Say hello to one of the Kreative Bomb Brothers — a series of characters I have developed for use on my website/marketing collateral.

He’s a bit out of shot because unfortunately, the photographer isn’t very good.

Typographic Nerdfest

Have you ever looked at your font list and thought… “There are some really cool band names here”? Or is that just me?

For a while now I have fancied doing a parody festival poster comprising bogus bands that are named after typefaces.

Memorable Years

Personal project I have been meaning to do for years… pardon the pun.

I think it’s pretty obvious what the two years signify don’t you think?

Sneaky Illustrations

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There has been a personal project I have been dying to get started on for a while now – creating stylised vector illustrations of all the sneakers the wife and I own (we have quite an impressive and colourful collection).

I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do with these illustrations when they are finished. Create a large montage of the entire collection? Create individual montages defined by type, colour, brand or sub-brand? Will these images be printed out and possibly framed or will they remain digital? Style wise, will the illustrations be very accurate almost technical drawings or have a cartoonish look?

Too many questions. Who knows? All I know is it’s been on my ‘do-to’ list for quite a while and I decided to get started this week.

The first task was to photograph all the shoes in my collection so I have a reference image to work over in Adobe Illustrator.

Sneaker-Shoot

To make my job easier when it comes to illustrating each individual shoe, I needed all the shoes photographed from the same angle and lit consistently. Ideally that meant photographing them all in on go.

Sneaker-Thumbnails

What was interesting and something I hadn’t given any thought to beforehand was after viewing the images on the camera, I had the making of a pretty funky little slideshow.

Now the real fun begins… illustrating each individual shoe!

Lego Self-Portrait

This piece really needs no explanation.

It’s Lego. It’s me. And a ridiculous frame.

Mondrian Lego

If I had any Lego, I’d have done this using real pieces and photographed it.
