And the nominees are...

Films I'm planning on including in this film drawing project:
Little Miss Sunshine
The Thing
Groundhog Day
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Twelve Monkeys
Dead Mans Shoes
Harold and Maude
Capturing the Friedmans
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

I'm open to suggestions, to some extent.

Ich mochte MATCHING POSTERS bitte!

I did these two posters for when we toured Germany last year. It turned out there were posters already made for us when we got there and theres a chance there were more posters than gigs.
I did manage to create a couple of pleasing fonts anyway.

Namby Pamby is the new black

I did this logo for my band without thinking about how it could be used - it kind of implies that we use harps and piccolos a lot more than we actually do. I also did the cd artwork and some badge/tshirt designs.
For proof that our soppiness is minimal, have a listen.

I ain't no suit-wearin' businessman like you...

There are so many characters to choose from in 'The Wire' - I settled on sixteen. Initially this was going to be a t-shirt design, but I think it'll work better on a tea towel.

You come at the king, you best not miss.

Das Boton Gig

I've been learning to use Illustrator - this is my first attempt at making something from scratch.

This is my boy, H.W...

Here's a new project - each week, I plan to complete a drawing based on a film.

Thats it.

I made a list of films that are good, starting here with 'There Will Be Blood', but I may not limit myself to the good ones. I mean, surely there's room for a picture of Nicholas Cage vs The Bees?

All aboard

Ok, here we go.

In this picture, the ship represents this blog - a gargantuan barnacled home for the forseeable future. And then there's me, nervously clutching a big burlap banana full of drawings, posters and garish tat. These are uncharted waters for me, but I'm looking forward to navigating them.

Until I set up a new online portfolio, you can find a lot of work done over the past few years here at my website. Its a pretty confusing jumble - I've been effectively using it as a blog these past few years, minus any organisation or recognisable timeline.

I also have a number of posters on gigposters.com

Anyway, more to come!
