So I went and made this wee placeholder, after going to a friends cottage and messing about with the fire.

(I suppose this is actually something creative, ha!)

Napalm Vapes

Custom logo design for an up and coming company, Napalm Vapes. That I have been working on, from start to finish.

These fine folks allowed me to have free reign over their design and I couldn’t be more proud of the outcome. And to say I am blown away by their response to the final product, would be an understatement!

Total time taken, {from initial sketch Nov. 2015, to completion Jan.2016} approx 4+ hours. Created on Strathmore™ 400 Series 80lb (130g) acid free drawing paper, with Faber-Castell 9000 design H pencil and Pigma MICRON™ archival ink pens.

If you are looking for design work, for yourself or a start up. Please don’t hesitate to drop me a line and we’ll see what we can come up with :]

Remember that little project I signed up for? (Ref: This post) Well, it has been completed, and mailed off to the Brooklyn Art Library! Hopefully they have received it by now; and are in the process of setting up the swap and digitizing everyone’s wee gessobord™ works of art.

I cannot wait to see what artwork I shall receive, as well as being able to view the rest of the participants works. This really was a fun project to work on and I look forward to the next one!

The Ampersand Project

tumblr_msytzqBpb41qcd494o1_500

The newest project from Art House Co-op; A fun art swap!
You create a work of art under the given theme; this one being the Ampersand.
Mail it off, and then receive another artists creative work in return. It’s like pen pals for artists at the random. Pretty neat I think

Processed with VSCOcam with se1 preset

And today it has arrived! My ampersand project kit from the Art House Co-op. I can’t wait to get started on this little gem of a gessobord™.

If you haven’t signed up yet, you should! It’s going to be fantastically fun! Get yourselves over to the sign up page, found below;

The Mobile Photo Awards 2012

It’s that time of year again, and once again I have entered… of course; The Mobile Photo Awards 2012!

About the Mobile Photo Awards 2012

The Mobile Photo Awards were founded to promote and harness the global phenomenon of mobile, or cell-phone, photography and art.  The awards are committed to presenting the art-form in galleries and exhibits.

The short-term goal of the Mobile Photo Awards is to celebrate the medium of mobile photography, the artists, the developers who create the applications and, of course, the beauty of the images. We believe that in order to bring the pictures into the public eye the medium must move beyond online photo sharing. While we are huge proponents of the online photo community we also feel that sometimes the images must be tactile, printed and framed, viewed on walls in a public space, and treated with the public respect accorded other art-forms. In order to achieve this goal, we have founded the Mobile Photo Awards in the hopes that the very best artists and images will be discovered in this manner.

The long-term goal of the Mobile Photo Awards is to continue hosting the annual awards, promote and produce gallery shows, and help raise the level public respect for our medium. We also aim to help educate and inform the art world that these images are remarkable and the tool used to create them is ultimately not as important as the images themselves.

The prizes are nothing short of phenomenal!

Here is an awesome opportunity that I of course could not pass up, The Mobile Photography Awards;

About the Mobile Photo Awards

The Mobile Photo Awards were founded to promote and harness the global phenomenon of mobile, or cell-phone, photography and art.  The awards are committed to presenting the art-form in galleries and exhibits.

The MPAs are modeled after the International Photography Awards with multiple categories, notable judges and the goal of bringing exposure to the artists and the medium. We feel the IPA is the gold-standard of photography competitions and therefore we follow their lead in many ways.
