A buddy of mine asked me to help out with a logo. He’s busy spinning decks down in sunny Bournemouth. He was after something that was a play on his name, not too formal and something with a bit of a ‘shout-out’ vibe to it. Below is the finished version and a little bit of the process, showing concepts and iterations.
I recently finished an illustration for a wedding card. I hadn't done any watercolour painting in a long time and it's something I wanted to try again. So this was a good opportunity. After a couple of sketches, the client picked their favourite and I set to getting the image finished.
So, it’s finished. I said I wanted to do at least 15 players. Well, I beat that by one! I would like to do the whole squad, past and current players. There's loads of other players I'd like to draw...O'Gara, Jackson, Hayes, Willie John McBride. It's a long list. Time does not allow, I’m afraid. And you know what they say about time...I have other projects to begin working on. [The last image is a gallery. Give it a click and go through all the mugshots.]
Okay-already, I will be doing some more! Just in time for the Six Nations and a little thing called The World Cup!!!. I love it! I think I’ll have at least each captain from the teams. I’ll also be doing a few sketches of the ladies teams (Can’t be forgetting about the girls now!). Come back for more!
I was approached recently to create an identity for a musician for his YouTube channel. He wanted a Japanese influence in the logo. We went through a couple of rounds of changes and this was the version he wanted to go with. It was a nice smooth project to work on. I'll post a link to his tunes as soon as I get it.
I've been investing in myself for the last few weeks by creating materials for my logo and website. All the materials have arrived. Letterheads, stickers, envelope labels, business cards and postcards. Here's some shots. Click any of the images to bring up it's full size.
