So, I have the internet and tonight is the night that I got to sit down and get my Peter Saville on, not likening my work to his on any scale but merely the fact it’s late. VERY late…
If you’ve been keeping up, you may have noted I have had no internet, hense rendering my rather hardworking computer rather obsolete so I have taken to drawing a little more… in an effort to make my work a little more individual. The quality of this was lost as I had no scanner so had to photograph and edit in illustrator, hopefully, with a good chance I’ll be able to get it scanned in cause i’m real proud of it!
The idea originated from firstly, the book I had just finished, mentioned previously, written by shute and called On The Beach, it deals with the end of the world and peoples ability to deal with, relish and end their last days on earth. Secondly, on their first EP the guys and girl in Johnny Foreigner have an ace tune called, you guessed it, Suicide Pact, Yeah?
I’ve got a few little drawings that have now become more about the book than anything and they will probably surface once i get my scanner sorted!
oh yeah, and go to the show. they’re good. if they get their gin!
so firstly, i don’t have the internet at home yet due to Virgin being absolute money grabbing liars and signing me into a contract before telling me EXACTLY when we could’ve got it installed, Please, don’t ask me TWO preferred install dates and THEN give me adate, not only 8 days after, but on a weekday, now, what with me selecting two saturday installation days as my preference, do you think that I am free or have an inclination to be arounfd on a tuesday morning, NO! I have a job, that is also a little bit of a mute point when I mention that after booking my installation on the 7/8th of January, they turned around to tell me that I can’t have it installed until the 16th February. Brilliant, whilst that IS my sister’s Birthday, the combination of her living about 250 miles away, the fact she has broadband already and that it’s a pretty shit present (me getting broadband) means that it is of no consolation you absolutely backward, typically british company. Branson. I’m coming for you and your fibre optic broadband…
christ. I also mentioned that I now have a job. A turn up for the books i’d say… That kinda means, coupled with the fact I dont have the internet, that I can’t really show you much of my artwork… well, maybe one I did for a show in clwb with Johnny Foreigner which is hand drawn as i’m going to attempt to push myself in new ways this year…
Coming soon, Caesar’s Rome’s artwork for their album. Hopefully, if Jon and the boys will let me, I’ll be able to give a sneaky peak of atleast some of it on here, my blog.
Secondly, I’ve done a lot of work with BARELY REGAL records… super sound mates o’ mine who are about to start doing VERY good things back in Cardiff. lookout for more work from me, on them.
Happy New Years!
Better late than never…
It’s hard doing work for bands you don’t know much about and once you try to find out something about them you like them even less than you did when you knew nothing about them… Keep trying eh? I kinda like the book-ish look of this though… the details in the bottom knock this a little off for me but nevermind!
