Winner of our design a t-shirt competition is dr-beakman.tumblr.com/
Design I did for the UK band Ded Rabbit, go check them out!
Nothing much has happened.
My project partner is busy with work and he is supposed to be making my designs look all pretty on the computer, so there’s a delay on that.
None-the-less, I will continue doing designs over the next week and a bit and then hopefully he can get some time to do computer versions, ready to show everyone, before the new year.
And then hopefully the actual printing stage will occur in January.
I have completed two designs already (would have more, but keep getting distracted) and should have more done this week. I’m just waiting for my partner to do up computer versions of my pencil drawings, so hopefully I can upload them for you this week.
I have decided to go with the theme of ‘game changers’, famous people who made significant contributions to their respective areas of expertise. So far I have done Albert Einstein and Salvador Dali, with Jimi Hendrix and Che Guevara to follow.
I would love to hear any suggestions that you may have for other people, as I would like at least 1 or 2 more. Please keep in mind that your suggestion should be a ‘game changer’ in a different area to those listed above and have a recognisable portrait of them, as I want people to be able to recognise the image I make. However, feel free to make any suggestions you want to :)
This is the expanded version of this song: http://youtu.be/cJbBRWdV3-0. This is probably the 20th recording after the original, as I just kept adding different things in and making many mistakes, until I was happy enough with this one. It’s still Open C tuning and still that Chinese scale, even though this doesn’t sound Chinese. I am going to keep working on it in the next few weeks until it becomes a proper song, so please comment on anything you like, hate or recommend, it would help out a lot :)
DON’T LET ME FORGET!!!
would you like to see more art, music or writing?
Because I can’t decide.
This is just a little drawing I did quickly the other day and by quickly, I actually mean it took me a couple of hours.
It’s a style that I’ve been doing for years, I came up with it myself, but I’m sure others have done it before. It’s nothing fancy but I think it can look really good in things.
I had the thought of doing the pattern in a spiral form, but concealing it much better than what I did. At first look, the spiral is shown as a single ‘track’, but if you look closer, that’s actually the gap between two ‘tracks’. Make sense?
Basically what I’m saying is, look closely at it. (Click the high res link)
I’ll do many drawings using this style, along with that checkered one I do aswell, in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Well that’s it, my guitar is FINALLY finished and operational once again!
On closer inspection there are several things wrong with it, but I kinda like it that way. This was my first go at painting a guitar and I wanted it to look that way. I’ve tried to be a perfectionist all my life and with this I just said “f*** it!” and I’m happy with the result!
The guitar is a ‘cheap rip-off brand’ of a Fender Strat, meaning it doesn’t sound great to begin with, so I thought what is the point in doing a perfect painting on it?
I like it.
Alright, my guitar is done. Or is it?
I think it’s done, but do you think it needs more?
P.S. My phone camera is really bad, but it was all I had :(
