Thanks for the feedback guys. The one thing that I've had trouble with with this one has been the type. For some reason it looks a little too...80s metal for the show info. I really dig the artist type though, but I didn't make that. Here's the first experiment with color. All water color, then cleaned up a little in photoshop.

Considering doing some Art Nouveau-type line-border stuff in the outside blue border.

I like how the tree's leaves are painted, as well as the blue sky behind.
The part in the sign where it says 'Collective' looks a bit weird, but overall it's amazing. inlove.gif
Great job.

Well if your looking for some typography, I suggest looking at old Art Noiveau style writing, posters and stuff like that and your can work from that to make your own unique type. Colours are looking real good. Love the watercolour sky!

The trunk scribbles looked good in b&w, but with the color, it seems a bit much. Also agree with "collective," it really sticks out. Don't take these small crits to heart though, it's a great piece and the color really makes it pop. Nice work icon14.gif

Oh, I don't. Surviving undergrad Architecture school has made me build a thick skin. The best critiques are when people actually have things to say about the work, and not just "it looks good". I'm reworking the type, including completely redoing the outside type with the show info, and am liking it better already.

I can see what you mean about the tree. I could mess with toning down the linework in photoshop, and rely more on tones to add texture.

Clicky for larger.

I've already adjusted the black of the vines to match the slightly lighter everything else.

Lookin' good Moon! inlove.gif

The 'Collective' text looks a bit better, there seem to be a couple of white spots but it looks good as they are IMO.

Excellent work icon14.gif

Good eye! I was looking at Mucha and Arik Roper for references. The venue that the show's at has a great art nouveau scheme to it, and a very excellent bamboo amphitheater thing as an outside stage.

OH NO, I've never tried spray paint or airbrush. I feel like my style is too sketchy to really have any good control for a spray can.

Youd be surprised man, your talent is obvious. Theres a young kid from my way, great artist, decided to start graffing after seeing of my stuff about (in fact he getting a lot of recognition, was in a graffiti magazine interview and named me as his inspiration, nice of him.)

but yeah he took to it straight away, id have to post some of his stuff to show you just how good. Only 17 years old as well. Hes a mainly legal painter which is not proper graffiti to me, but not gonna knock him for it.


I reckon youd pick the medium up straight away man, if you have that much talent with a pen etc a spray can would be almost impossible for you to not be brilliant at..great thing about a painting is that due to the paint you can easily correct any error.

Not saying you should bother tho man as youve obviously got your own lane, but the thought of say..walking under a motorway bridge and all of a sudden youve got one of your pieces of work just there..out of nowhere (such as that snowy lanscape with the character earlier)...would blow peoples minds.

but yeah f*ck it man, just explaining where i was going with that prior comment. Good luck with the work and all that.

Holy sh*t, that's damn sweet!
As always...

I'm particularly liking the waves and black lines that represent the darkness of the night. Thunder looks weird, kind of like an eight. Unless it's meant to be like that..

Again, excellent job icon14.gif

I think it's an ampersand.





It looks great, I dig the shading.

The blue at the top is sort of uneven, it's more saturated to the right of center, and a bit more washed out on the left, but you may have already noticed that.

Either way, you never seem to disappoint. icon14.gif

But I think it could also look good with no frame, though. icon14.gif

Sweet. I'm actually getting into setting up a screen printing operation, so I won't have to go through anybody else to get shirts, posters, prints of my sh*t made.

Here's a thing from a few weeks ago. A little explanation: my friend and I came up with an idea that both solved the dilema of her wanting to drink and enjoy the music festival, and still write reviews for the bands. I accompanied her like a photographer, except doing onsite sketches, then going back and refining them later. If you're interested, read the sh*t out of the review. It was great fun, and got a lot of incredible feedback. http://www.eachnotes...usic-fest-2011/

Started a shirt design for the Cincinnati Roller Girls. The black's going to be negative space, as the shirt's going to be black, but I can only use three colors. Red White and Blue work?

So is this basically going to be a white rectangle on a black shirt? Kinda feel like your cool border is going to waste if that's the case. Have you thought about making the border white, and switching the rest to black/negative space?

I have. I still like the idea of the black negative space border/linework. I have options now though.

I'm still messing with some of the border and background stuff, but that's the basic idea.
