Up late...been experimenting with geomy.

If you want to call that experimenting.

 

Love the color combo and the glow/fuzz is easy on the eyes. I appreciate the offset diamonds in 'Connection,' but not crazy about the big triangle at the top, seems last minute/tacked on. What's notaho? reference to our late night experimenting?

Yeah, the triangle definitely needs work. I wanted to give the pattern a centerpiece or a keystone that holds it all together, but if you're getting the impression that it was thrown on last minute then yeah, i'll keep going on it.

 

And Notaho is a play on words, since the pattern reminded me of some Navajo patterns i've seen.

Alright, started a new project, I was f*cking around with more geometry per usual, this time skipped the triangles, went for hexagons. Since Tri and Set were the filenames i used for the last ones, Sex was due for the six sides.

 

First Draft

At this point I felt it looked sorta cool, trippy as sh*t, but it could go further.

 

Second Draft

Threw it into AE, did some tweaks, used some Magic Bullet effects and tweaked the colors.

 

Current Outcomes

This is where I'm at so far. Flattened everything out, duplicated, rotated, added grain and halftone to the top layer then lowered the opacity, then f*cked with the hues.

 

C&C, please. smile.gif

Yeah the purple one is freaking great, if I still bought shirts from Threadless I'd totally jump on that if I saw it on there.

Heres some of my latest work from the past three months, experimented with texture layers blended over black and white photographs to imitate a double exposure trick I recently saw on some blogs. hope you enjoy them!

 

 

Liquid Sunshine - Cover art for my friend Ohitis's single

Ohitis - Just a little f*ckaround that I made after Liquid Sunshine

The Sixhorn - Based on my three main astrological signs, Aries and Double Capricorn

user posted image

 

Buddha Eye - This was originally intended to be an edit of Spacegon, but I added some kaleido effects, and produced this

Finally, just finished this tonight. Took a photo I had taken of my grandpa a few years back and did reversed that screen mode effect I was talking about onto Multiply blend mode instead

Mister Pink

Zak, your work is amazing and I'm sure you're gonna have loads of people wanting you to design their album covers if you don't already. I love the sort of grainy textures on Ohitis and The Sixhorn that remind my of retro vinyl covers.

 

Well done! icon14.gif

Impressive!

And I agree with album covers idea,

one of those reminds me of Tame Impala's Innerspeaker

May I ask how you did the Ohitis one? that sort of closing in effect.

It's funny you mention innerspeaker, because it was completely inspired by that artwork. I just duplicated the text layer backward and increased each layer going back 10% more than the one in front. I'm pretty sure how Tame Impala's artist did it with a single image was take the center of the photo, marquee select, edge feather a bit, then duplicate it forward with each layer getting smaller and smaller. It appears then that it's going backward in space.

 

And thanks for the appreciation, guys!

My latest piece, "One Must"

It's an edit of "Notaho", i'm starting to explore combining my geometric/dreamy/space pieces with contrasting elements to try and give off more depth and room for imagination. Hope you enjoy it!

I feel pretty selfish just updating this all the time with the desire for people to see my work, but i guess that's just being an artist. Here's so more of my recent work, starting off with my first ever printed Album Cover!

This was the unused poster I did for their release event
