Drapers Magazine - Keeping pace with customers
Here’s the inside double page spread of the work I produced for Drapers Magazine recently. Another one relating to the blurring boundaries between online and in-store shopping.
Travelbird - Illustrations for pitch
A couple of months back I was asked by Strange Beast to produce some illustrations for a potential project for Travelbird. The script for the animation was pretty nuts which I rather liked for a commercial ad, and they got the job!
Unfortunately I had other work on at the time so I didn’t get chance to work on the full project, but if you’d like to see the final ad without my illustrations in it, you can take a look here
Lots of new work uploaded to my website today for you to check out including more LP covers for the Mock ‘N’ Roll project and this magazine cover I produced for SHOP Magazine earlier this year, hope you enjoy!
Cristo Marinez - Scarlet Fever
Here’s the first promo image from my Mock ‘N’ Roll collaboration with Lord Whitney
We now have ourselves a fine tumblr which hosts these fictional stars alongside lots of behind the scenes photography. Click the link below to check it out.
Please feel free to go and follow us over there, thanks guys!
Mock ‘N’ Roll - Behind the Scenes
However now we need your help more than ever. Mock ‘N’ Roll is a self funded exhibition, we’ve produced 20 new pieces of work and now we need to make the show as spectacular as originally planned. You can donate here to our Indiegogo page and get lots of interesting prints/goodies thrown your way. If we raise enough funds we can hopefully take this show on the road and exhibit the work in London!
DONATE, SPREAD THE WORD, MOCK ‘N’ ROLL!
Mock ‘N’ Roll
Illustrator Jack Hudson has once again teamed up with 3D image-making duo Lord Whitney, this time to produce a body of work inspired by the most vibrant, iconic, and downright weird record covers in history.
Jack and Lord Whitney have created an entire back catalogue of LP cover designs for a series of fictitious musical artists. This exhibition will launch you into a sonic time warp where only the best bits from an era rich in music and visuals are permitted. Doves will cry. Hair will spontaneously perm.
This feast for the senses will be equally delicious to eyes and ears, with established musical artists penning original songs inspired by these outré artworks.
Expect the private view to bring a touch of Club Tropicana to Leeds, complete with colour, music, and exotic fruit-based beverages. Just remember to remove your rose tinted aviators, and you may be able to spot some of the ‘real’ superstars themselves…
Blurb Written by Ben Welch
JH, LW and The Slicks
Here’s a 'A step into the Third Dimension' team shot, big thanks to our models Joe and Isaac who I think did a cracking job whilst also looking slicker than ever!
I must say it was an interesting moment when these two fellows walked into the studio after costume and make-up, definitely a surreal experience that I won’t forget!
Finally it’s here and it contains lots of unseen projects that I’ve worked on over the last year as well as some older classics that I’m still very happy with! And if that’s not enough to make you lift that nimble finger and click on the links above/below, It even contains a BRAND NEW collaboration with the 3D/set designer duo Lord Whitney that I’m very excited to show y’all!
Do it, GO! GO! GO! CLICK! CLICK! CLICK AWAY!
Theory To Practice: An Educational Journal
Here’s the front cover image for the Journal, which takes the concept a little bit further; zooming out from the final spread in my previous post and putting the futuristic, well travelled male figurine into the hands of a fresh young child who is just a few steps away from beginning his own journey through education.
Theory To Practice: An Educational Journal
This set of illustrations feature across four double page spreads in Lehigh Universities 2012 Theory to Practice Journal. Rather than going for a straight forward editorial approach to the layout, I wanted readers to get lost within the story as it flows throughout the spreads. Conceptually, the illustration looks at life as being like a conveyor belt ; full of obstacles and challenges that we have to overcome in order to be successful As the pages turn, the character grows older and technology advances.
I’d just like to say a big thanks to art director Kurt Hansen, whom I worked closely with throughout the process and this helped me to achieve something that I’m really proud of!
Arbor Day - Mental_Floss Magazine
Julius Sterling Morton is the man behind Arbor day, which is a holiday in April where many people worldwide plant trees in celebration of Mortons brainchild and most importantly nature itself!
This is the man himself presented with a mossy moustache and surrounded by lots of friendly tree planters who are sticking around to keep Arbor day alive.
Rolling Stone Italia
Last year I worked on a few illustrations for the review section of Rolling Stone Italia. It’s a little different from my usual work but I wanted to try my hand at a portrait for a change of none other than Bob Dylan, for his latest album Tempest.
I wanted to give the illustration an 80’s seaside feel to counteract all of the winter rain we were experiencing towards the end of last year!
2 0 1 2 into 2 0 1 3
I thought I should squeeze in one last blog post before 2013 is upon us and mention that 2012 is going to be a hard one to beat! Not just work wise but also having new experiences such as living in Salamanca, Spain for 6 months and also travelling around New Zealand for 4 weeks, I’ve had an amazing time! Next year I’m moving to London and looking to get involved in some new projects and hopefully pursue some more 3D and moving image work.
I wish you tumblr gang all the best in the new year and keep watching this space for a new website and lot’s of new work after the jump!
These images are taken from some work I produced for Lehigh University (USA) in August 2012.
