Mini exhibition at The Book Club, Thu 1 July 2010

For one night only, some of my drawings will be on display at trendy design meetup night, Motive, at The Book Club, 100 Leonard St, London. There should be plenty of other interesting things happening that night, so come along!

You may need to sign up here to attend, or if you can't be bothered, pester me and I'll add you as a guest.

The birth of a logo

I recently found these printouts from a few years ago, of ideas for a logo for e-TASC (an online educational tool). I like the way the ideas at the beginning are fairly random and independent of one another, but become more finely honed as they evolve to the final design.

Even though I say it myself!

(I've added this photo and a few others showing some of the printed materials I've designed over the past few years to this page on my main site)

There's no business.. no business.

A recent business card design turned down as being "too much of a cliché" by my own flesh and blood. I ask you.

Just as well I only spent about half an hour on it.

I was inspired after seeing Jeffrey Lewis in conversation last night (at the Old Queens Head in Islington) to try combining drawing from life with whatever else pops into my head, which is what appeared to fill many of his sketchbooks.

Is this drawing I've just finished a commentary on the state of affairs that large corporations / banks leave the rest of us in? Is it my subconscious acting out following the letter I received today from the Royal Academy letting me know that, despite one of my pictures being shortlisted, I've not made it into the Summer Exhibition? Or are the fingers actually doing the 'peace sign'?

I just don't know.

But I don't think it's that last one.
