Business card idea

Okay, I think I have possibly had a random stroke of near-enough-geeeenius!

Business card, prepare to be BORN.


Actually it looked better in my head at the time, but whatever... here's an example:

Black and white figure/image on red BG.. does that not stand out?? Look cool? No... I'm not sure. Still playing with the idea anyway.

Here's another one, same sort of theme:

I kinda like this one actually.

Life drawing

Today I went to Dr Sketchy in Islington which is a sort of Burlesque life drawing thing.. it's pretty weird! But fun. I think I need more practice at quick-fire drawing. Hmmm...

Anyway, here's a pencil drawing I did in my sketchbook this evening after I got back home (ref from a figure-drawing book):

I scanned it in and messed about with it in photoshop for a couple of minutes before uploading here though.
And that is all for now.

David Hockney

Just now I watched a program about an artist called David Hockney. He's pretty famous in the art world. Me being generally ignorant about pretty much everything, however, means I knew next to nothing about him until now.
I think he and his work is pretty damn cool so I thought I'd just share a bit here. Also, he's been doing loads of landscapes in the Yorkshire countryside throughout the different seasons of the year, which interested me particularly at the moment because I'm trying to do a couple of landscapes from photos that I've taken (or just from memory... maybe a bit of both).

I've recently started trying to learn how to use Maya to create things in 3D... it's pretty tough for my 2D brain. BUT, I have managed to make a small temple thing so far which is good. Had a little snag along the way, but got over it eventually.

At the moment I'm following a tutorial to make a 3D motocross helmet (I think that's what it is anyway), so I'll see how that goes!
