Some more collage-ey things with type and maps and old images.

Playing around with found old type specimens and some other digital stuff, made into a collage of sorts. The type looks alms like it’s on old tissue paper, I love the transparency.

Playing around with a random quote I heard on WTF podcast about Jimi Hendrix, I drew this out on paper, scanned it, drew in Illustrator, and added some textures in Pshop.

Another creative project from The Jealous Curator. The project was to document, in any way you want, the contents of your medicine cabinet. I started to draw the items, hated that. Photographed them in horrible light, I was going to trace them in either Illustrator or ArtRage, but lost interest in that too. Finally, I mucked around w/ them in Pshop, layered them and added color and type. There are three 11×17 designs, all crammed here. The lower part shows some more detail. I have a moderate amount of happiness with these designs. There was some desperation and some happy accidents, and that’s where the magic happens.

This one, like the previous one, references that dub step song I heard. I used the Art Rage app on a Surface Pro for the painting, then composited some found old paper and LetterMpress set type in pshop. Inspiration for this image from here.

An illustration exercise, maybe not all that good. It was random stuff i drew in my sketchbook, then re-drawn in Illustrator and color / texture added in Photoshop. Most all the painting texturing was done on the Surface Pro I have. It still felt lacking, so I added the words on top, these were leftover letters from other LetterMpress projects.

I’ve always wanted to do the Illustration Friday thing, but never have either started one, or if I did, I dallied around and didn’t get far. I finished one, but two days late. As in most things in life, late gets no credit, but I wanted to do it for practice. I started with a quick sketch, scanned it, worked it in Illustrator, then imported into Photoshop where I added textures from a great brush set. That didn’t look so good, so I laid in some found photo textures. Happiness achieved.

Created for fun, this starts with old magazine scan, painted over in Art Rage, then lots of collage work in Photoshop. Lettering created in LetterMPress. Words from e-horse books, or whatever it was called.

These things make me happy to create: the tar on the street photos, combined with random words, some Gaskell’s quotes and scans and a few other antique images. I love the way the tar looks like brush script. I love the haunted look of the people in the mug shots. I’ve got a few more in mind to do, the files are huge, so maybe I stop after this one.
