I’m pretty stoked on that Coco Solid illustration. Tittays! That’s a first for my work I think… I don’t recall drawing boobs on anything else. Exciting stuff.
In other news, I found out I made the finalists for AS Colours ‘Little Help Project’ T-shirt Label contest. Grand prize winners are announced in a week or so. Fingers crossed. Check the link for more info about the whole dealio.
I’ve never entered any sort of design contests before, so it was awesome to be a finalist the first time I throw my hat in the ring. I’m thinking of submitting a portfolio for the Young Guns awards too.. although they’re kind of expensive to register with… but looking at past winners, couldn’t hurt to try…

This poster took a long time to come to life. For whatever reason I struggled with it for a while. I came up with a concept I was happy with and I wrestled with it for a while, but it was time consuming. Then, joy of joys!! My computer had some issues and I lost a whole partition. The one that had all the files for that particular poster. Along with a bunch of other in progress projects. YAY! Anyway, it’s been about 8 years since I’ve had anything like that happen, so I freaked out for 5 minutes then shrugged my shoulders and let it go. Such is life.
Anyway, here’s the completed poster. It was done in one 10 hour or so sitting and I’m really pleased with it. There’s no major conceptual gimmick to this one, I was just shooting for something moody and spacey, which is what I get from listening to the band. Also, lose the show info and you’d have yourself a pretty sweet band t-shirt. Maybe I should run it by Bradford and co.
