Summer Project

I have finally started my summer project. We have to make a small black and white booklet about a journey we took over summer, so i am doing mine on the trip to the farne islands i took when i went to the north. The Arctic Terns were angry creatures and attacked us, so i decided that all animals on the island hated us and as they live in the north i thought i would try give all the animals north accents and make them shout northern insults heh. This is 2 pages of my booklet 'meeting the seals' (not sure about composition but meh). More to come soon

Don't you just adore commemorative tea cups? Me too. I particularly enjoy the photocopied faces and the badly printed colours. Oozes style and class, I feel, and makes me really appreciate the royals and their momentous occasions.

Don't you agree?

We Passed Over

"Scans of the swarming, amorphous beings abdominal cavity proved inconclusive. The silently crowding creatures on the snow-covered surface were entirely soulless but possessed a great concentration of energy.

We passed over while evading detection from the fleets in orbit, and they did not stir."

Nevada Departure

Our first two* designs submitted to Threadless have been accepted for scoring! Support the collective by having a gander, or scoring our submissions if you have a Threadless account. Awesome, that.

View and Score Nevada Departure

*Note from Frost: Bearbattle's voting finished early because it was apparently too shitty. Haha. You can still score the Nevada Departure shirt, which is clearly better.

Holy Creature

10 minute dodgy-arse speedpaint. Don't know why.

This picture is a heart which has a hybrid of flesh and the female body mixed with a flower with petals opening on the left. The figure sleeping in it is supposed to be a child growing inside of it waiting to be born. This picture is meant to represent life being grown using the female form as the creator and the petals showing how precious it is. i use the flesh to show that it is more than skin deep and to make the heart more obvious but with out giving it away from first glance.

A Hypnagogic Hallucination

"Hypnagogic Hallucination - Gygici Feeder"
Adobe Photoshop CS3
1 hour speedpaint

"From the 5th Dimensional ecosystem, the Gygici Feeders are seen hoovering up the excess energy from the Gogyc Supportus ( running through all Real objects, as by the Creators will) and their flora.

This feeder was observed feeding off of Gogyc Kelp, from the Supportus of a pile of clothes. See figure.1 - "E piele of cloeths witter Gogyc Supportus""

-Extract from "E Gide of Korporiility und'er Subgogyc", unknown author.

I saw Eternity the other night

I saw Eternity the other night,
Like a great ring of pure and endless light,
All calm, as it was bright;
And round beneath it, Time in hours, days, years,
Driven by the spheres
Like a vast shadow moved; in which the world
And all her train were hurled.

- Henry Vaughan

Old drawings i've edited with things i've scanned in then layered on Photoshop to make some mixed media images.

I drew this from a magazine image but changed it slightly (colours etc.) I gave it a bit of an eighties makeover I think.
