MCS Sheldonian Orchestral & Choral Concert Poster 2010

Just finished off the poster for this year's Sheldonian orchestral concert for my old school back in Oxford. The programme contrasts itself with a mixture of pieces based around the likes of an archaic countryside, as well as astronomy and the planets, both of which inspired the artwork.

The poster is A2 with intention for A3 printouts as well, so text is a little hard to read on this significantly smaller version. Click to enlarge.

Had a lot of fun making this after doing the poster for the same event two years ago. I'd like to feel like I've improved since then...

Mystery White Boy

Just finished work on some single cover artwork for indie/electronica artist 'Mystery White Boy' aka'd as Falmouth's very own Robin Mitchell.

The project is a cool sort of collaboration, as he's using the artwork as a source of influence for the final product. I'll post links when the tracks are done and uploaded at his website. I haven't heard them yet either so looking forward to it!

John Mayer UK Tour: 15th - 19th Jan 2010

For the next few days I'm travelling parts of the UK to catch the John Mayer shows happening in Manchester/London/and Wolverhampton. I'm seeing some friends I haven't seen in a while so put together an A3 poster for them to mark the event, with the aim of making something quite wintery, that didn't have John Mayer's face on it.

If I get some good photos I'll no doubt post them up.

Photography Day - 'You're Cosy, I'm Cold'

Went out yesterday afternoon to take some photos of the snow. I found it interesting how deserted the countryside was in comparison to how it is in the Summer whilst the crops are being collected. Here are some highlights that try and convey this, cropped and graded so I can pretend I have a Hasselblad camera.

01: Door

02: Avenue

03: Silhouette
04: Dominoes

05: 'It Was The Best Of Times...'

06: Logs

07: Daylesford

08: Horses

09: Kingham Hill

10: Roadside

11: Phonebox

12: Spire

13: Dusk

Christmas Card '09 - Songs To Keep You Warm


Not usually one to make Christmas cards, I decided to try and make a card that wouldn't be thrown away come January and everyone's lack of shelf space. The card doubles up as a CD sleeve case for a music compilation titled 'Songs To Keep You Warm'. Sixteen were made. Track list was as follows:

01 - The Miles Davis Quintet - My Funny Valentine
02 - Jessie Baylin - Contradicting Words
03 - Hall & Oates - Las Vegas Turnaround
04 - Eels - Fresh Feeling
05 - Counting Crows - Chelsea
06 - The Incredible Moses Leroy - The Color Of Sky
07 - Fleetwood Mac - I Don't Want To Know
08 - Wallis Bird - Fat Chick
09 - Ella Fitzgerald - Bewitched, Bothered, And Bewildered
10 - Curtis Mayfield - So In Love

I would have love to have sent out a ton more, it was really hard to choose who to give them to. Apologies if you didn't get one. If you're interested in a digital copy of the mix, drop me an email I'd love to send you one.

Merry Christmas ^_^

Tinsel Tat - Embrace the Nafness of Christmas

In celebration of the official start of the Christmas season and the ever nearing end of term, I've been involved with organising the 'Tinsel Tat' Christmas Party in Falmouth. The theme encourages everyone to embrace the 'nafness of Christmas' including tinsel, baubles, and Christmas jumpers you'd rather not own or have to wear.

My contribution has been through creation of posters and tickets, and the general sending of emails.

The party's tomorrow night 8-12 at Mango Tangos in Falmouth. If you're in the area it would be great to see you there...

Anne's 50th: Mamma Mia/Grub/Barn Dance/Awesome

This was a small commission I did over the summer. I figured probably wait until after the event until posting all the details about it. Had a lot of fun with the Bodoni typeface trying to best replicate it to the Mamma Mia posters. Apologies for the black box over the rsvp information.
