Random photo; found on blog from a fan, here I noticed the years of layering and the rough tearing of the poster give it a nice urban, raw feel, but the aesthetics come from the half ripped text that tells us the top poster was about art, and it could be interpreted as a heart of the piece.

BIG Magazine; like the free, natural repetition (as a whole) represented by the letters, with the main icon in the middle, highlighted in a strong red. Relating it to the statement it would be nice to keep the repetition from the first piece; change the icon of the repetitions, and have an icon that is used as a focal point. Further ideas could generate a sequence of posters that seems to zoom out showing a boundary for the images to be contained in.

hitchcock-small_pop

Poster for Casting a Shadow – Creating the Alfred Hitchcock Film, about the director and his collaborators.

Poster reminded me of one of my pieces I had done years ago with bird sillottes in a crescendo formation. Also reminds me to ‘put away’ finished work or else they just get thrown away…=.=;

People are overrated, posters underrated…

Non-Format, The Chap-Builder’s Brew.

Just love this piece just for its personal meaning. Found a hedgehog on the road, so I moved it but I didn’t realise I was only prolonging its death…I had placed it on the island…that was inbetween 3 roads =.=;

nike

Found that the meaning of the psychic eye was lost; the strong symbol for Nike took it completely out of context. The next step is to see if the eye can be developed as a stronger element; take away Nike sign, or manipulate it though it can turn out really bad. Play on the Nike campaign slogan ‘Just do it’ ie: ‘Don’t do it’ the opposite; play on humour of suicide…madness, confusion, indirect interpretation the psychics always give.

Thought about venturing into something with type (eventhough its not part of a sequential style), just thought I’d try. Straightjacket is lost.  It won’t be easy to read from far distances.

Added colour to draw attention, brought her back to life.

psychic_03

Thought about the signifier of psychics and found the eternal/all seeing eye as the main symbol people recogise. Confusing to look at from near but clearer from far.
