The light came through the window and illuminated the usual clutter, but somehow made it look beautiful.

Found some stuff Zadok and i did earlier this year that never saw the light of day. It was fun to work with one of the finest drawing machines i have ever met perhaps there will be more to come later this year….who knows? You can check out his stuff at Plastic Bones . Those of you who were paying attention to last Saturdays episode of Sherlock Holmes you may of noticed that he was responsible for allot of the graffiti in that episode. Anyhow here’s a couple of stencils I cut from the Z’s sketch’s.
So to return to the previous blog entry of Ill communication. Here’s the final image of a recent commission for Japan, the guy buying it saw a similarity to the work of a Japanese woodcut master Kitagawa Utamaro. High praise indeed. So with a series of misunderstood emails later, 3 canvases and a few days the finished image is completed.
Wandering around brick lane on my way to atlantis, spotted these. Don’t know who did em but loved the technique if not the subject matter. Aren’t these folk famous enough? Is it weird cutting stuff from other peoples pictures or is it just me? Who knows perhaps Nick Knight is getting up. Nice style though. Ian from Wallkandy reckoned they were some sort of viral ad campaign, figures.
Its funny making things for people, especially when descriptions come in another language. Here’s one that won’t see the light of day…will post the desired interpretation of the image as soon as its made. Its been a weird day, finding a common tongue between Japanese, and German and English, caught in a odd feedback loop, hopefully solved now. See here
