office shoes staff competition

Talk about taking your work home with you! I've worked part time at Office for two years now and when Head Office posted a competition in the bulletin to design new staff tags for the store, I knew I had to take part. Our tags are quite small at 7cm by 9.5cm, so I had to think about working with that size. The bulletin also stated to keep intact the colours of the classic Office chevron that you see on our bags and boxes.

This is a shoe lady who didn't quite make it to the cut, but I kinda like her.

EDIT: I got a runner up prize and a free pair of shoes. :3


Last weekend (1/2/3rd of August) Mancstercon was held in the Manchester Digital Labs, a wee independant convention of comic book makers. I contributed a little comic to their anthology which was along the theme of monsters!

Keep an eyeout for any upcoming events from the Mancstercon team, they were a friendly bunch!

illustration friday: jungle

only god forgives

Little White Lies posted a new creative brief, this time to design an alternative poster for Nicolas Winding Refn's Only God Forgives. Nothing will beat the orignal poster so I thought I would have a go at creating something highly contrasting to all the black and neon? It was fun to do anyway.

I'm seeing the actual film either tomorrow or Saturday. It's getting mixed reviews but I don't care, I've been so excited for it!
