Fish Nor Fowl for Treatment Studio.
Tuesday, 13 November 2012
October was mostly spent away from the studio this year so here's a little photo compilation of my escapades. The first week saw a trip to a peaceful Treyarnon Bay beach house in Cornwall for a spot of cycling, walking and amateur hour surfing to wash away the cobwebs. For the second week my wife and I jetted off to the ridiculously picturesque Amalfi Coast region in Italy. The dramatic cliff-hugging town of Positano was our first port of call and the weather was good enough for dips in the sea and a ferry trip to lovely Capri Island for a lemon slushyfest. We finished our trip in the more cosmopolitan Sorrento with it's spectacular views over Naples bay and Vesuvius, a breathtaking area despite the hellish Naples traffic that can only be described as mentalistic. For the third weekend we brought it down to earth in style at the excellent Supersonic Festival in Birmingham's Custard Factory where I saw some great music I'd not been introduced to before. Highlights for me were Devilman (pictured), JK Flesh, Bohren & Der Club Of Gore, Gnod, Ufomammut and Zoltan (pictured).

Step Back by Sam Krats featuring Nabo Rawk on Killamari Records. The illustration is a bit of a Bristol/Boston mashup reflecting the backgrounds of Krats and Rawk respectively. The video was edited together from a couple of raw performance recordings of Nabo outside Dunkin' Donuts and designed to accompany the look and feel of the illustration. You can watch it here.

The Tingler poster was selected to exhibit in this year's AOI Images 36 show at Somerset House and will continue on the exhibition tour around the UK. It also appears in the accompanying Images 36 Best Of British Illustration 2012 book in the Self Promotion category along with my Urban Utopia (New Scientist) and Creative Outsider (Design Week) illustrations both in the Editorial category. The Tingler pops up again in this year's 3x3 Proshow, selected for the Poster category.

I'm back at the wheel after some downtime with a backload of work to plonk on the blog. Firstly, here's a job for the folks at Bensimon Byrne to promote Canada's 100th Grey Cup Festival 2012 in Toronto. It's a big cultural sporting event based around American football happening in November. I had to produce a panoramic illustration that could work across various media and as five different banner compositions to hang around Toronto. Touchdown...as they say.
