Street dance t-shirt

It’s a fave of mine this, featuring the fantabulous Mr T Dance Stevens. This one goes back a bit as I created it quite a while ago, still pleased with it though and it’s worthy of a post…

It’s one that was inspired by festivals, music, dance and the magic combo with night and light.

The man in the moon

I thought it might be interesting to put up an example of a sketch that was later turned into a vector image.  This sketch was simplified from an earlier idea so that it just left me with ‘the man in the moon’ that we all know of from childhood stories.

The final image, although a simple image, is a vector image.  What is a vector image? A vector image is made up of points that are plotted mathematically. The image can be enlarged to any size as it is a set of instructions rather than a set of pixels.  Pixel images – what you get from your camera for example – are images made up of a series of dots.  Ok there are alot of dots but you can only take that image to a certain size before the dots start to have gaps between the dots and the image starts to look fuzzy.  Vector images take longer to make, alot longer, as many are drawn by hand into the computer but they are much more versatile.  Logos are often created this way as  it does’t matter what you use it for, it will be clear and sharp.  If you ever needed your logo on the side of a lorry for example, the pixel image just wouldn’t work!
I create and make logos and vector images on a commision basis but also have a small selection for sale online through royalty free websites. This image, and others can be found at http://us.fotolia.com/id/23964236

Sid so far…

Sid so far, still a way to go. Working in my own ‘wrong’ way of using watercolour. Rather than using watercolour in the traditional ‘white of the paper showing through’ I tend to work in greater layers and use the ‘put paint on take paint off’ way of working. I have always thought this wrong but I really like the effects that can be achieved and Sid still has a way to go before I am happy.


It’s all gone a bit Seagull…

I couldn’t help it. I was on honeymoon an there were so many Seagulls. I just love them. I know many pople view them as pests but heck they are great. So, I took a lot of photos and a few of them are painting potential and out came the water colours. I could have been typing tonight bit I was painting instead and the resulting Seagull, affectionately known as Sid, will appear soon. Till then…
