Love Is Sweet - Digital

She's done.
Wanted to make it a little more subtle than 'Blind' so I didn't go in for all the crazy amount of detail in ruffles and highlights. Kept it simple, kept the shades closer together as well. 
Green eyes. Always green eyes. 
Ever seen 'Big Trouble in Little China'? No? You should.

Love Is Sweet - Work In Progress 2 - Nearly Done

Just a couple of things left to sort out. But pretty much finished with this one.
Until I find imperfections and spend ages more on it probably.

InCiders Shirt Designs Again

A few tweaks and such on the InCiders' designs after comments were passed back and forth. 

Exactly the same as before only white on black.

A different font was mentioned. Here I've gone for the same font that was used on the real Black Flag shirts and set it in the same position as the text was on them. 

Could have the logo on the back? One on the sleeve as well would be pretty sweet.

Logo added to the top of the writing. Now that I'm uploading it the logo looks a bit weedy compared to the chunkyness of the rest of the letters. It might just be the size/res. If not I can always set it so "InCiders" comes level with the rest of the type and "the" hangs off the left hand side.

The InCiders: T-shirt Designs

So some friends of mine collectively known as The InCiders, ( ) a local hardcore/punk band (See previous sets of concert photos) asked me to do some shirt designs for them. I was supposed to do the album cover but I did something else instead.

Black Flag. 
There's a lot of mock Black Flag shirts going around and it annoys me a little bit because they're all just using the logo with different typefaces and it's become really cool and stuff. You can bet half the kids wearing the shirts have no idea who Black Flag were. So in this case the logo's turned to coffins and straight outta the InCider's lyrics "You Stood Back And Watched It Die". The songs about the hardcore scene being taken over by scene kids. Just in the same way that the t-shirts were taken over by hipsters.

Nowhere near as much thought in the processing of this one but I think it looks pretty cool. Just took the Black Flag coffin pattern and extrapolated it, changed the position of the type at the bottom.

Welcome To The Age Of Stupid.
Another line straight out of The InCider's lyric book for the latest E.P. It's either the line before or after references the dawn of the dead which is where that hand came from. Birds are just for effect. Enjoying the jumbled up letters with just "stupid" standing on it's own. Let's see if that confuses anyone.

Dead Girls Don't Cry - Redo Again

The composition was still annoying me. I'll probably change it again in a couple of days.

Love Is Blind - Digital

Finished rework of a piece from last year. Colour is good.

Love Is Blind - Work In Progress

Another sneak peak at a work in progress. Regular readers may recognise this one, it's a piece I did almost a year ago that I always wanted to do something else with but wasn't quite sure what. And after 'Dead Girls Don't Cry' the idea pretty much slapped me in the face. 

Nowhere near finished. Just about done working on the skin.
