All Teeth Shirt Designs: #3 AKA. Back Muscles

 Draw it. 
Scan It.


Edit it.


Colour it.


Simplify it.
Type it. 

This ones not finished. And the colours on the final image have gone weird.
This will include the lyric:
"Turn me inside out and find no trace of you.
Every day for you will end the same."

All Teeth Shirt Designs: #2 AKA. Thirsty Fangs

Not too much to say about this one really.
It's some drippy ink type.
Oh, how I love drippy ink type.

All Teeth Shirt Designs: #1 AKA. Gloom Kids

So after responding to a message from hardcore punk band All Teeth 
They asked me to do some shirt designs for them. 
Here we go then.

Hand Drawn Kinetic Type #3: The Great Repetition - Start

Touche Amore Video #3: The Great Repetition went into production today.
Here's a hint at something new I'm doing with this one.


There have been some fairly exciting developments in relation to this project, although I'm gonna keep that under my hat for now in case it doesn't work out. Chow.

Hand Drawn Kinetic Type #2: Touche Amore's Pathfinder - Work In Progress

So after the delight I had after finding out that actually, not only was making hand drawn kinetic type ( with a dodgy camera I ordered on eBay from Honk Kong) really fun, it looked pretty cool and other people actually like it. Ergo: make more. I've decided that I'm going to work my way through the album and see if I can do the whole thing. The first one was scratchy and unplanned. Change that. Think about this more. The second track 'Pathfinder' is about half done now and looking sweet. Not going to post it yet but here's some light typography. 


Mmmm. Light Stencils.


Frankly, these were some happy accidents that occurred when I was moving all the stuff off my table. But they look sweet, so I'm going to immediately upload the 2nd one to my website.

Hand Drawn Kinetic Type Time Lapse of: Touche Amore- Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me

 I bought a little camcorder about a week or so ago. 
This is the first thing I've got round to doing with it.
Hand drawn kinetic type of one of my favourite bands - Touche Amore
. It was just something fun to play around with. 
To be honest I thought It wouldn't work at all but in the end it turned out alright.



Check out Touche Amore.

Los Muertos Y Sin Dios V.s. The Lost Soul


Getting down with The Dead And Godless. I love this typeface. I want to use it for everything. Logistically, stylistically and aesthetically that's either impossible or a really bad idea. But it'd be fun to try.


Lost soul.
Simple.
Take an older piece of work.
Vectorise it.
Introduce a black background.
 Add a set of tiny upside down crucifixes.
Put your web address at the bottom.
Send it to the printers.
Coming soon to www.mercerdrawsthings.bigcartel.com

The Dead And Godless


Still busy being Mexican. 
More flash elements for repeated usage.

One Life, One Chance

Occasionally it's nice to draw things completely by hand again.
