These aren’t terribly new, 2007 I believe, but I’ve been reading my way through Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes books after one of these wonderful covers caught my eye. The books themselves are brilliant, far better than I expected – I think we’re brainwashed with expectations of the deerstalker hat and “elementary my dear Watson” which is never said, and the hat which is never worn.
The books make a beautiful set and I’ve been treating myself to a new couple every few months when I get a chance, and the designs perfectly lend themselves to the real spirit of the books and the characters, not the parodied cliché of Holmes.
The full set continues after the click.
Another little project between myself and Rihards. It’s a very simple, small & helpful tool, handy for showing someone an image within your browser (for me it’s handy to show people some of my WIPs to get a second opinion) without fussing with FTP, or worrying about deleting it later. Good for when messenger is being rubbish at transferring files.
Take a peek.
As a note, Rihards is still ironing out a few bugs, so any problems just fire us an email. We hope you enjoy it and find it as useful as we have :)
A few wallpapers in various flavours for your pie needs :D
The third in the series of books on lovely business cards by Michael Dorrian and Liz Farrelly, which I stumbled across in Magma on Friday – I’d forgotten it was coming out this summer!
It’s a lovely resource for all kinds of inspiration and styles. And I’m very proud to have my cards be part of the collection (must be scraping the barrel and all that – before Coxy could say it). But yes, very lovely and happy they’ve been so well received :)
Shameless promotion alert – I made these posters to promote my friend Seth’s new book group which focusses on lovely fantasy & sci-fi book nerdery. So if you’re in Mancunia, come along – the next book is Jurassic Park! A timeless classic. Well maybe not, but it’s remained one of my favourites for years.
There I said it. It contains dinosaurs. Massive spoiler. Ruined for you really.
So yes, come along have pints, discuss geeky books, and ramble about other things. We tend to go have grub after too, so it’s not just bookery.
Plus. Dinosaurs, I mean, come on.
The next meeting is Wednesday 29th April.
Our Dark Materials
My copy of Bastardised arrived some time ago – it’s a sturdy bloody thing! Has all the submissions to Bunch’s Made in Bunch project including my own wee contribution. Unfortunately I didn’t get to go to the get together they organised as it landed smack on my birthday (plus it was in London).
Or lake if you’re so inclined.
Something I’ve been working on every now and again for quite a while, has finally been printed up and posted out to the wide world to act as a little hello :)
I also posted a preview on DT and had a few requests for prints folks can buy, so if anyone does want a copy comment away and I’ll eventually get around to sorting a print run :)
The two posters above I created for DT‘s monthly poster competitions – I won their first competition with my robot poster a while back. The beardy poster won also whilst the yellow river poster came a joint second :)
Bit slow of me posting this in 2008, but wanted to show them :)
I won the competition for my design to be used as the school Christmas card at my infant school when I was seven (back in 1988 scary eh) and had them reprinted this year as my Christmas cards to send out :)
Thanks to Karen over at Entwistle for the insanely fast turn around (left it a bit late!).
Hi all, another delay in posting! I moved early in December and only just got internet back.
With the move I’ve missed the second competition but hopefully will find time to enter the next :)
Have a bits of news and shinies over the coming few weeks so check back soon!
After far too much chasing I finally have my cards back from the printers. – And breathe out.
