Self Defined

One of my favourite quotes from the book -

And my first illustration for it...

I like the text i the hair, although I think all the lines going the same way throughout the image is dull so I might try something else...

Self Defined

Here's some more edits to the 3 images.

I aim to work on some fresh images for some of the other quotes tonight

Self Defined

More edits and components.

The apparatus, the sole-less evil baby, and poisoned organs in the bed pan for the on-lookers to see plus some text.

Self Defined

Working into the apparatus...

I think doing the second one but better might be nice...

Or maybe better and on top of number one...

Also, some Photoshop stuff ready to work into next combining a dolly and a brain. I will upload the worked into ones when I have worked into them!

I did some paintings today to put into this show. I can't put all of them in, so a suggestion of which four or five would be good, though the frog and slender loris need a fair amount more work than the others...


They still need a few touch ups, here are some rough photos of them drying and the space I took over for the day to do them!

An orgy of women

I was going to put these inside a perfume bottle, I'm not sure now though.

Self Defined Again

Some more development, looking at ways of showing the women perfume. The main character in the book kills 25 women for his perfume, so there are 25 women in each of these images. I have also been sketching women wrapped around one another, however these are not finished so I will upload them tomorrow.

I like the bottom one best, however it's fairly abstract

Self Defined

'Perfume' describes the search for gaining the perfect smell, the smell of virgins. The ink was looking at ways of showing the hair, and the next image is a virgin in a bottle. The last was trying to do hair, it works better without the bottle.

Self Defined

We have a 9 week self defined project.

I am entering the Penguin Design Award 2010 as my brief.

Here's the first bits of work from reading the book 'Perfume'.
