Mystic Ketchup

Today, a little how-to/advertisement directed towards those who, until now, were unable to harness the power of acceleration in order to acquire their remaining driblets of  ketchup. Mountains of half-full ketchup bottles are discarded daily because patrons are unaware of just how much power is in a simple shake. Just shake the bottle. Shake it down sharply and you get more ketchup. You can do it!

Evening Fireskull

Evening Fireskull
I think it is fair to say that I enjoy organic lines. I played up a mock cd cover in Photoshop and decided to do all the line work in there instead of drawing and then scanning in. The tricky part was figuring out an appropriate brush size for details.

Thick Stacks of Thumbnails.

Just a quick peek at a logo I am working on. Thumbnails and thumbnails of a Penny-farthing.

Then over to Illustrator:

Now a potential business card side:

Final product. The other 5 pictures on the wall are the original images in this booklet.

And also, my artist statement if anyone is interesting in having a read:

Mockery of Self-Confidence

In this series, I have brought together my personal guidelines for success, relevant in the business of art and in the larger scheme of life. The first phase of triumph over the adversarial blank canvas begins with a construction of guidelines, backed by and teeming with hours of Balance+Calculation that will stand as a flexible framework for images further down the line. Ultimately, this is more of a conceptual time.

Branding+Identity. With great ideas come great responsibilities. One of those responsibilities, according to most major brands, is investing in a visible, recognizable persona. The logo created is not just a façade, it is a way of life.  ARClark® results in a final product guaranteed to live up to rigorous standards that can only enhance with time and experience.

Failure is unavoidable, necessary and essential. The upside to failure is that the traces of mistakes are meticulously siphoned off from the end product by way of learning and molding oversights and half-slow or half-fast efforts into something successful.

Execution is the only outcome that is really observed in the end, and only for a moment. It is a small victory when some project goes according to plan. In this case, my final series has come together in five images and a booklet that explores only a fraction of the diversity of nature. And even with this small victory, it is only a matter of time before the cycle repeats.

Start THIS

Starting my senior project. It is essentially of my own choosing so that could have been a disaster, but I am taking a natural science approach. Monsters are fun, but I have to represent the real inspirations for characters once in a while. In the end, I will have five spreads of weird animals. The first one, as you can tell from my three lines, is a Mimic Octopus. More to come by tonight.

Mimic Octopus
Progress! Only 4 more to go.

Hook, Line and Sinker


Get it? Because I think of my target audience as vulnerable prey. The only problem is I have no target audience because I have no hook. No niche. My goal  through these next two to three years of school is to have some sort of style or gimmick to offer the unsuspecting public. Yes. YES! Commence the tenting of the fingers!
