[Alvy addresses a pair of strangers on the street]

Alvy Singer: Here, you look like a very happy couple, um, are you?
Female street stranger: Yeah.
Alvy Singer: Yeah? So, so, how do you account for it?
Female street stranger: Uh, I'm very shallow and empty and I have no ideas and nothing interesting to say.
Male street stranger: And I'm exactly the same way.
Alvy Singer: I see. Wow. That's very interesting. So you've managed to work out something?

Some tunes.


Some illustration drafts for a scarf for the borders exploration group. I don't normally work in this style, So it's been a bit of fun trying it out, but also bit frustrating, probably taken longer to get to a final solution than normal. Should really have worked out an image which i could have created a bit more easily, anyway got a little bit more to do to this obv but here it is so far..

this made me laugh

Crystal Disco - Yard Sale

I've been asked to design a poster for Concrete's Indie/electro pop night - crystal disco, which is themed upon a yard sale this time (!?) (which is actually pretty tough to think up any good concepts for. Don't even know whats going on on the night.)

Anyway it must include a Stag and a duck (technically a rubber duck.. but ill see if this is alright)

Right here's a sort of rough idea of what the poster is gonna look like, the colours are a bit dull here. Gonna have to scan it, not got enough light for photos. Some stuff is stuck down.. the crystal and the duck and deer... but none of the typography or sign... or grass... what are your thoughts please? composition/typography/style (although im pretty much sticking with this style now).

Im not liking the yard sale up at the top.. looks like the they crystal yard.. so what else?

Might try pep the colours up a bit when i get a better scan too.

I've been really itching to get off my computer and do something analogue hence the collage. I also feel like analogue work will make me a better person,(Which is my new year's resolution, (i made it up a couple of weeks ago.))

Anyway yeah gimme some help ya?
