Blimey, it’s been over a month since I last wrote a blog post – my excuse? Well I’ve been drawing crabs of course! No that’s a lie, this is the only crab I’ve drawn recently ;) What I’ve mainly been doing is working too hard..
Taking up most of my time is a website I’m designing for Philips, with my new pals at Tribal DDB Amsterdam. I suppose it’s more of a web app than a site, it’s certainly proving to be one of the most complicated beasts I’ve ever worked on. But it’s a good brief and it’s big budget, so unless we totally fuck up, it should pretty amazing :) I don’t think they’ll be too happy if I spilt the beans, so you’ll have to wait until the end of the year to find out what the hell it is.
Also a bit of an ongoing project this year (which I’m back on this week), is a load of illustartions and icons for Skype. Their normal (consumer) stuff was done by the talented French Illustrator Genevieve Gauckler, but they wanted a bit less crazy hands action for the new re-vamped business section. They are rolling stuff out bit by bit, we haven’t quite finished it yet, but it’s coming along.
And finally, the last thing I’m frantically trying to get done in the evenings this week is a series of T-Shirts for my friends at Social Suicide. My T-Shirts are for next summer’s collection, so again you’ll have to wait a bit to get your hands on them. But they’ve just opened a store on Ganton street for this summers collection, as always with them there’s a twist – “The hotter the day, the less you pay” – the temperature in London, in Celsius, at the moment, is the discount you get in percent, at checkout (both in store and online). Well we are supposed to be having a heatwave this summer, so there should be some bargains to be had :)
