T-Shirt designs for Da-Londra. Really loving the new Illustrator CS6, finding the interface extremely intuitive and logical. Although having used the previous version of CS4 I guess it has not changed that much. The colours I have used here are not the official T-Shirt colours, which I am guessing will be something like fruit of the loom colours, but it definitely showed up some of the possible printing dangers that might occur i.e. clipping and spilling! Hopefully the bike in this instance should be simple and bold enough to avoid these problems, but if not I will definitely have to reconsider my approach to this one!

Comic strip stylee deck designs I was asked to produce by Faltown Skateboards. I used ‘The Rasterbator’ (an online image processor that can create huge dot matrix images) to fill in the dark patches of a photograph taken from the Hubble Space Telescope (hope the copyright is not too tight). This hopefully helps to fuse together the bold vector graphics with the background.
I also like this effect because it massively simplifies and vectorises the background, contrary to the infinite nature of the subject (space) giving an interesting juxtaposition. This technique was mainly inspired by comic book print patterns and also the video, Parachute ending, directed by Will Sweeney and Steve Scott. Check it!
