Second batch of “Crystal” styled text. I really enjoyed thinking about light refraction in this design and how characters would light up with a back-light and crystal like formation highlighted by the streamer. The feedback was enough to really consider how light might behave when falling on an an obsolescent material.
I have been exploring the work of this illustrator/animation director recently and really taking a liking to his bold, colourful, surreal style. This is just one of his many illustrations. What I really like is the way he exaggerates certain aspects of the human form and also the way each of his paintings is almost a microcosm of narrative. Above is a prime example of this, entitled Abrah Ka Dabrah. Again I urge you to check out the rest of his work at www.stevescott.au if you like this kind of style also check out Laboca design house and Will Sweeney who all share the technique of using stark, bold lines and colours to depict slightly mind-bending subject matters. Also check out the latest music video for Birdy Nam Nam produced by Scott and Sweeney! It really is quite mental, but a brilliant rendition none the less, encorporating many different forms of animation from 3D to hand drawn. I really love the concept aswell!
