Hey readers. Here's the poster I finished today for Sammy J's comedy festival show (click it to enlarge).
Had a great deal of fun working on this and the shadow puppet stuff (which is still in progress). It was probably the most satisfying and gratifying job of my fledgling career. And I wasn't even very well-paid for it!
The next couple of months are looking to be fairly busy. Apart from finishing up the work for the Sammy J show, I'm starting work on some illustrations for a design firm up north. They're putting together an interactive website for a mining company (as far as I can tell - it's still early days and I don't have the full project details yet). The illustrations are going to be animated, which is pretty exciting.
The other job I got is through a local design firm putting together a picture book for Yarra Valley Water, who provide water and sewage systems to a large chunk of Melbourne. The book is to educate kids on the basics of the water cycle. It's going to be printed in large format (1 metre!) for classroom reading. I'm planning on learning Adobe Illustrator for this job, something that I've been putting off doing for months, but it's finally becoming a necessity, so I guess I'd better knuckle down!
So yeah, looks like 2008 is fast picking up speed!
