I'm intending to produce a series of these drawings that will possible work together, and do maybe a panoramic version. I'm intrigued by some of the organic shapes that you find in engines and engineering, chubby pipes and frilly filters and the bulging hulks of manifolds. Everything generally has a practical purpose but there can be some beautiful compositions that form in the process.

printed on the gocco printer, this is a postcard design to get your juices flowing. I can't wait for summer. The colours are fluro which doesn't come across on the scan, but believe me, they are bright!
with plenty of ink and allowing for a margin of error, you can pump out about 50 good ones and a few duds. You can probably get more out of it with different designs and more experience but this design is an exclusive limited run of 50!

I am currently spending some time interning with the lovely people at the motion graphics studio 'mainframe'. This was the prize I received for the glug 'all i want for xmas' competion. One of the tasks that has occupied me this week has been ident designs for a sticker sheet.
this particular design features a writhing tangle of cables that spell out the logo. It was sort of inspired by what becomes of tetsuo in akira (I won't spoil it if you are yet to experience it!) There's a whole bunch on flickr here

my first experiment with print gocco, which is a sort of homegrown Japanese screenprinting kit. This is intended for the rear of some art prints that I'm doing for promo purposes. You can't tell from the scan but its a really nice pearl finish from the oil based ink that has quite a unique quality. Will be posting more results as they appear.
