Making Magic

People’s Arts Festival

Wow, so it’s been exactly 1 month since my last post… and my PAF collages (for this weekends art fair) have come a long way. Let’s take a quick walk through the process and how it’s been working out in the last month.

Well, we all know about the first step of making the collage, right? No? …shhhh. Shut the fuck up then, no one asked you. Here’s where we start with the stickers. It all begins with an index card containing a sketch of a schoolgirl holding a pair of sais.

Sai

Noted. The following process (partially documented here) involves converting the index card into a 1:1 copy for a better resolution on the sticker. In this case, the size was about 15×26 give or take. Once it’s been scaled to size, and drawn out better it is then transferred to the sticker material. In this case we’re using a simple method of a scanner and printer. The separate sheets from the printer then have to be trimmed down so to fit together as one.

Once this process is completed, the sticker is then trimmed down in order to maximize the amount of visible background. After all, the process of making the background collage is just as interesting, and we don’t want it to be lost.  The sticker is then applied. Easier said than done with a sticker of this size. It will sometimes still have imperfections as problems arise during this step. However, these small issues will ultimately give the piece it’s individuality.

RIC Spring Open House 2010

Well, I was up all night working up this flyer, and it just went to print today. We should get them in by Friday, so expect to see a posting of the printed version sometime next week… then rejoice when I finally post it a month from now. I started up a flickr account to use for my blog (since the upload button no longer works in the ancient version of wordpress) …anyway, you can check that out here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fukur/ …but enough about me. Here’s the flyer…

Early Alternate Versions

…it’s not about the process.

…that’s all for now. I’ve been working on remedy667.com… right now it’s just a flickr photostream, but trust me… it’s coming way sooner than the Coats & Corpses website. Just in case you are hungry for something new, check out the Dance N Graff site… that’ll be in progress for a bit, but it’s live.

The Bird Czar…

Today the Russell Bazaar website got a much needed make-over… and oh yes, there is more to come. Here’s a sneak preview for people too lazy check out the website itself… I call it…

…this is a modified version of course. Right click them both if you want, I have the vector files.

Get Ready to March!

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

March (being the busy month to do just that) is promising to be quite the month for gallery shows… for people living in Arizona. First off, there’s a mini show (always fun)… a sticker show (always, …sticky?), and finally a poster show rounding out the end of the month. Now, me, being an illustrator claiming to be an artist (or is it the other way around) have decided to act in the supporting cast of all 3. I’ve been at it for a few weeks now, but haven’t divulged too much information into the blog…

I’m devoting this first post to the poster show, since that’s what I’m working on right this minute. I’ll talk about the other shows in retrospect, later… The rules are simple, 2 posters… 11X17 or larger… from 2 different local bands…

So…

I did some drawing the other day, for the poster show…

I really want to use that nurse on the left, but it may prove to be impossible because I can’t think of any local bands that I would like to use it with right now. Lucky for you, it may become a Click’N’Print… I did, however, have a preconcieved idea for the Hadituptohere’s poster. It’s based on some illustrator art I had seen the other day that made drastic overuse of the Halftone, and this tutorial I stumbled upon a few months ago…

Then, I figured “Hey, Nick had asked me to do a DROP flyer for him a couple years ago, why not make a poster from that unfinished sketch?” Remember me…

Which brings us to where we are now… It’s cool though, even though these are looking incomplete as hell (In ore ways than one) I still have until the end of the month.

He’s Hiding in the Cheese…!?!
