I'm on Reelizer!


Reelizer is a fantastic gallery of alternative movie posters. I submitted my Shaun of the Dead papercut to it not really thinking it'd have a chance of making the cut, but they put it up!
There's some amazing posters on there by some really talented people so delighted that they stuck mine up too.
woop!

Linotype





Went to an open day in the National Print Museum in Beggars Bush last weekend where they demonstrated various old printing presses & printing techniques.
I got them to do the letters of Tinderbox on the Linotype hot metal press, which was really interesting to watch all the intricate workings of it and amazingly fast as it takes a cast of a row of individual letters and injects molten metal into it to form the line of type, all in about 20 seconds!
Here's some photos of it that I took for a new banner for the Tinderbox blog. I was using a very tight macro lense to get a shallow depth of field as the letters are only about 4mm high.

Tinderbox banner


New banner for the Tinderbox blog using my new bag of tricks! I wanted it to have an off-register screenprint look.

The Frolicking Smudge


I was messing about trying out textured brushes in Photoshop, some of the chalk & pastel ones are pretty realistic looking.
