logo and process thumbs for a coffee company for class:




Icarus- Hulk- The Marvel World of Icarus
This is a song from this crazy psychedelic Marvel Comics album.

Description from Amazon:

One of the rarest major label albums to emerge from the British Progressive Rock underground, The Marvel World Of Icarus was a concept work based around the Marvel Comics stable of superheroes. It came out in 1972, but, according to legend, was immediately withdrawn due to a dispute between record label Pye and Marvel Comics. Taken from the original master tapes, this first-ever official reissue - which includes comprehensive liner notes, band quotes and previously unpublished photos - tells the fascinating story behind the album as well as documenting the wider adventures of Icarus during their 1968-72 existence.
I dare you to download and listen. Let me know if you are interested in the album.

So enough people are viewing this blog now that i have blown through my free account bandwith on Photobucket. All my crap is broken, and I am thinking that I might just switch over to Flickr and upgrade that account. Testing out hotlinking from Flickr.

Was checking out Eric Graham's website and was inspired to do a "study". Grabbed the first interesting picture i saw. This is sort of new territory for me, even though i should be doing this sort of thing more.

Anyway, pen and paper then ruined in Photoshop.

Go buy Eric's prints at 20x200.

Built in Illustrator and ruined in Photoshop.

On a serious note there has been a mini-explosion of stuff on BoingBoing recently about Afrikaans hiphop. It is totally weird and hard to explain but at the same time it is very awesome. Go check out some of the awesome videos at the links below:

Afrikaans rap-rave: Die Antwoord, "Zef Side [Beat Boy]"
Die Antwoord, S. African zef-rap, and Progeria survivor Leon Botha

This is my favorite song of the bunch so far (dude's hat is so good):

Working on a class assignment.

Traced a commons image from Library of Congress flickr and then applied a pic of mountains over top for texture. Still working on it.

Sorry about the blurrycam shots. Taken with my iPhone in a hurry. But I had to document this...

So I was at a local used book store when I came across this gem. Unfortunately I didn't have spare cash to spend 25 bucks on it, so i snapped a few pictures. It is, as you can see, illustrated by Blake Hampton who doesn't have much information about him out on the internet... but he has an interesting paper cutout style he utilizes in this project.

Favorite pic could be the hot-bird action shot, or maybe the sleeping puppy. Click on the pic above to see the flickr set...
