Here's the artwork for a new theatre production by Hungry Wolf for The Theatre Workshop. The Electra Project is the youth theatre group's piece for the Brighton Fringe and later in the year will also be at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The Electra Project is a piece of theatre that alludes to a 2012 nationally publicised and controversial GCSE performance, which resulted in the sacking of two drama teachers. Drawing off this nationally publicised event and the moral conundrum it provokes, The Electra Project is based on a group of A level students devising a Greek tragedy that goes horribly wrong. The Piece, a comedy, will explore themes such as the importance of drama in schools, the boundaries that are in place and questioning whether we are still allowed to make mistakes in education. Written and Directed by Dave Jackson, NYT, ITV and Radio 4.

We didn't want to give too much away so I chose an image from a crucial point in the performance that will hopefully draw you into the story. As ever here are some close ups...
On Monday it's Silver Surfers Day, no not the intergalactic comic book superhero. Apparently it's to celebrate the elder and more venerable generation's fast-growing uptake of web services. I don't know who made it up or if it's even real, but Plusnet and LBi asked me to design and illustrate their infographic-come-paper-doll to celebrate it.
Originally he was going to come with a range of different stylish moustaches, clothing and accessories, but they decided to concentrate on the specific items for the copy, but you never know, I may upload an updated version here with everything on it ... if I get some spare time.
Some more work I did a while back for Dark Star labelled special edition bottled ales.
We wanted to highlight the playful nature of the company along side their artisan brewing. Big hops providing a textural backdrop for some fun lettering.
This was some work I did a while back for Dark Star, They wanted some Dark Star special edition bottle labels for a new release.
We wanted to highlight the playful nature of the company along side their artisan brewing. This one was concentrating the handmade aspect of the ale of course not forgetting the hops!
Back before christmas Dark Star Brewing Co asked me to help them with their 2012 tasting notes. The brief was slim, but they didn't want to influence it too much, other than a suggestion of 70s prog rock album art.
After a lot of research and concept sketching, I came up with a heavily stylised illustrated front cover with hops of course being the over riding theme, and then went all 'alternative reality' on the inside with floating hop islands, a la Avatar, rivers of beer and a tear in the fabric of time/space.
Glad to see the finished product looks great and has been finished really nicely. Check them out in a good pub near you or at the Dark Star Brewery shop. Also keep your eyes peeled for a limited edition print run in the future, I'll obviously let you know about it here first.
