The Banksy exhibition was….okay. Was hoping for more pieces and a longer walkthrough time, but hey I can now say I’ve seen some Banksy originals!

Finally got my butt into gear!

You might remember a while back I made a couple of posts about an ad that I was working on for a mate to advertise his vocal lessons. He signed off on the image below as the final product:

School Ad5

Pretty happy with the way it turned out.  I made all of these with GIMP instead of Pixlr, and fell in love with the program in the process.

This version – which was the first one I did – is still my favourite, but since it contained pictures of old dudes drinking whiskey, we thought it might not be appropriate since it is for a school magazine…

Still throwing around some ideas with my mate Cameron as we try and settle on some artwork for his ad. Here is the latest. Same pic as yesterday but with the old timey dudes cut out and a different background. Still got some more ideas to throw in the ring!

If you’ve ever ventured on to my Artwork page, you’ll see that I have a bit of thing for digital collage. I’m not very good at it, and am still learning, but I think I’m getting there little by little. Yesterday morning I was thinking that it has been ages since I did any so was planning on spending some time working on a new pic. Then, as if the planets aligned somehow, my mate Cameron text me and asked I could help him with an ad for his business. He has some space in an upcoming school publication, and was hoping I could make something up for him. I chucked a few ideas around and this is the end result:

I’ve just sent it off to him – it’s the first pass so I’m sure that now we have an idea out in the wild we can begin to work from here and come up with something rad.

On a side note, I ended up teaching myself how to use Gimp in order to get this pic done – and I LOVE it. I used to use Pixlr, but they have changed their online program and now it is a bit of a mongrel to use. I had been getting more and more frustrated with it the last few times I used it, and this latest change was enough to make me finally download and install Gimp and have a fiddle with it.
