It’s another Friday update!
Terry Pratchett’s Discworld; one of the very few novel series i’ve read from start to finish. Love ’em. There’s a dedicated Wikipedia for many things, and these books have one.
The picture they had for a Clacks (a Semaphore tower) is, in a word, awful. So I thought i’d wade in and bring a nicer one to the table.
I made two.
I started drawing this “technical” one first. Realising that the thin lines and angle would make it unclear at a low resolution, I soldiered on none-the-less, and decided to draw a second, smaller, rougher one to make up for it.
I actually prefer this smaller one. It must be the shading.
This is finished: An idea that’s been rattling round my brain for years, all wrapped up with an Illustrator CS3 bow!
In upcoming news, when my printer decides to print more than off-red stripes, or when a reasonably priced print shop is found, a long-running project (one that’s a slight departure from the usual) will be completed…
Princess Leia Organa joins the Star Wars Typography lineup (after Admiral Ackbar and Darth Vader), not once but twice! The first one is a regular bust…
…while the second one is the “Hologram Edition”, with a blue tint and added hood.
Both bear the discreet inscription “Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope”. Click on the images to see them larger at DeviantArt!
Voila! The second “Star Wars Typography” work has arrived!
There could be a whole series of these, if the kinks can be worked out. Ackbarpography is doing well, being available to buy from SplitReason and all. There’s this one. Princess Leia is upcoming… sadly, she’s looking mostly dead right now!
A.K.A. “Streets of Lunch”.
Here’s my latest entry into the SplitReason voting pool… can you guess the video game reference?
Streets of Rage, the old Mega Drive beat-em-up videogame. All the items pictured are either health pickups or weapons available in the game – The tagline for this image is “all I need is a fork”.
