The wonderful world of Sleeveface. Why have I not found this before?!
One or more persons obscuring or augmenting any part of their body or bodies with record sleeve(s) causing an illusion. Pure simple genius.
There's even Sean Connery Sleevefacing himself. Check it out at http://www.sleeveface.com/

Illustration Friday - old-fashioned

False Teeth // photoshop, mixed media
John told me how his grandma had false teeth which were so brittle, she sat with them on her knee. Once they fell off and their dog ran off with them, hid under the welsh dresser and chewed them to bits!

Entry into the Sovio wine label design competition in association with FAD. A variation on the GotWine labels I did a while back, these sadly didn't make the final 10 but there was some stiff opposition. Check out the finalists at Sovio Top 10

The Wisdom of Old Age

A page from my new design portfolio!
The booklet is made up of a series of different postcards, each designed around a humorous true story from an elderly person. The styles for each postcard are inspired by handwritten letters, drawings and photos people would have send to one another before the invention of email and computers. The final outcome was to inspire people to send more personalised, meaningful messages to one another.
