I went to help my mum take some things to the skip and found this record. The cover is a testament to how talented illustrators were 'back in the day', whenever that was. Scientists aren't quite sure. The music is also 'epic' in the original and truest sense of the word. 

I think we can all learn a lesson from this. Help mum's out (sometimes).

After leafing through my next-door neighbour's old records, I found this gem. Not only is the cover really nice, but the tunes aren't bad either.

Monkey See, Monkey Doodle

Continuing with my monkey picture, I tried out a new way of using my printer. After working out some rough colour values in photoshop, I painted seperate CMYK layers in ink. I then corrected the colours on the computer and ran it through the printer four times in total. After a couple of attempts I then used my dad's laserjet instead.

The colours came out a lot more vibrant and detailed. The last picture is the result.

Colour Film

A couple of scans from my last colour film, they were a lot better in the prints themselves, but my film scanner kills them a little bit.

Visual Diary

A selection of entries from my visual dairy. I've actually quite like the last picture, which is a revelation compared to the rest of my summer work.

I'm going to try and use my inkjet printer in a more organic way later on using the last image. Hopefully another update on that soon.
