Finished mocking up what its pretty much going to look like.
I’m going to make a full-on technical line drawing in illustrator next. Then colour it flat colours with maybe a couple of gradients. Maybe I’ll do it CMYK. Part of an evolving master plan. Eventually I’ll get to the point where I can transfer the lot to an A1 canvas and start actually painting. Some time.
I ♥ the Nelson Street Art project. Proper lovely vibes down there this afternoon. So much effort gone into transforming a drab 80’s concrete jungle into a full on garden party, Brizzle style. Blown away by the astroturf and big blocks of live plants adding to the mix. Big-ups to Bristol City Council (who’d ever thought I’d hear myself saying that!) for having the chops to spend a not insubstantial amount of public cash (word on the street is upwards of 80k) on something so downright cool.
This is still probably my favourite independant film I’ve produced to date. It was created in 2 weeks flat from artwork that took me 5 years to make! I’m a big lover of video mashup culture and this is my homage to the likes of Hexstatic, Coldcut and all those cut-up artists out there keeping the freak flag flying…
The soundtrack is a white label bootleg called ‘In and Outta Space’ – No clue who its by but its a breaks mix of Prodigy’s ‘Outta Space‘ that samples the legendary reggae cut ‘Chase the Devil‘ by Max Romeo. Incidentally its from a 70 minute party breaks mashup mix called the ‘Mouk Town Mashup‘ I created under my DJ/Producer pseudonym ‘DJ Cropmaster Flex’
