Saturday September 2nd. The Man Burns Tomorrow @BRC. For that.
Concept art for a work in progress: When I take on a new assignment I often begin by generating concept art in a variety of different styles until I settle on a style that fits. Although this particular style will not be used in the final product i expect I shall find a use for it in time. Nothing I create goes to waste.
"Virus" circa 2002 : Inspired by a paragraph I read in an old Time Life book (The Cell) explaining the basic attack mechanism of a virus. The quote below is not the original text that inspired the animation but the essence of it is close enough:
"Viruses that attack bacteria were named 'bacteriophages'. The term phage originates from Greek phagein, which translates as 'to eat'. The phage infection cycle seems to be simple but extremely efficient: a single phage injects its genome into a bacterial cell, switching the cells' programme in its favour so the host cell will eventually die and release about 100 new phage particles.1 "
an old internet game i played:
1 - go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random . The title of the page is the name of your band.
2 - go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random again. In the second sentence find the name of your album.
3 - go to: https://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ third row down, third photo over is your album cover.
The above was my result.
A while back I made a series of illustrations that were preliminary sketches for a series of modern children's blocks. The originals were black and white woodcuts (10x10 pine boards) but have since been scanned and colored.
