Merry Christmas!

A late late Merry Christmas for you guys!

I want to correct something from the last post - The show I was going to see in London wasn't "Live at the Apollo", but a pure Jimmy Carr tour show that was AT the place called Apollo and where the very TV show is recorded.

With that out of the way, I want to tell you that the London trip was great, except that barely two centimetres of snow apparently makes the whole transport system in Great Britain collapse. Which made my plane delayed by 12 hours. Fun!

Anyway, one evening, while my two mates were out drinking, I sat on the hotel room and sketched, and this ugly, almost grotesque self portrait, came up.

Jimmy Carr in London

Me and my mate are going to London to be in the audience of the show "Live at the Apollo". If you're not familiar with it; it's a stand up show with three/four different comedians each time to perform. Brilliant show!
And this weekend, my favourite comedian happens to be there. Jimmy Carr. What a genius.
Here's the first part of a two part clip of Jimmy Carr the last time he appeared on "Live at the Apollo"

Graphic Design

Assignment - Make five different designs using 10 different photographs and/or textures. Here's my five designs:

Dirk Kuyt - using a photograph from the internet and a picture taken of my Liverpool jersey (which is the C and the A of 'Carlsberg' to the far right). The design really reminds me of Coca-Cola, probably because the red colour to the C and A in 'Carlsberg' is very similar to the label on the Cola bottles.

Liam Gallagher, Oasis - Using an old drawing I made of Gallagher some years ago, added some texture (a red brick wall) and the word 'Victory' split up. The combination of the word and Liam Gallagher/Oasis shouldn't add up, it was a coincidence.

Markus (MarQs) - Using a photo of Markus, adding a little filter and some letters.

Self portrait - Using a small part of my self portrait in coal with the cover of The Stone Roses' self titled debut album and a texture I had from before of.

Martin Skrtel - Using an old drawing, adding up a texture of a wheel track in the snow and mixing it up with some effects and letters.

Off topic: Futurama

Hi there!

I've got just about nothing new to post (or actually, I do, as we're doing some graphic design at school nowadays, but I'll post a little later)... anyway, we'll leave the brackets there - I just watched the Futurama Holiday special episode, in which I discovered that almost every of the main characters in that TV show is left handed!

If you already didn't know, I'm left handed and proud of it. And according to some internet sites, Matt Groening is left handed too.
In addition, I've noticed Bart, Marge and Moe from The Simpsons being left handed as well. This is probably useless facts for you, but for me... cool!
