Advice to Sink in Slowly Poster

Monday, 12 September 2011

Ever since I was a fresher at Falmouth I wanted to draw a poster for Advice to Sink in Slowly, they were an amazing inspiration for me when I was just starting out & the thought of being able to pass that feeling on was so exciting! I'm so chuffed to be a part of it.

Also chuffed to get the opportunity to draw a scary Mayan-god-slash-designer-face eating money & clocks. I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on it, the detail got out of control at some point & I couldn't bring myself to reign it in, but I think I'm starting to like doing slightly more detailed work! Scary. I nearly went with a scheme in just greens but also couldn't bring myself to use non-red. I don't know how my idea of colour ended up categorised into either 'red' or 'everything not red', it's too extreme to even be called a bias now I think.

I might've taken the advice in my poster to extreme at times (I didn't kill anyone), but sometimes it really is worth sacrificing for your work, whether you're at uni or not. Prioritise! & remember your passion. Oh, I'm welling up. I love you guys.
