Ten images for Ithaca "Dream"




Not far off a month since my last post... very much time to fire up the blog before it atrophies! I've been busy on something which I'm just not allowed to talk about... the plot thickens. I could tell you but then I'd have to kill you.

Something I've squeezed in which I can blog about is a submission for the Ten images for Ithaca competition. The Greek island of Ithaca has an annual themed poster design competition. The 10 best submissions get printed into 2 metre high banners and displayed on the Ithaca's promenade for the summer. Plus the three winners get a cash prize. This years theme is "dream". It's a really open ended brief, well worth a try... though the closing date is May 31st so get a move on! Hope you like my efforts. Who doesn't want to swim like a fish or fly like a bird...? (Thanks for the tip on the competition Kev, looking forward to seeing your poster...)

Louis B still hasn't made it across the channel yet, I must get on and give him a hand!

yyyeeeeoowwww!! oh my goodness, matt, i SO love this...the triad color versions but especially their composition and the texture/tissuelayers styling, with that really old-school character look. ack, i'm such a fan....and such a geeky one at that. and wow...you are working on something where you might have to KILL? secret-agent-illustrator-animation-man. (say THAT 10 times fast!)

Wow- I really love this image! The great subtle colors and the overlay of textures and shapes- just all very very nice. I really enjoy the repetition of the man and woman's bodies as their mythological counterparts above and below- very nice concept/piece!!
