They say it's important stretch yourself, 
to try something new. Well I guess this is a little 
different for me.

Reach for the Sky.


Self explanatory really I guess, although It could 
have a double meaning. While I was drawing it 
I had in my head old cowboy and gangster movies 
but it could suggest reaching for the higher things 
in life.

Earlier in the year I had the privilege of working on this set of two programmes
telling the story of the golden age of the British jet industry.

Above are the two transmission cards I designed. I also produced  animated
titles which along with the Programmes can be viewed on youtube here, 
about one minute and half in.

Today's Offering is something from my Sketchbook not sure if it's 
finished or what it will become, does however have a name. 
Whilst creating a new folder to put scans from my sketchbook in
my random dyslexic super powers kick in and spelled it sketchboob.

You can not argue with super powers.

Water under the bridge


Well It's been nearly a year since my last post 
and there has been a lot water under the bridge since.

So what's been going on?.

Well i'll tell you, or try to, after my reclamation exhibition I became 
ill this went on for few months nothing life threatening but i did 
feel crap and had no energy let alone for social media, which was real same 
beacuse I would have loved to follow up on the very positive feedback 
from the exhibition.

By january I was back to normal well my version of normal, 
still a bit disillusioned with the social media thing guess 
I have to fined the right balance between doing the work and writing about it,
being dyslexic not a great help.

I am currently freelancing as a Graphic Designer at 
BBC Birmingham, have had some great projects to work on and I am
filling sketch books like they are going out of fashion.

My aim over the next few weeks is to post some of the last years work,
new ideas and sketches.
Cheers Carl.
