Just thought I’d give everyone some insight into my work process. As convenient as getting my shirts printed was, I would’ve had to sacrifice a fundamental part of the design to keep my costs down. And as an artist…convenience over craft doesn’t sit well with me. So I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands, literally. So to get a consistent design, I decided … Continue reading Stencils!
Today was a good day. I intended to have a casual meander through town looking for the best places to get my newest stock, possibly purchase a few pieces to get the hand-painted ball rolling, relax and then hit a photoshoot with a budding designer friend of mine. Instead of leaving home early like I had intended, I felt almost compelled to do a practice … Continue reading The missing piece
At some point last week, while I was perusing the vast grandness of the internet I had an epiphany of sorts. I really need to build an inspiration board to help me pinpoint what look I want to achieve. So far I’ve created a list of names of people I want to check out/look at in further detail. So far I have Erica Russell (the … Continue reading Inspiration: Iain Macarthur & Sergio Toppi
Ok, so it’s been a while since I last took a look at a t-shirt line and envied their stylistic prowess/approach/etc. Purely by chance I stumbled onto a site called reinventthepublic.com (or Re/Public [how clever is that?!] for short). I’m not sure how to pull images off their site at the moment so I’ll just talk a bit and then post a link at the … Continue reading Design & Me: Reinvent The Public
It has been WAY too long since I last updated here. I guess that’s the trouble with wanting to post long, whimsical and thought-provoking posts! Any way, I think I have a fair amount to get through so I’ll stop babbling on 😛 I…have been reading. I’m still in the idea development phase so I’m just rubbing my brain on pretty much any reading material … Continue reading Research, Reading and Other things pt 1
Haven’t blogged in a while. Not that I’ve been up to much. I start work on Friday (D: <—my terror face), and all the days seem to be going by in a haze. But that’s not what I want to talk about! I like shoes. A lot. I also like custom items. And paint. Recently I bought a pair of white pretend Converse (you know…shoes … Continue reading Shoes! Glorious Shoes!
For those of you who follow my fanpage (www.facebook.com/ArtemisDoodleGod) would have realised that I’ve made my return from my mini-hiatus. While I do enjoy the work that I had been putting out, I felt as if I had been neglecting what comes more naturally to me. In retrospection it feels as if I’d spent so much time trying to find a style that I wasn’t … Continue reading Concepts to Resolve
Today started off as a regular day. Gym, food, e-mail correspondence, reading random stuff on the internet when by chance I clicked on a link (http://networkedblogs.com/xZ08U) which led me to some pretty beautiful tees. I was so inspired that I started sketching an idea that I was having for a few days. So without further ado, here are some awesome tees: (Source: http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/men/4203/) (Source: http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/men/5636/) (Source: http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/6852/) (Source: http://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/detail/men/3889/) … Continue reading Awesome Tees!
I’m taking a mini hiatus. Well, from my FB page (Artemis Art over on http://www.facebook.com/ArtemisDoodleGod :D). I keep being dogged by these feelings that the path that I’m currently on does not lead to my ultimate goal. To that end I’m taking a day or 3 to think about where I am going/where I want to go. What is my bottom line and how do … Continue reading Hiatus?
