I haven’t had much time to do many illustrations this week. I managed to pull together this flier for the Spoonboy gig, which actually turned out better than I expected. I’m not too keen on how quickly I had to do the type at the bottom, and if the guitar really did have wings in the position I’ve drawn the back one I think it would probably go around in circles! Otherwise I think it’s cool.
The flier wears it’s influence to Eric Ravillious fairly closely. I got interested in his work about 18 months ago, and there was a pretty amazing monograph of his work in the Central St Martins library that I poured over whilst I was there. Not surprisingly he did a similar image to this one, with a stork dragging someone into the clouds. I can’t find the image anywhere online but another image from the same set of images is here under #27 Consequences.
The Spoonboy gig should be a lot of fun. It was funny seeing it advertised on London Indymedia; a lot more prominent that I would have expected!
