A Beautiful Day

This mixed-media design was inspired by a lifelong and ongoing passion for music, an intangible yet powerful force which can invoke emotions that we each relate and respond to in our own unique way.

I have chosen two symbolic things to represent my expression of music –

  • A boutique acoustic guitar (photograph taken by me) representing my love and respect for the instrument, both in aesthetics as well as its varying tonal qualities.

*An iconic music group - After conversing with friends and peers from all walks of life and with different musical tastes, general consensus says that there is an aura surrounding this group that demands respect, regardless of whether he/she personally likes or is indifferent to this group. This ‘godlike’ status is highlighted by a single light can shining directly upon the lead singer, giving him an ‘angelic’ vibe.

Together, these two elements recreate a concert scene by which in reality a privileged few who have attended their live concerts often describe it as either ‘beautiful’ or ‘a perfect day’.

This one‘s dedicated to all the musos out there.

Eep the tee template turned out a bit greyer than black :S Anyway it's meant to be a few colors on jet black tee so everything blends in nicely with the background :)

Also, thanks to FrickinEvan for his input on this piece.

Cheers!

When I saw the title on OCAU I thought it may have been a U2 reference, but also thought it was wishful thinking. 5$ :D

Where do I see it on a t-shirt?

Matt - top left mate (the 3 boxes). Just a heads up the tee template turned out grey rather than my desired black.

It's an interesting design, but I don't think it works, especially on the tshirt. Sorry, I have no other advice.

Am I the only one that really hates U2?

reags
reags profile pic Artist

I was beginning to worry you two wouldn't show up, ha. No dramas gentlemen, each to their own style/tastes :) On that note, cheers again all, have a great night/day!

Are you talking to Stu and I reags?

Bramish
Bramish profile pic Alumni

What drama? I just don't like U2. For me this is too cartoony and specific to appeal to me. I like what you're trying to do and it's a solid idea, I just don't think the styles marry well.

I couldn't do it any better having said that.

Winck

great work

haha I think we just had a language barrier moment there bram - here in Oz 'no dramas' means 'no problem', so there is none at all I appreciate both your/staff's input.

crunchynut

Now this is what I'm talking about - unique style, well composed and mini U2! 5!

What guitar is that by the way it looks rad

always like original mixed styles/media designs too.

U2 pulled out of Glastonbury at the last minute this year - was a bit gutted not to see them. But then The Edge did come on stage at the end of The Muse set to do Streets Have No Name, which was pretty magical.

Big thanks guys :)

Dexter - man whenever I hear about a U2 gig I get a buzz, so to hear your story is pretty sweet I must say. Personally I've never had the privilege to see em live due to timing & costs (yet) except via that free youtube concert broadcast, but from photographs and stories I've heard it really is an experience. One day my friend, one day!

Bunny Dojo

Nice choice of my favorite band and an incredibly interesting presentation. Well done, man!

I rate it somewhere between uno, dos, tres, and catorce. ;)

tonybonanza on Jul 04 '10 great photo-illo mash up that steers away from pop culture (thank goodness), would be awesome to see this and more like this printed!

I'm not sure what part of "obvious caricatures of one of the biggest bands in the world, sans remote use of parody" is "steering away from pop culture".
