I am starting a non-Threadless self project
Over my year of subbing on Threadless the temptation has always been there to try and mimic the styles of those who are much more prolific and whilst i love the varied art styles on here i simply can not pull myself away from clean lines and simple designs. The work of jameses_x being an example of the simplistic style i am attracted to, Whilst the work of Mike Bautista and Melmike are simply amazing i simply can not emulate work like that, all i know is what i know and i am attracted to bold clean lines and simplified colouring.
This may not be what Threadless are looking for but it does not matter to me anymore, I want to create for fun and so i have started this side project, a book titled 101 Facts About Alcohol
Whilst my font work is probably my biggest weakness, I have roped in another Threadless regular to help out with the typography ( They are starting on Sunday ), It was their idea to turn this project into a small humorous book and i am really excited.
Here are the first few designs i have at the moment and i will be adding more as time goes on. Please let me know your thoughts, your favourite drinks and of course any witty notes you may have about your favoured tipple :-)
