My submission for the One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Penguin competition. Seeing as I've never read the book, I kinda just focussed on what I knew. He was sort of a janitor, some dude slits his throat, there's something about running away and mist apparently. Combining these unknown aspects, I feel I was able to create a suitable cover. I think.
This is my final for the D&AD brief of designing the Little White Lies cover using Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Seeing as portraiture is not my strong point, and that is almost entirely what the brief asks for, I decided to make the title the main focal point. Originally I couldn't draw Gary Oldman, instead creating the mutant child of Jack Nicholson and Kim Jong Il. Thankfully it passed. Sort of.
A tribute toward our favourite pub, the Nowhere Inn. This was a collaboration piece with Jonny Ellis
and Adam Reid. Using lyrics from songs found on the jukebox, my work I feel reflected the atmosphere of the pub very well. Eventually we gave the zine to the pub, and it can be found on display behind the bar. Didn't even get a free pint though, bastards.
Road to Nowhere - Talking Heads.
Cut Your Hair - Pavement.
Bobby Brown - Frank Zappa.
Oh You Pretty Things - David Bowie.
Transmission - Joy Division.
These are the original Dictator Bunny comic strips that went on to inspire the Dictator Bunny zine. Overall I was very happy with the results, yet more so in shorter single panelled strips in which I was able to deliver the punch line a lot quicker and effectively.
Here are the final artworks for Illus 320. Dictator Bunny originally spawned from a comic strip that explored my hatred for pop/celebrity culture. Through this zine, I attempted to extend the narrative and to touch on Dictator Bunny's origin. Through the implementation of a dream and chase sequence, I was able to create three narratives that eventually culminated on the final page with the capture of Ben Affleck. The twat.
