It's interesting the way these things work, in that . . .ideas shift and change, and sometimes there is something nagging away at my subconscious that says 'change it'. This is likely to be the FINAL design for this project, and should be off to print very very soon. I decided to change the rune/symbol thing in the middle because I felt that the last one didn't really cut it, and I knew I could come up with something more interesting. It's still all about eyes . . .

A couple of poster designs for things on the way . . .the first design is for a gig I have coming up in early June. Which, just like the last will be an Ableton live set, with some video in there as well. I think this time maybe some of it will be left a bit more to chance, and I might take a few more risks. It should be a fun night anyway, and the whole thing is going to be filmed by a good friend. I will also be (as always) audio recording the whole event. The skull image is not mine, but something I found on google images, it just really fit with a layout idea I had. The second is from the forthcoming Flux remix LP launch, which is looking liek it will be a huge night.

Found this photo this morning when going through some old folders of stuff. It's interesting to look at actual film photos as apposed to digital files. I'm really not one of the old school complainers about 'the death of film' but on the other hand it is really nice to hold an image in your hands. I suppose it's a lot like vinyl as apposed to Mp3 . . .it's obviously much more of a tactile thing. I think this is interesting picture anyway, compositionally.

Watched a movie called 'The Ice Storm' tonight, which I thought was at least somewhat interesting. . .then I listened to Sylvian Chauveau 'Nauge' and this put me in a strange headspace. I hadn't really written anything in my diary in the last few days, so I pulled it out and this is what happened. These made me think about worlds within worlds and how people hide, and not even in a negative way. This line of thinking is what I got from 'The Ice Storm', as it seemed to me that a lot of the main characters were living in little spaces within spaces.
