Here’s a branding project I just completed for a hockey (field hockey) touring side. The concept was based around one guy, as it was his team, and the fact it doubled up as a stag do of sorts for him as well. The logo is due to be printed on shirts, and beanie hats (it’s cold where they went) so some more pictures of the branding in placement will follow. This project was a nice one to do, partly for the commercial element and working for a client, but also working digitally. It’s nice to flex various muscles when given the opportunity to. I must admit, a branding project was really really fun!
So, one thing I’ve been afraid to do is take a leap, where drawing is concerned. I’d never have turned down the chance to draw something for somebody if asked or work with people if the offer came up, but I always waited, never instigated such things. Now I’m putting myself out there. I’m taking on commissions as of………..NOW! This is a new venture for me. If you, or someone you know wishes to commission me please shout. Friendly advice is also appreciated.
Here it is! The finished illustration.
Obviously this is a tribute to Guillermo Del Toro’s film, Pan’s Labyrinth. While I really like the aesthetic of the image in this completed stage I also think there is perhaps another level somewhere? Possibly as a print?
I’ve been really busy of late, so finding time to finish this off has been quite scarce. Not wanting to ‘burn out’ and start hating this piece I’ve begun working in stages to help keep the buzz.
If anybody is interested I now have an Instagram account, which I’ll be using for constant WIP updates. Check me out at @adam_john_cook.
