A casual hour long composite piece, made as an example for a workshop creating fantasy worlds to learn Photoshop techniques. The picto-brain has been reading about Egypt recently and seems to have influenced this image a little… Nice.

I have a few friends who are graffiti artists and in recent conversations, I was informed of some of the ‘etiquette’ of the art form. Some of these rules included: a- to not spray near an established artists work to gain kudos from their piece, and b- to not cover over another piece of work if it still looks reasonably fresh, just to get a good location.

Well…

In defence of the picto-brain, it was done digitally – no actual art was harmed in the creation of a piece of design.

A brief required an image of a wall by a road… stock image sites had been trawled with no luck… Then I remembered a photo I took just off Brick Lane… with a little photoshop magic it was the perfect wall…

I really like this piece by Guy Denning and ‘painting’ it out felt quite wrong but, its a great wall and at least it wasn’t real. The finished piece of design is for a music download (hence the square crop) and can’t be revealed until the tracks go public – keep your ears and eyes open people.

Here’s the before and after – sorry Guy:

Another piece of work for Fisso & Spark. This weighty track needed an appropriate image to fit it, so the picto-brain wrangled pixels to make this composite:

Hello folks – Happy New Year! (late I know, but better late than never I guess!) Apologies for the long radio silence – the picto-brain has been relocating to a new creative space and settling in. Work has continued- some new pieces will be up shortly- and details of some new collaborations will be revealed in the near future… keep your ears and eyes open.

The 1623 theatre company provide theatre performances, learning workshops, award-winning participatory activities and inspirational training courses all formed from or inspired by the works of Shakespeare. They’re currently conducting a research-and-development project that engages people creatively with King Lear in the context of dementia, a part of which is an open submission asking for creative responses to the quote ‘Let me not be mad’. [details here - closes 20th Sept!]
Here is the pictographik submission, a photoshop composite that hopefully echoes the tone of the phrase. (…maybe?!) Once the image is uploaded to their site, a link will be added.

The original stock photos (below) came from sxc and were uploaded by user Leroys, check out his awesome detailed images here. The type is a combination of Times New Roman and Fusion.

Here’s another piece of download artwork for Fisso & Spark for their next single ‘Dynamics’. It’s from their album ‘Future’ on Ground Level records and will be out in the er… near future! Here is the full series to see it in context:
