On Saturday 11th February, Quad had the wrap party for its awesome experimental audio visual exhibition, v.01, which included collaborations between regular nights at Quad and local creatives.  For the opening portion of the event, LongPlayer (an album playback night) chose ‘Cerulean’ by Baths, Five Lamps Films submitted videos for some of the tracks and Pixel Synthesis got Pictographik in to do a  live visual remix of the cover artwork in the duration of the album.

Above is the original artwork by Jesselisa Moretti, and below are the two remixs the pictobrain spewed forth.


The album lasts about 45 minutes but after recently completing a qualifier for the Cut & Paste tournament which gives you 15 minutes to complete a piece of work, I finished pretty quickly, so did two! Enjoy.

Blimey, another year passsed and what a productive year it was. It began with cd artwork for the A Plastic Rose guys (with more underway at present); picking up a new client and receiving regular artwork requests from Ground Level records main man and legend Andy McAllister; doing a spread for From Dusk 2 Dawn magazine and getting artwork in too; making it into the first edition of the highly contentious C A R S O N magazine that was designed/not designed by David Carson (now known as ‘Untitled magazine‘, making the first edition more collectable I guess!?); curating a live digital art event called Pixel Synthesis [blog here] in Quad [website here] (thanks for your continuous support team Quad); a ukulele themed charity tee shirt design for local music shop Foulds and finishing with getting  a mention in the ComputerArts magazines December inspiration list on their blog. Phew.

And this year is already off to a good start with a new client! Happy New Year folks, lets hope its a good one for all of us, eh?!
