Metropolis Magazine

Spread for Metropolis Magazine. The title treatment was cut from tape and photographed, then the composition with other details was done in photoshop. Read the article here


Plz lie on your back?

Our IT guy handed me this, its been on his desk for weeks apparently its from a japanese sales member wanting to know if this is correct english, fantastic little illustration made with complete  benevolence.

Odaiba Soho Studio Visit

Nice studio space in Odaiba, Strangely quiet though? The roof had deck chairs to watch the sunrise if you fancied it.

Alternative Manga

Recently made this layout for Metropolis Magazine, the article looks at a new book called AX Vol. 1: A Collection of Alternative Manga edited by Sean Michael Wilson (Top Shelf Productions, 2010) and looks at avant-garde manga. Twisted and rare manga translated into English. Although we had to tame down the pages shown in the Magazine, the book contains some pretty gnarly stuff.  Read all about it here.

A couple of examples of the stronger stuff, maybe not train material (unless you are a respected Japanese businessman), but interesting anyways.
