Sooooooooo. Figured I wasn’t just going to sell you guys a breakcore video and then shut up shop. OH NO! I’ve created a full DVD complete with CD, packaging and booklet to boot!
I’ve posted some DPS attempts on her previously, but jib them raaaaa off, because I now hate them (too easy/no particular theme/done on the cheap/shit). So some new ones:
I’m pretty pleased with them, and they got a decent response from Lee today, as well. He made a few suggestions as too how to place the type, as (like the music) I’m glitching it up and breaking some rules with it positioning (as well as miss-matching conflicting styles).
He mention that I could create new parrelel sentences or phrases depending on how I postion my words. In the first examples case the ‘breakcore often questioned’ came about as I pure fluke, yet does sooooooo much good as I’m explaining in the booklet that breakcore is indeed often questioned.
You’ll notice during the video and on these that I’m wearing a suit, and there’s a very good explination for this. Breakcore messes with the mind, and put audio samples in rather strange predicaments, thus I’m attempting to turn the bourgeois nature of the suit on its head by wearing one with my dreads affray, painting in a strange enviroment. (It’s a decent visual nonetheless)
Now, I’ve used some worn textures on my work countless times before (to the extent that I might have just adopted a ‘style’, yet the style of type is slightly new to me and I want to show you where my inspiration came from.
The colouring, and regal typefaces (big carson and edwardian script) were inspired by the clothing brand ‘Luke 1977’.
Decent usage of red and white type, It sort of reminds me of the royal wedding design stuff (one of my other pages in actually a snipe at the some wedding’s design).
Onto other stuff, I forget the guy’s name who did these, but Tash linked it on her facebook wall a week or so back:
Notice the kind of ‘scrapbook’ feel to it? The dirt and the typewriter style type are awesome and I’m well keen to work more like this is in the future.
I hope you’re beginning to see the styles I’ve drawn influence from (I might post more random stuff up in the future).
Whilst I’m at it. Check All Saints out (I know they’re all the rage right now, hence why they should hire me)
It’s like Grunge came back, with deodorant.
