Visual Style 15: Steering in Anime Movies
Bored-working on making a new casual vest for myself.
Character design, from the original loose idea sketch, through a more considered design process, and to a final image.
Made for a retelling of the Bremen Town Musicians as an 80’s rock folk tale. Made during the fallout from the 2008 economy crash, and set in an American, industrial, “rust belt”, middle earth. The notion was to be Born in The USA + The Wizard of Oz.
The four animals form a rough band to make their fortune on a televised talent show being held in Bremen (a magical motown Detroit where everything will somehow be better).
Gerik is the singer, I imagine him sounding like this.
Fack, I really dig this design, yo.
The lovely lady Petah Coyne is a contemporary American sculpture and photographer who is known for her large scale sculptures composed of organic and unconventional materials. Most of her sculptures contain taxidermy birds, I’m swooning over here.
"The sculptures always deal with death, dead birds, taxidermy, dead fish, and yet beauty, too, like the pearls and other things that I use in these pieces."
