This animation is an homage to one of the most groundbreaking sci-fi television shows ever to beam down to Earth. Our goal was to try and capture the essence of what we found most enjoyable from the series for building this faux opening to this classic show.

I was recently asked to participate in the Travelling Moleskines project, and jumped at the chance! The summary is that you fill either 1 or 2 pages of Moleskine in any way you see fit, based on a theme, and then pass it on. The theme was ‘My World’ which immediately made me think of cheese, but if a blank page is daunting a blank moleskine is more so.
I’ve chosen the next recipient to be Veerle.
I’m big fan of the French artist/illustrator Geneviève Gauckler, having discovered her work via the Guardian Angel Room project.
Now, I’m not sure why, but I was really surprised to see her work (or at least her style) in the backgrounds of CBBC, the site for BBC’s youth output.
I’ve tried to do a bit of searching, but no information is forthcoming, and I can’t see a credit anywhere. I’m surprised, can anyone tell me if these really are her work?
There’s also wallpapers available too:
This year’s SegPub Christmas cards are something special; each one has been illustrated by 4 Segpub-hosted artists. These are now on sale, with 50% from each card sold going directly to Oxfam!
Here are this years designs:
(Clockwise from top left) Mathew Hoy (Hellaboss), Jon Hicks (me!), Claire Robertson (Loobylu) and Nathan Jurevicius (Scary Girl). These are all artists I’ve admired and envied.
The brief we were all given was very flexible – the only stipulation was that it had to incude SegPub Yellow, and the Segpub logo. I have to say, after months of coding and IE bug fixing, it was a joy to just make something. After this I really feel like giving up on coding, and just trying to make a living from plain ol’ design and illustration again.
Cards come in packs of 4, at $12 AUD each pack (excluding GST). Shipping is just $1 per pack to anywhere in the world! Go shopping!
Whilst sorting through some attic boxes, a hidden treasure was discovered that had been forgotten for over 20 years. “The Smash HIts Yearbook 1984” no less, from a time when Neil Tennant was still working for that popular pop music comic, before deciding to spend the rest of his life standing in front of a motionless Chris Lowe.
The best part of this find, was the comic strip “The Story of the Sex Pistols”. I thought this was so insightful, that I’ve set up a photoset on Flickr so that you too can learn the truth behind the seminal punk band! Here’s a little taster:
“They look like they mean it!” was a cry often heard at those early gigs…
A friend of mine, Jonathan Williams, has just set up an online portfolio so now you lucky folks can see just how good he is. He uses a mixture of natural and digital media to achieve his unique style – I love it, it’s so fresh and attractive. (His company name ‘Blazing Fruit’ comes from a poem by Roger McGough)
