Ball Photographs

Found the work of David Spero, A British Photographer, these Ball photographs are beautiful and remind me of a few drawings Nicolas did a While ago, in that there refer to constellations (although I believe these images aren't referencing particular constellations, they invent their own), they are truly beautiful, it is a constant driving force to try and make illustrations that are as beautiful as photography like this, I'm not sure they can be in the same way, which can be frustrating, but constantly inspiring.

From the blog of Brooke Berger, an American photographer who has some really nice stuff herself, and a good reference point.

My first few days of no 'real' employment. I have probably spent
more time on the internet than for a long time, all in the nae of research and development obviously. I feel like I've emailed myself out now so going to actually try and make some work.
I have this bottle of rum staring at me

as I am taking part in an exhibition with Havana Club and Intercity Design that will be shown in London in July with some pretty great people (like Luke Best, Marion Deuchers, Paul Davies, Kid Acne, Ian Wright, Deanne Cheuk and loads more) so Im deciding what to do, and constantly trying to fend off the desire to drink it.

I ahve put a few new photos up on my Flickr and have updated the Vest For Tysso Myspace with new news and beautifully coloured typographic nastiness.

Today I left my job, a job where I have worked for about 4 1/2 years, whilst I was a student and for the past 2 years just as a person. It started part time but got progressively fuller time. After simply too much time there, and a couple of good(ish) commissions I am now able to leave my job and try to be an illustrator kind of full time. At least for a while anyway. I plan to use this blog now as a bit of a commentary on that, how it's going, where I go wrong and hopefully sometimes where I go right, it may be helpful to some, if just to console and sympathise with, but hopefully it will keep me motivated and positive.
