run run run run, run run run away.

heres a main and spot i recently finished about how what runners think about while running effects their run - the main sort of focused on the "negative" aspects - the spot (and idea i was really happy with) about the positives

i really liked the idea of the thought bubble being a ball- the AD wanted something Ball and chainy - and i thought it was a perfect solution, but it wasnt chosen, i also really liked the laces brain idea - but they recently did a laces issue, so it was also a no go


heres the spot


heres the main final

the cats in the cradle


heres a piece i recently finished about the underground world of yo-yoing. basically this subculture is heavily related to body moders. The AD and I decided on an image of a cats cradle, which is essentially a game of further challenging levels, which you can only get to by reaching the one before it - sort of like the world of extremists - the further you get in, the further you go.

2009 and I'm feeling fine.

So alot has happened for me in 2008 and thats awesome! I'm building a solid client list, im working really hard and i've been really happy with the way things have been going. But i'm ready for more. I want 2009 to be the most i've ever focused on illustration! I believe in it and love it! Im inspired by so many amazing artists! in no particular order heres a list of artists i love and owe everything to; Brian Cronin, Dan Page (aka like a billion other names), Phillip Nessen, Marco Cibola, Julia Breckenreid, Sandra Dionisi, Jillian Tamaki, Ken Orvidas, Alex Nabaum, Jon Krause, Daniel Bejar, Gary Taxali, Alexei Vella, Mark Cabuena, Josiah Gordon, Vicki Nerino, Nimit Malavia, Jack Dylan, Devon Bowman, Yuta Onoda, and Juan Carlos Solon. These guys (And girls)' beautiful style and ideas blow me away and make me want to make work on par.
I hope to get better and better in 09, and im gonna work like hell to make it happen. Thank you everyone that checks my blog, comments, supports me, hires me, and most importantly - inspires me.
Im off to scotland, new work up SOON!
Best,
Pete
