Missing page in Arthur’s journal

Oh, that feeling when you are playing Red Dead Redemption 2, exploring its tranquil landscapes when all of a sudden things take a strange turn and you find yourself flying through the air. “Do I still have that Horse Reviver?” – you think.

Here’s my tribute to Rockstar’s masterpiece of this year, I present you a missing page from Arthur Morgan’s journal.



I’ve started with studying various drawings from Arthur’s journal. Ahem… well I actually became quite obsessed with them and couldn’t wait to explore more of the RDR2 map just to unveil more of those beautifully crafted sketches. Sadly, I couldn’t find any info about the actual artist, if you know, please leave a comment below.

In hopes that nobody sees my first sketch I quickly scribbled this:

Album cover art for Taipei Qin Hall – 臺北琴道舘.

A concept album cover for Mr. Yuan Zhong Ping’s GuQin album. Taking inspiration from the philosophy of Taoism, the union of black and white visually shows how music has the power to harmonise seemingly opposing elements to create something new.

To give the cover a more authentic feel I chose a wood grain texture as if it was printed using an old woodblock.

Bobson – print ad

Here’s a nice one from the time when I was with ManghamGaxiola. We were working on Bobson account back then – an Okayama based company back from 1940, famous for manufacturing high quality denim with insane attention to detail. Japanese jeans. I’m serious, Google this stuff.

So how to show pure Japanese denim?

We also made a bunch of different scenarios later on. It’s cool and all, but the geisha one is my favorite. It’s a pity the ad never saw the light.

Oh, yeah, don’t mind the Japanese Lorem Ipsum up there around the border.

DataX2 – print ad

Here’s a print ad we made back at Ogilvy. Singtel was about to launch a DataX2 plan, where with a nominal fee you could double up your mobile data. During our research we looked into old boxing posters for some inspiration and came up with this idea – The Fight For Your Data Stops With DataX2.

Agency: Ogilvy and Mather
Creative Director/Copywriter: Stephen Kyriakou

process

My process for this type of illustration is quite straightforward: sketching on paper and defining the composition, creating basic shapes in Illustrator, weathering done in Photoshop using the Force and some custom brushes.

Clara Clayton Canyon

The second print from the series goes to the iconic DeLorean and BTTF3. Still experimenting with this style, but already liking the results I can get simply by adding a little bit of rough texture to the silky smooth vector.

Above is my design process from start to finish.

Puer woodblock print

Amazingly beautiful woodblock print on a Sheng PuEr tea wrapper. I like how the tea leaves changed the color of paper around the picture in 8 years.
