Size: ~230mmx 297mm

The most recent cover for Digital Arts features the latest illustration I've made.

The brief was 'beating the economic downturn'. Quite early on the decision was made to evoke the power and dynamic of a wartime poster, or a 'call to arms'. Also, the illustration had to appropriate a much earlier work for the Supersonic festival.

I enjoy working with black/white & red since I studied Walter Gropius and his Bauhaus organization at college. There is a great relationship between this particular scheme, being the most regularly used inks the print industry. I also enjoy the fact that you can create RED from the lack of CYAN or BLACK in the full colour process, and RED is a photo-positive hue due to its low frequency.

Some other elements were made in Sketchup and then screen grabbed, cleaned up and layered in. There's also a photograph of the floor of ATS tyre repairs in Aldridge, West Midlands.
