After Effects Wednesday (tutorial) - Advanced Spin FX
Started uploading some designs to a website that prints them on to products (such as t-shirts, mugs, phone covers etc) and sells them, giving me a tiny bit of profit. Worth a go seeing as it was free to join! Anyone any recommendations for other sites I can use?

Decided I want to do a little mini series of chubby X-Men! Although after doing this I’ve decided not to do them in this style, probably going to ditch Illustrator for Photoshop for this.
Here’s Wolverine anyway, he’s sad because he’s fat.
Any suggestions who I should include? Wolverine, Beast, Cyclops and Magneto are first, then who?
A little personal project I’ve been working on. I look at design blogs on a daily basis, and found that I began skimming through to find articles that really interested me, and these would be about design projects done for charity’s or to help raise awareness for an important cause. Sometimes the actual work wouldn’t impress me (such as this project) and it would make me think how they could have made it better and done more for the cause, other times (and most the time, like with these anti-racial campaigns) they are brilliant and show how great design can drive positive social change.
I’ve looked high and lo for websites or blogs where I can find this type of stuff in one place but failed to find anything that fits the bill (though more recently I found a ‘Charity Comms’ website that has a lot of the marketing and communication elements in one place, which is great!) So, I decided as what I want isn’t there, to do it myself!
Once it’s set up properly Koko will be a blog I keep of all these things. The name comes from Koko the Gorilla, a gorilla who can communicate with humans extremely well using sign language. Koko’s story stuck with me from the first time I saw her online and to me it really brings together whats really important about communication.
On top of all that, my ‘What would you do if you won the lottery?’ answer has always included setting up my own studio dedicated to this type of design and communication work, and it would be called Koko Comms! (Better start actually playing the lottery hey!?)
I’ve been wanting to do something to celebrate my favorite film of all time for a while now. Which if of course - Back To The Future! Here I decided to take some memorable and iconic items and props, and place them with some of my favorite quotes across the trilogy (well, actually just the first 2 movies) Not sure about the background colour, might change that If I ever print these for anything.
An Autumns walk
Wanted to try capture the colours and general feel of Autumn, while it’s still around!
