New flyer goodness. I just finished this poster for Mic Harrison and the High Score. They’re gonna be the backing back for Roger Alan wade for a couple of festivals coming up. Riverbend, and Bonnaroo.

I had fun with this, I got a little crazy with taking pictures and scanning things to create texture layers…but I love transforming a real object into a texture for a digital object (can digital be called an object?)

I think using images from real life really helps me resolve my issues of not wanting everything to be digitally created.
I’m a hands on kinda gal, and it bugs me to use a fake texture when the real thing just feels better.
So, I’ve started to get a pretty good collection of textures together, photographs I’ve taken, scanned images of wrinkled/creased paper, ect.
But enough of my dork ramblin’.

old(ish) crosspost



So, I posted this on my old myspace blog the otherday (http://www.myspace.com/annierankin)
But since I’m trying to get this new blog off the ground, and really let it become a log of my art/craft whatnots I thought I’d just cut and paste it. so here ya go

So, I made a couple of new flyers/fliers/gigposterfor Mic Harrison and the High Score the other day. I’m pretty stoked about ’em.
There’s something I love about the process of layering and transforming images from one thing to another. Even if it’s only slightly changed. Coffee table-photo of coffee table-close up of wood grain on coffee table-adjusted contrast of woodgrain on coffee table=background for flier. Or taking a photograph, printing it out, drawing/painting on it, scanning it and altering it further from there. Fun stuff (for a nerd).
