Just a start, some images, types of font and illustration i enjoy. I am working on branding and labeling myself as an artist. It should prove an interesting process.
Very rough sketches, thinking on the point made on considering were this brand is going to live, for me it will be the face of my work (social media, website etc...) but also will be stamped onto each of my finished pieces. That being said i am working to create someting that speaks to me as an individual and that will be simple enough that it is not distracting from the art work that it will live on.
Im leaning more towards the image in the top left of the above sheet.
So what does this image have to do with anything i have posted previously? I know a farcry from where i started by through some thought and evaluation of this self branding project i looked back at some of the first images on my mood board of the stamps and the portraits of the presidents. I really like the idea of using the profile shot of myself. Oddly enough i have been recognized by my hair (not by choice, it is just the location I am in) I thought if would be cool to use this image as my brand, putting the detail in the hair with the face not quite as detailed. This is also a brand that can change with me over time. I believe I am going to locate the text underneath the profile and make use in the infiti symbol in a more subtle manner with the text.
