Julien Opie.

This image of myself was created on photoshop in the style of Julien Opie. Done by using a basic image and stroking the main features of the face and then filling in the sections with block colour. Overall this style of image is very pop-art and would work well for an album cover but has previously been done by "Blur".

Constructed Photography

This is scanned from my sketchbook, i used mixed materials to create a multi-layered image; editorial pictures and textures. By using a scalpel knife and removing segments of the main image it opens up windows to the materials behind, creating depth. To add an illustration element to this creation i used a blue fine liner to make sharp shapes and emphasize certain details.

This technique could be applied to create and album cover, depending on the album name/music genre/band name, the diversity of this is amazing - making it possible to change the purpose and meaning of the illustration.

Matthew Hollings.

Matthew Hollings’ work attempts to bridge the divide between traditional draftsmanship and contemporary digital mark-making. Images initially start out as hand drawings before being scanned into the computer to be coloured and composed.

Influences are drawn from a range of subjects, often found in the content of his work. Matthew is equally as comfortable addressing mark-making challenges of portraiture to conceptual demands of narrative.

Matthew is a graduate of Camberwell College of Arts and currently lives and works in London.
