A MIND OF MY OWN by ekud A MIND OF MY OWN by ekud
Justin Maller for Mc Pez.

Folio updated with eight new projects; hope you'll enjoy!

This is the illo I created for Pez's current 'Mind Of My Own' tour shirt. I had to try and keep it simple; the photo is a great live shot, full of grit and noise, which makes it a lot more challenging to work with. I wanted to create something with an iconic feel, full of energy and dynamism that still flowed with the original shot.

Obviously this isn't the most technically advanced piece, but my attempt at finding a happy compromise between form and function.

this piece is amazing... I dunno what it is about it, the colours or something, or even those little flashes of orange (by the way, did you create those or was it a play with the ligting) but it is a great piece.

You're slightly too talented for your own good. I'm sure being responsible for that much skill is both a gift, and a curse.

nice work.. i saw this on your site... the perception of depth is so well executed, and the construction of your 'blur effects' flow so naturally it seems almost natural, like it belongs exactly as it is.

Worked out just fine Justin, the subtleness does it justice and holds everything in balance. Next to that, it brings this bit of flair and charm with it which goes very well with the artist, his movement and your vision, without losing it's energy. Well done :nod:
