AusGrind: Australian underground grindcore, punk, doom and DIY culture.

Need an Illustrator?

Posted by mothereel

Just some bird, dropping eggs or pills into an artificial hand.

It's been quiet here, I know.  I'm kind of sorry, but I've kind of been overseas, Europe actually, if you're interested.

All of those emails about the 2013 grind list are being compiled during the hours when I'm not working, doing Grindhead stuff or getting band things organised.  Be patient.

Apologies to Sam for this article.

Samuel Humphreys is an illustrator from Melbourne, Australia who currently styles himself as a highly technical illustrator with exhaustive attention to detail, accuracy and creativity.  You can appreciate a bit of that in the drawing shown, or see more at one of the links below.
He has no formal training or qualification, but I see that as much as a bonus as some would see as a negative - sometimes being well learned in a field can limit your ability, depending on the type of person you are.  He does have experience in the music industry, having done photographic, illustration and promotional work for bands and record labels, including the notable Red Panda Records.

So go to the websites, have a browse, if you're sitting, maybe ponder the use of line and the significance of space.



Give Give Praise Records A Logo/Mascot

This one is all for you designers and graphic artists, or those who like to pretend to be either of those.

Paul from Give Praise Records, a record label that has been dealing in 'shred since 2005', would like to offer you some records in exchange for your talent, whether you think you're talented or not.  According to the website, anything relevent that is sent gets something resembling a record, that's even slightly better than a pat on the back or a tongue in the ear as the old people on those damn boats used to say.  So pick up your pens, your hair stylist or your combie van and get creating that logo or mascot, or even a logo and a mascot (a hint would be to maybe aim at something similar in style to Six Weeks Records or Slap-A-Ham Records stuff).  The winner gets a 'righteous amount of records!!!!!'.
