Rotterdams Open Doek Filmfestival – There were only winners…

MF-ROD-LV-filmfestival-presentation

In May 2017 a season of short films ended with the Rotterdams Open Doek Filmfestival, as every year, hosted by Lantaren Venster in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I was asked to illustrate Rotterdams skyline, combined with their logo. This was printed on the CREWs T-shirt and on another bunch for merchandise purpose that night.

The above picture I did just for fun for my portfolio. I got a bit carried away….
Below is the print on the chest and (official logo on the) sleeve.

Echoes from the Dark Ocean – by Jeremiah R

So happy I can finally share this work with you!
This label design I made for Jeremiah R’s record Echoes from the Dark Ocean,
Distant Wave Record.

The font is made with an old (half working) Olivetti typewriter and in the computer.
The jellyfish pictures are JR’s own, which I edited by hand and the computer.

As I’m also doing the course ‘Make Art That Sells, part B’, I sent in a submission for Uppercase’s editorial assignment as well (click here for the first one).
As an artist or creative you have favorite things to wear, to work in or just to picture yourself in, although you’ll never wear it (e.g. because a lack of money, or inconvenience):

I like to picture myself in a big furry coat with some Marni and Gucci references, with a touch of sweet femininity (the flowers and pastels).
My tattoos, for some reasons they’re all about eyes in some way, had to be in the picture too.  And I’ve also just purchased a very cool blouse with eyes, quite similar to one of my tattoos…. So of course this all had to be a part of my editorial ‘fashion portret’.
I added plants, the night and a strange place too, whereas those are my recurring fascinations in illustrations lately.
