The ace guys over at the Soccerbible got in touch recently to get me involved with their magazine, in particular to throw some shapes for a very well known visionary who may or may not be making his way to Manchester...
I've been getting a lot of fun vibes from people about my Colour and Lines, so a big thank-you for that! Wired's always been one of my fave mags, there's the amazing content, there's the mind-meltingly great editorial design and then there's the cover with it's textured tactile tasty touchy feely approach.
This issue is particularly awesome as it has a bit of my art flowing through it - you can find them in the Special Feature section - ooooh. Had tons of fun whipping up the illustrations associated to multiple themes including the Future of Collaboration and Robot Trucks, yeah - I just said Robot Trucks! Who wouldn't like throwing down some shapes for a theme like that!
Here's a swift snippet of one of the illustrations:
You can view the entire project over on my - Behance page.
When I received the commission I also had a little 'wooo' - chuffedness moment as my illustrations run along side one of my favourite creatives Stefan Sagmeister, that right there is another reason to get your hands on the mag.
Big thanks go to the AD - Ben Fraser
The awesome guys over at IdN world have featured my work - in particular my rendition of the Beatles - Abbey Road cover. Super simple lines, cutting right to the core of the subject matter - you can view the short, but sweet article here - Colour and Lines by James Oconnell
Music has always played a massive part in my life, whether it's crafting a piece of work or sitting in the sun listening to an audio book. I can see a hell of a lot more music pieces coming soon...
