1000 Words. Day 6.



A Thousand Words.


It’s widely accepted that a picture paints a thousand words, right?

…So, for the week, I’m going to let the pictures do the talking. Especially since my last couple of posts have been word-heavy.

Check back every day this week for the next photograph.

Great Value! This week’s feature also comes with a bonus post…

“Exploration and Discovery; The Final piece and Exhibition” 

Check back midweek. Ish.

Lead Balloon.


I’m going off on another creative tangent. I’ve decided to have a go at designing T-shirts, under the brand, Lead Balloon. Hopefully, it’ll give me an avenue for showcasing my graphics-based and more goofy efforts, and provide a nice change of pace from taking mellowed out Black and Whites.

From the Facebook page:

“A stupid clothing brand. Hand-printed. Lovingly designed and crafted. Each item is a one-off!


Lead Balloon. Goofy, yet stylish T-shirt design.
We’d like to think we combine the best of both worlds, mashing together hip-hop(ish) styling and a punk ethos, and meeting half-way between graffiti and comic-book aesthetics.
We strongly believe in DIY high quality products. All T-shirts will be hand printed, making each print a one-off, and that little bit more special. 
This will be a labour of love. We love every single one of you.
A stupid, friendly, clothing brand.”

I’m also looking forward to getting to grips with a new medium; Screen Printing!

Let me know what you think, I’ll be sure to keep you updated on designs and more!
