Photofit: Self-Portraits

From Studio8 Design's website, this awesome project...
A project for The Guardian Weekend Magazine by Matt Willey and Giles Revell. Fourteen people were asked to create self-portraits, using a police Photofit kit from the 1970s, without referring to photographs or mirror images of themselves. They were then interviewed by Philip Oltermann on the subjects of identity and the self.

The New DFolio

I've been busy over the last few weeks relocating my webfolio to a new site that I hope looks a lot slicker, and better communicates my work. It still requires a few tweaks so please take a look, and let me know what you think...

 Otherwise, I hope you enjoy...


It also goes without saying that if you have some work available, please don't hesitate to contact me!

While I've got you here, if you want to opt out of Dsend or otherwise change your subscription details there is an option at the bottom of every mailout (or just send me an email). Conversely, if you know someone who might appreciate Dsend get them to email me! You can also send me anything YOU think might be of interest to your fellow readers any time as well!

Blood And Milk

Frédéric Fontenoy uses blood and milk to adapt the Paper marbling (using pigments on a shallow canvas of water) technique.

Penny Arcade Sells Out

One of the worlds leading and most prolific webcomics has initiated this interesting kickstarter(though with some pretty lacklustre if amusing rewards), aiming to rid itself of all advertising on their site (which currently keeps them and over a dozen employees employed). They are an inspiration to me as a creative, so I'll be interested to see how this pans out.
Regardless, it's a fantastic web comic that I read and listen to (its videocasts); though perhaps only of interest to the 'videogame and pop culture like-minded' (explicit)

Embroidered Portraits: Cayce Zavaglia

Embroidered Portraits by Cayce Zavaglia



I've just finished listening to friend and ex-colleague; Paul Houlihan's Podcast, the Paperockcast. Going strong at eight episodes, it's a good production with a relaxing if spirited 'on the couch' style discussion of games new and old- As well as finishing up with a regular Group gaming session... Check it out (explicit).

Movie Trailers

Jack Reacher
To go with the re-do of Total Recall, it's a recall of Total Recall

War of the Worlds

I just recently finished H.G Wells' War of the Worlds and apart from being an absolutely fantastic (and recommended) read it reminded me of the equally great Orson Wells radio play of the same book was that of course rather controversially had a few people wondering if an alien invasion was imminent. Check out the 1938 Halloween broadcast...

The Star Wars That I Used to Know

If you're familiar with the rather stunning Gotye 'Somebody That I Used To Know ' (featuring Kimbra) track and you're a Star Wars fan still smarting from the prequels, you might enjoy the below parody by teddiefilms

Videogame Trailers: TF2

TF2 (Team Fortress 2) is a great, free to play, multiplayer FPS (First Person Shooter) with a long history. My real interest in it is the art direction; which apart from a gorgeous, highly stylised design aesthetic carries over wonderfully into the various 'promo' videos which introduce each character. They are cartoonly violent, dark humoured and a stand out example of how to holistically create a video game universe and experience... and so enjoyable to watch.

The Pyro (above) has just been released but check out the other videos. Also, have a look at this interesting and powerful open source movie maker used by Valve to create these movies!
