If you’ve been following my Twitter or Facebook you’ll know that I occasionally share some of the interesting creative works I find across the web.
Sometimes I’ll remember these works and want to go back and look at them again, but unfortunately the timelines on social media pages are not the most intuitive in terms of navigation. So, I’ve set up a new blog to give these things a more permanent home.
Every so often, somebody will get in touch with me via email about my artwork. Normally it’s people wondering if I’ll ever sell or distribute my F1 posters again (no plans right now, sorry) but occasionally something comes in that I feel compelled to answer in detail.
I got one such email recently from a young artist in the UK, who’s aiming to become a designer in the next few years. Since I get these types of mails occasionally I figured it’d be best to post some words on the blog instead of copy/pasting to my outbox, so here goes.
What will you do with the dimensions of the F2002?
The F2002 sketch was part of an idea I had that ultimately didn’t work out. When creating a digital version things didn’t pan out the way I wanted and as such I scrapped the project. The failure of this lead me “back to the drawing board” where I ended up developing the concept of Ten Champions.
It’s been a while since I created some new artwork, but then again a lot has happened in the past year. The new website and blog went live in March and since then things have been rather busy. Fortunately, I found some time to work on a new project, and today’s the day it goes live.
Do you think you'll make an updated version of the Constructors of Formula One poster? It's so beautiful, I'd love to see one for the 2014 season! :D
Thanks for the kind words.
There are no plans currently to update the poster to 2014 statistics. To be honest, the only difference would be the addition of 2013 to the data, although even doing that would mean re-working the graphs as they were drawn manually.
