Yeah. I liked the simple one for some reason. I was recommended a change in another thread that turned out well, but my friend wanted to keep the same style he had with his first logo for the first name of the company which he wasnt able to keep.

Couple of things i've been up to lately. (Just a note, on the Boogaloo poster, the "Boogaloo", Eatz N Beatz, Broken Culture and Winchester logo's aren't mine. I did everything else though.)

Love your work man, I've no clue what so ever, on how to do anything like this, Just cant get my head around the software and programs..

 

I've been thinking of getting a Graphics tablet to draw shit straight on to my PC than having paper, blackbooks all around the place.

Just thought it might be handy in buying a Graphics tab to draw some rough sketches etc.

 

Is there anything I need to know before getting one? I'm pure clueless when it comes to stuff like this..I want something thats pretty decent, but don't have to be a professional one, Just something to use or get used too. I don't care if its wireless or not, as long as it draws good lines etc.

I'm thinking of investing in a new laptop when windows 8 comes out, so prob get a half decent pen then.

 

If you have any suggestions or info, could you please let me know..

Cheers man..

 

PS Props on the work!!!!!!!!

 

Nice one..

The "Backyard Boogaloo" guys are putting on an album launch party for Fliptrix, the head of UK hip-hop label High Focus Records, and seeing as i've done them a couple posters in the past they came to me to put something together for it.

As usual, the Winchester, High Focus, Eats N Beatz and Boogaloo logo's aren't mine. Just layout and illustration and whatever whatever.

Thanks for the kind words man, means alot!

 

I worked with vectors a bit in the past at my first graphic design job, i copped a Wacom tablet but never really got used to using it much and as it came with a mouse, ended up using it just as a mouse really. After a while i lost the pen to it and i moved away for uni and just really forgot about it, fast forward a couple years and i was trying to get into the freelance game and was having a hard time getting what i was doing on paper to the computer effectively so i figured i'd give working with a tablet another go.

 

The tablet i got this time around was a "Bamboo Touch" by Wacom, in the small size. They do different versions that have different features, some can be used as a touch pad, some are wireless, that kind of thing. Generally though as long as it's got a pen you're good. I found it a bit strange at first, mostly looking forwards at a screen instead of looking down at where the pen is, that kind of thing. But after a while you get the hang of it.

I found the best way to get myself into it was to draw on paper, then scan it in or take a flick of it and draw over it using the tablet.

 

After about a year of messing around and getting used to it i figured i'd treat myself to a better tablet and got a "Intuos 4" by Wacom. Whilst i had no complaints using the "Bamboo", the leap in quality, at least in my eyes, is pretty massive and worth every penny. I honestly couldn't recommend either tablet enough. Both come with software that walks you through set-up and gets you started pretty easily.

One thing to take note of is that prices can jump up if you start looking at bigger tablets, but unless you really need a big drawing space, don't bother spending the extra moolah. I've found the small sized tablets to be plenty in terms of drawing space. Plus it's easy to forget that the tablets themselves are bigger than just the drawing area, so when you jump up a size or two, they can take up more desk space than you may think.

 

There's alot of tutorials that are easy to follow that can help get you up and running, i've found youtube to be pretty handy for that kind of thing, aswell as websites such as http://vector.tutsplus.com/ and http://abduzeedo.com/ amongst others.

 

Hope this helps! If there's anything else feel free to ask dude, and thanks again for the props on the work front, much appreciated.

All vector this time, no textures. Also it's only a second draft, so still a work in progress but i think i'm getting near the end. Just waiting on some feedback from the client.

I never understood what this digital work was about, until last week I started my graphic design program and now I can appreciate how awesome the work in here is. Miss this place.
