Finally finished this, been working on it since winter break. The character is the visual representation of the Copyright, which I decided to make after reading numerous William Gibson novels, in with artificial intelligences and other non-form based objects are treated as characters. 90% of this illustration is also made out of Helvetica letterforms--I like the idea of taking something almost completely characterless and making it into a character.

According to the humble observations of this artist our use and discard mentality as a society extends to more than just the consumption of goods. Second part of the previous post, same blue palette, size, but different feel completely. Wish I could say more but it is meant to be a pretty quick read.
Muse is the choice music for working in this style, perfectly dramatic. Despite their widespread popularity Muse has retained a lot of their integrity, and they make superb music on almost every album they come out with. Matthew Bellamy's voice is operatic.

I broke my resolution to be more economical with my line work. The modern aristocracy has all of the coke and this illustration is basically exploring that idea. I tried my hardest to get this done in time for merits, alas, it didn't pan out. I'm going to probably make a large color kip print of this anyway, as it was illustrated to be printed huge.

Here is the final screenprint on the subject of green bombs--bombs that reduce carbon emissions. I decided on the shape to represent more of an explosion and ditch the small text. Overall I'm happy with the message it conveys, as it remains observant and neutral rather than too confrontational. Can no longer feel my feet, I did this eight layer screenprint in two days. Had to expedite my process because of an upcoming interview and merit scholarships. Overall a great success in comparision to my first couple of screenprints.
