Darren Booth

Darren Booth: Opportunity for Collaboration
Check out the work of Canadian-based illustrator Darren Booth. His layered compositions and visible brushtrokes have a nice energy to them, and his compositions remind me a little of Hopper. (Just a tiny bit, mainly in the way Darren renders humans.) I also really like the three-dimensional aspect of his lettering work.

Here’s where you come in. Darren’s looking for a way to break into motion, preferably via a collaborative project. If you’ve got a project that could use his skills or if you can think of project that might be mutually beneficial, drop him a line and see what happens.

EDIT: I had to take down the previously posted Buck item because the link was pointing to their internal servers. Oops.

Logan, again.

Logan Updates. A lot.

Logan has updated with a huge amount of new stuff, the highlights of which (in my opinion), are the first two featured jobs for Apple ‘1000 songs’ and Citroen ‘l’echappe’.

1000 songs rubs me the right way, its a clever visual solution for a specific message, as opposed to the more broad awareness spots for earlier apple products (actually, there is another new ipod spot in this update as well). Although the ipod at the end looked a bit dogey to me… vaguely 2d -but that might be because ipods are ridiculously slim now, and I just can’t make it out from the size of the quicktime. Then again, who am I to complain?

The second spot I’m going to talk about is ‘l’echappe’. I’m not completely sold on this spot, I like it – but there is something which bothers me and I’m not sure what. The compositing & tracking is top notch, as is the animation. Hmm. As always, we’d like to know what you think about it, leave a comment below.
