Here is something a little bit different i came up with whilst desperate housewives was on. Rubbish Show. Its a vector piece, based around some of my own personal views on what snowboarding is about. Enjoy!
If you haven't already seen the photography work of Cole Barash, you don't know what your missing out on. Alot of his work is snowboard focused, but his work does cover a broad range of subject matter. Check out his portfolio here: www.colebarash.com
Here is a small sneak-peak into the next series of artworks i am doing. These are going to be a limited run, and each will be numbered. They will eventually be available for purchase from me, and in select snow/skate stores...keep checking back for updates..
I'm David Ritchie; having majored in Graphic Design at University, i too have a piece of paper (Bachelor of Visual Arts) that tells me i'm good at something. I define myself as being a visual artist, rather than a Graphic Designer. I have a strong passion for art and anything to do with it. I find street art to be the most intriguing, i think its due to the feeling of freedom you get from it, when doing a piece, or even just using the techniques...it also provides a liberating fuck you to all the powers out there that deem it vandalism. I think every piece of spray-painted material, regardless of it original intent, has some amount of artistic merit. So much dope work goes unnoticed.
My other passion snowboarding is a continual inspiration for my work. The entire culture is like a readers digest of ideas..
Above is some of my print/illustration work from last year, which should hopefully get you up to speed on where i am currently with my practice.
im bayley collins and im 24 blah blah blah etc..and i make these animals which usually start out as birds and then turn into something completely different, which i guess is a bit nuts, but i do have a piece of paper (Bachelor of Visual Art and Design) that says i know what i'm doing.
I recently moved up to Auckland from Napier and i am currently hatching a plan.... so hopefully in the near future you will be able to see my birds in bunny suits etc around the city. My work is also available at a gallery back in Napier called aroha lamour www.houseofaroha.co.nz
So yeah please let me know what you think of my work and ill keep you posted on everything that is happening with me and my birds
Also i would like to thank late night shopping and nandos for helping us come up with the name for our blog.
Guess What You Forgot is a web-page dedicated to varied creative disciplines coming from two different backgrounds of graphic design and fine art. I didn't have much of an idea on what to post to kick this thing off, so i thought i'd start with posting a quote from Paul Rand, one of my favourites.
