Dizzy Gillespie

* Do you know John Birks "Dizzy" Gillespie?
- It's the one and only Dizzy Gillespie. 

 "Dizzy" was an American jazz trumpeter, bandleader, composer and, occasionally, singer. One of his most famous quotes was the... "It's taken me all my life to learn what not to play." This is one of my friends St.D favorite quote as well and that was a chance for another creative stencil typography.

I designed and cut off the quote on a hard paper. The size of the stencil, is about 1,50x70 cm and the surface is silver blinds. First i paint a transparent black for making the shadow and then the orange color. The one that i really love is that the blinds gives a very nice effect if you roll it up n' down! A nice analogue effect...

have fun!

Sotos Bakas - Odyssey (EP)

...welcome back people from this insane summertime session! I hope everyone had a great time too!

The real "payback" is here with the first of winters post... and my special guest is "Sotos Bakas"!! Sotos realesed his first solo EP as a result of many years of action through music. I had the great opportunity to work with him on the artwork of "Odyssey" EP and by extension his profile, website etch. A quite attentive work from both sides!

Sotos gave me the green light to create... so i shot the photos, work hard on Abode photoshop-Adobe illustrator, create a unique template for the packaging and custom packaging for limited edition copies!!!

some words from Sotos...
"I am happy to announce you that i just released my first solo EP album called ”Odyssey”, including 4 original compositions of mine.
Working on this for the last 6 months, i managed to do the composition, production, recordings and mixing for all the songs at my home studio in Netherlands."

...I think i wrote to much, and as we already know... action is way more than words!

click these and enjoy!!!
