Quick Graffiti Piece at Prinsenpark, Rotterdam

It's still raining lots outside, but I couldn't resist the itch. I think I just need a little bit of paint on my fingers every couple of days haha. I got out on my own to spray something at Prinsenpark, Rotterdam. The Rotterdam Graffiti scene is on a bit of a hold, especially at Prinsenpark. I saw some nice wall art by Dupes and Mongols though.

Decided to create a gif file because of the poles blocking certain parts of the piece. This way every detail is shown.

Blackbook Graffiti with Stylefile Markers

It feels really weird to say we are already in February, and this is my second graffiti sketch in 2017. May be that's because I'm more into concepts lately? Who knows... For a daily peak into my life, follow my instagram @seckthewriter.

Anyways, this is the most developed sketch I've made in 2017 so far for sure. I saw lots of sketches on the internet which follow an 'oval' shape, which means that the letter's on either sides are the smallest. That's why I sketched an oval shape in my concept. Just to fit my letters in. What do you think?

The Honing Tripel Beerlabel Design

The beer label I created back in 2012 

..for my uncle's homebrew beer 'Honing Tripel'. A heavy hopped blonde beer with a touch of honey, to dream away with on a saturday evening. This is as short as I could describe it. My whole family consists of beer lovers, and with the knowledge my uncle has from his years as a medicine maker, he started brewing specialty beers way before I was born.

This whole story intrigues me to this day. The way he chooses his hop, the way he writes down his recipe, the way he drinks his beer & refines those recipes, again and again. The passion is just always there. That is why, back in 2012 after a year in design school, the creative me decided to get into Photoshop and Illustrator to create the best beer label I had ever seen. I wanted to show him I got the same passion, but in an other profession.

2017 - Turning the old design into something new

But... After almost 5 years, finishing design school, the brewery getting the name Anselmus & me starting Seck Design, I felt that the old design from 2012 was becoming outdated. I got out of bed at 4 am midnight, and started building the whole thing up once again - from scratch.

What I heard in school a lot (and what you can easily see in my older work) was that my artwork was way overpowered. 'Less is more' is what they told me. And when I open one of my older artbooks or look at older work, I cannot deny it. I learned a lot from that one sentence.

This quest is to be continued. We need to find an appropriate printing method for the new design, because it is transparent. Interesting.

This is a concept we are working on. A mock up is shown below, with the old design (left) and the new one (right).

Retro Game Sticker Design

I'm from 1994, so I basically grew up with my older niece playing the MS Dos game Duke Nukem 3D. That stuff was my childhood, I only have to read a sentence from the game series and I automatically read it in Duke's voice. 'It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum, but im all out of gum...'

The whole Duke Nukem story is too long to tell you in this post, because I want to keep it short. But the whole superhero type character Duke is, is perfect to combine with graffiti. So I did! I got rid of all weapons and chose other tools for him to work with. 'Ahhh... Much better!'

The sketch was first scanned into illustrator, then colored in photoshop, and printed by Flyeralarm. I'm down to trade so come get some!

Graffiti with a Wild West Feel

New day new style at Capelsebrug ft. Blob. After a (another) quick paintsession yesterday at Alphen a/d Rijn, we got to action once again to empty our cans. This one has a kind of western feel to it, I really like how it came out.
