Author Portraits - Hunter S. Thompson



What I've Been Doing...

It's been a manic few months.

I've recently started work as a Graphic Design tutor at 2 separate colleges in the UK, which is really exciting. As a result, I've been quiet on the freelance side of things while waiting for the dust to settle. 

Here's a few personal things I've been working on to keep in practice, there'll be more commission work I'll release later in the year, but hopefully this is enough filler for the time being...







CULT CINEMA SUNDAY - The Monster Squad


To celebrate Cult Cinema Sunday's 2014 Halloween Mystery Movie Screening I was commissioned to produce a print for the almighty creature feature that is Monster Squad!

I'm writing for a blog...





I'm currently writing artist features for The Roots of Creativity. I'm sticking with an article every Monday and Friday and have already lined up more interviews over the coming weeks.

If you're interested in a feature, get in touch via jfenwick-art@live.co.uk.

Episode 3 - Jake Machen

Episode 4 - Caitlin McEvoy

Give Roots a follow over on their Facebook page for future articles and updates.

TALENTHOUSE - Lindsey Sterling Tour Poster


I had a few free days waiting for client feedback a couple of weeks ago and decided to enter a Talenthouse comp. Because why not. 

I haven't entered a competition for years, part of me disagrees with the ethics involved (ie. voting systems, "doing it for the likes") but I had a concept and took a stab at it. Judging is now on so hopefully I've got a chance at the final commission.

2014 Open Portrait Session


 Last year I decided to make an annual limited giveaway where people send me mugshots and get a free illustrated portrait. I'd highly recommend doing this if you're a designer/illustrator as it's a great way to vary your portfolio and try something different. 

I always have loads of fun working on them, and it's great sending them back to the people involved.












Huge thank you to Joward and Geena, Sally, Lori, Kayleigh and Emma (and James ;) ) for getting involved. 


WHISKEY KINGS


Quick design I worked on whilst waiting for client feedback. All it took was a drunk chat with fellow whiskey lovers in a pub until we decided we needed a logo. 

It's up for grabs, if you're interested email jfenwick-art@live.co.uk to discuss pricing/licensing. Text is placeholder.

Hearts Alive


I've been working on this piece in-between travelling around the country and working on commissions this summer. I've wanted to get something nautical done for a while, and after spending weeks near the sea it's kind of spurred me on. I might work on a series based around this theme, who knows, it depends how much down time I get. 

Now to add colour.   

CULT CINEMA SUNDAY - Bill & Ted's Excellent Adeventure


More work for Cult Cinema Sunday. Prints available over on their store

Hero Complex Gallery - I Am The Law / A Life of Crome Exhibition


I recently contributed to Hero Complex's recent "I Am The Law / A Life of Crime" exhibition, celebrating figures of authority and/or criminal intentions in film. I chose "Filth" (Lionsgate) purely because it's one of the best British films I've seen in the past year and is one of my favourite pieces of literature.

I feel honoured to be asked to exhibit with HCG as a lot of my own design heroes have worked for previous shows. Thanks to Adam and the HCG crew for giving me the hook up.

BBC FOCUS - Hollywood Science editorial





I recently completed an editorial piece for BBC Focus based on the movie Her. As a movie nerd,
this was incredibly fun to work on.
