'Friends' is a self initiated project where i decided to create illustrations based around the individual personalities of my close friends. Floppy Toppy centres around Rob, who is a bit of a space cadet and is very interested in existentialism, i used cosmic imagery including rockets, space and clouds to evoke this, I also love the photograph which was taken on an iphone, I think he looks very Dali-esque, the title refers to his 'flock of seagulls' haircut, which was bemusedly described by his barber as "all floppy on the toppy".
'I'm thinking too much' uses a photograph of my very funny friend Russell, it has an element of the sad clown about it which i like, Russell can be very introspective and is a big worrier, hence the message and title of this piece. its a project i intend to build upon adding new images and friends to collection over time. They were created using photography, illustration and typography in Photoshop.
