Personal Pieces

Recently I have been doing a few mini projects simply to amuse myself.

These have been in the form of general day to day stuff, inspired by things I am interested in, for example:

Aperture Bin Day Instructional Poster.

For those of you who play Portal, you will know about Aperture, for those of you who do not, Aperture Laboratories is a slightly mad happy-go-lucky fictional company created for the game Portal.

For the release of Portal 1 and 2 they released short animations showing how the company's products work.

As a sort of tribute I created an Aperture themed sign for my household and our brand new recycling bin.

Assassin's Creed: The Secret Crusade Bookmark.

Assassin's Creed is another game that I absolutely love, and recently a book has been released telling the full story of the protagonist in the first game; Altaïr Ibn-La Ahad.

Upon getting The Secret Crusade I decided to design and make a simple Altaïr themed bookmark to use while reading the book, and opted for one of his classic in-game perching poses.

This is still currently a work in progress, I have more work to do on his hands and may add his sword... plus I hope to make the final one have the back of his clothing actually drape over the page to make it a bit more dynamic.

So, that's all for now, but more will undoubtably be here soon!
