italy

let me clear something: i have been to italy before, but to be honest, i wasnt quite a fan of it. i was at the regular tourist places, venice, verona, garda lake, etc. things people always visit there. i didnt really like those, i mean they are nice, but kind of just “meh”. the people at those places were also more of the uncomfortable kind.
this time i went to italy because of business stuff and an exhibition, only for 2 days. which means i had no connection with the tourist places whatsoever, no tourists, no people tired of tourists, no people living off tourists, no faked beauty, no faked smile.
and this time i fell in love with that country.
i was just falling from one wander to the other, i must have looked like i have never been there, but it really felt like so! it was beautiful, the people were incredibly nice and friendly and warm, the places have seen were like treasure boxes living there untouched for thousand years, the guys were really handsome and lovely, the business went in the philosophy of “lets try to do whats good for everyone”, which i must admit, i havent heard in years. i even started to like the italian language, which kind of hurt my ears before, but now it sounds so lovely and nice! i was repeating words and expressions like a retarded, because i loved how it sounds.
i probably have never drank this many espresso in my entire life either.

i think i have never talked this much about a journey before : D
it just really surprised me so much. i so did not expect this to happen, since i really was just “meh” all about italy, based on my previous experiences, and its quite a challenge to change my mind once i have a personal experience based opinion already, that has built itself up through years and years, and since the times of my childhood. i grew to be the one who will decline to visit milan or rome, because of no interest whatsoever. but now, because i had to, i went, and it flipped me in 180degree in just 2 days. wow.

i was in Nieve and Parma during this time.
i chose a cheap little hotel up in the hills, owned by a family, 4 rooms, warm, with blankets my grandma used to have, a biiiig cat walking around inside laying on you, 3 dogs outside carving for you to rub their belly. felt like staying at home. and when you wake up that view is basically what awaits you and the waking sun. i mean Four Seasons can hide behind this place.

the exhibition was fine. i hoped there would be more of the industrial packaging from the design view (like food packaging exhibition in italy from the design view, are you kidding, i want!), but it was still quite useful. we originally went there because of food processing, factory stuff, robots, machines, packaging from the machines’ view, and this exhibition was exactly about that.

when i mentioned at Sillage that it was inspired by an other illustration which i havent drawn yet.. this illustration was what i was thinking about. the portrait part didnt take that long, the flowers were a killer though. as a result this illustration ended up to be the longest i have spent on drawing. it took about 60 hours. in almost one month period. during which time i got invaded by ladybugs, the reason why i featured them. also this is the longest process film i have uploaded, 5.30mins. and i decided to use my new logo. i used it several times already, not sure if you have noticed, on pictures not fanart related, but i decided to cover everything with it. though i originally was planning to start to use it next year.

Breath In (Detail)

(im quoting one of my replies from youtube: ) i usually explain my arts on my blog, except this time : ) i was sitting over it last night, thinking if i should, but i couldnt quite put into words, and its so messy, i decided everyone should see this illustration the way they want to. — it was inspired in winter, i was waiting for the metro, listening to the song: Breathe In by Japanese Wallpaper. as a small direction to understand the picture in the way i see i can tell that the main line of the song is “Living off your memories”. but since its such a light bound to the inspiration this time i really wanted to let it free, and let everyone understand it the way they want to. the way you guys feel it, personally. and try if it works. : D

PEAK Film Productions, rebranding project, 2014

PEAK Film Productions
rebranding project, 2014

Earlier this year, when I was working at the previous agency, I spent a lot of time at this Production company (eventually even more than at my original agency), learning and assisting. Somewhere along the way I started their rebranding. First of all changing their logo to a new, sophisticated, powerful, crisp design, putting their “digital”, “film production” feel into the logo itself as well. (before and my afters below)

Then I continued with the company identity stuff, business card, website, etc. It was going well, but then I left the agency, and them as well, I kind of got exhausted of everything, and stopped all my ongoing branding projects. Peak was among them, unfortunately.

But couple of months later I saw their new website up, programmed, based on my guidelines and layout. I like it, just how I imagined it. Check it here: peak.hu

I saw their new showreel too, it’s so nice. None of it is my work (unfortunately, I wish I had to do anything with so much awesomeness), but my logo is at the end, and I like how they put that black silk falling down like in a way that if you look at it they are actually mountain peaks. Really nice.

I didn’t share it up till now, because I was waiting for the right time to visit them and photography in some of the identity stuff. Like the business cards. Or their equipment with the logo on it. I left so abruptly, I didn’t have time back then, and most of it wasn’t ready yet.

And now I feel that I won’t go there anytime soon either, so I just decided to share at least these. With having instagram I try to keep my portfolio(-kindofthing) active, and I’m bringing up some of my favourite projects from the past.

wip + autumn + little bat

Breath In wip

so the Breath In fanart is still in progress. the portrait part was finished by last week already. ever since then im engaged with the details. im not sure when i will loose my patience, there is still a lot to be done. not to mention that i have two projects due sunday midnight, both of them requires quite a lot of work from me, and i just want to hide from them, i want the world to leave me alone, i want to draw.

loved this leaf skeleton. its so imperfect, gosh, its beautiful.
there is that saying: “autumn smells like dying”. this leaf makes me remember that.

yesterday eve i was sitting at my computer, when i heard the cat running towards my room, and when she reached it some weird sound came with her. so i looked up and she was trying to catch this bat. when we moved into this house we often had bats coming inside in the night. but there was no more in the past years, and suddenly here we had this little darling. he was soooooo scared. the cat is still small of course, meant totally no harm, no chances of catching him. but he was still so deadly scared.
i called my brother from the other room to come and save me.
at first he was amused, then he hid behind the door himself, i was like “jeez, are you a man or what?” … my little yorkie came for the sound too. now i had a brother hiding behind a door, a bat flying across my room back and forth, and a cat and dog running behind him. and there was me trying to get my camera off the tripod, and adjusting the settings to the night lights so i can film what was happening here. before i could manage to get everything right the bat found my book shelf, and hid behind the books. with my brother we slowly took off the books, my dog at our feet squeaking, trying to climb onto the shelf.
and there was this little cutie, hiding his small head in the small place between the shelf and the wall, with the most certainty that he is protected, and if he cant see us, then we cant see him. nothing could make him think any other way. i was laughing so much, jeez, such a cutie. just look at him.
i grabbed him softly (because turns out i am the man at the house), he started to squeak like a horror-sci-fi sound effect, i think i have never heard them squeak, this was a new experience, and was unexpected. i was screaming with him, while running at the window and letting him free.
i actually like bats, i think they are absolutely adorable.
i just prefer having no actual body contact with them.
