Kiss Kiss Kill Kill Poster Exhibition

So as I was finishing off all my Masters work there was an exhibition on at the Uni called Kiss Kiss Kill Kill:
The Graphic Art and Forgotten Spy Films of Cold War Europe. It had some amazing hand painted graphics and typography so I found a spare few minutes to take some slightly blurry photos of it all.

In other news: I am once again a disappointed Wolves fan. A total of 1 shot off-target on goal and a captain who literally made someone spin arse-over-tit in the air. Pathetic, these posters are good though ay?...

Masters Finished!

So, I've finally finished my Masters and got my life back. That's pretty much the reason the updates on the old bloggage has been so scarce. I really have been working my arse off for the past year as I really wanted to produce a piece of work I could be proud of. Well, it worked as I got my grades back from the last submission and I achieved a 'Distinction'... not just a distinction mind, I got an A1 which means I couldn't get any higher!

You must allow me this small nugget of arrogance with this post. As Amy will testify, I've put a lot of effort into it so it was a major relief and a real boost to the old confidence to see those two characters next to my name.

It'll be a couple more weeks before I hear about the overall grade I achieved for the Masters but I'll be sure to brag about it when I find out.

Life is good at the minute. Amy is getting along swimmingly with her teaching training (GTP), I've got a new job with a digital signage/web design company called Beaver Group, and I'm able to do things like watch TV, play XBox, go down the pub, and read a book that isn't about Graphic Design all guilt free. The flip side to this though is that I realize I haven't had to sit through adverts for about 12 months as the only things I've been watching have been SkyPlussed. Hence I go into a rage when I am forced to hear that bloody Go Compare song.

My front and back door are still leaking as well...
