Playing in high rotation of dead air. Listen to ‘Slow Starvation’ on myspace.

This is another hobby of mine, rapping under the name ‘HIDDEN’. I’m starting to wonder if I should go out more. ha ha.

The beginning of my pro skate

Patmore Skateboard-Progress

I’ve always wanted my own pro skateboard, but I was never good enough to be sponsored, so I’m taking matters into my own hands.

I’m going old school on this one, airbrushing, frisking, taping. The prep time and clean up is the longest stages. The airbrushing takes 15 min. But worth every minute. Not sure if anyone has bought airbrush paint in a while. That shit is expensive. My mouth dropped when I got the bill.

Just keep telling myself ‘it’s all for the love of art.”

I may post a few pics of the progress here and there… or I may save it for intwinedesign.com.

13_NEIBW_Oil Painting_Richard Patmore

The oil painting is finally done. Always feels good when another project is completed… and a bit sad to see it go. But I know it will be going to a good home. I just finished taking photos of the painting which I will post on intwine design when I get a chance. Hopefully the site will be getting a bit of an overhaul with a bunch of new work and possible layout.

Here’s a few of the bands I was listening to while painting ‘Not Everything is B&W.’

The Bled

Sole and the Skyrider Band

Stay filthy.

Apophis CD Cover Illustration in progress

12_Apophis CD Cover_Richard Patmore

For the last while I’ve been working on a few projects, here is the beginning of one. This is a pencil illustration for a hip hop group called ‘Apophis’.

The album is called ‘The Theory of De-Evolution’. The idea behind the artwork was taking key lyrics from the album and creating visuals. All together there are 51 separate illustrations in the cover. I just finished it tonight and I can’t wait to add it to intwine design.

Wait till you here the album, it’s amazing. Concept album about everything from the beginning of time till the end.

Here is a preview ‘Apophis on myspace

Ghoulish Gary’s Stag Flyer

Ghoulish Gary's Stag Flyer by Richard Patmore

I’ve known Gary Pullin for over 13 years. He’s a great guy, great friend and an amazing illustrator.

His brother Jay asked me to create a flyer for his stag party. A little bit of pressure for sure.

I had to do something that would pay homage to Gary. I think I did him justice on this one. I researched various photos and illustrations of Gary’s to create this. I even matched the colours Gary uses in his drawings. On all the magazine’s in the flyer, I only recreated the ones that Gary had illustrated.

Nothing was traced, every thing was done in pencil and ink, colour was done in photoshop.

The link to Gary’s site is in my links section.

‘Crosses’ Music Video Poster

Crosses

My wife, Telma Costa, had the opportunity to work on two video’s for Chad Michael Stewart. The first one was ‘Hollow‘, it turned out amazing. I sat there countless nights with her watching clip after clip, throwing ideas back and forth. The second, is a song called ‘Crosses’. The video is still currently in the works, but the trailer was shown in Cineplex’s across Ontario. How cool is that? 

While Telma was working on the video, I wanted to get my hands dirty as well so I created a promo poster for the video. Which lead to an animation bit in the trailer. I have to say it’s great working with my wife on different projects. I think we compliment each other very well.

The image of Chad may change over the course of time, if it does I’ll post the new version.

The same band that asked for The Rep Team logo design (see below) emailed me a few months later to do a logo for their Hip Hop Radio Station. The Missing Link font and monkey illustrations were done by hand and modified in illustrator.

I was asked by a Hip Hop group from Edmonton to do a logo for a music video. Hell Yes!

They asked for a retro style hockey logo that would be printed or embroidered on the jersey’s of the players .

The band is called Touch and Nato, the video is ‘Mom’s In The Stands’. I have no idea if this went anywhere but it was cool to do.

If anyone sees the video please let me know.

New Kokanee Design

I work for a company called JUMP Branding & Design and I had the opportunity to work on the new Kokanee design. Well today I just bought my first one. Looks awesome! Unfortunately I bought a 6 pack of cans and a 12 pack of bottles… when I got the beer, only the cans had the new look. The 12 pack was still the old look. Damn… now I have to drink another 12 delightful, refreshing beers. Ha ha. Now that’s marketing.
