PT 07 - Moon Girl

Phil’s 7th poster – “Moon Girl” – Poppy at the Seven Stories, dressing up.

(Phil): We went to Newcastle to see the lovely Simon Smerdon (Slowraiders) getting married to Stefanie, but as always, when in Newcastle, we always love to visit the Seven Stories (kids’ book museum / exhibition space / shop / amazing place). They always have fantastic displays, exhibitions & interactive stuff for kids of all ages to play with, Poppy was really taken with the Astronaut suit in the Michael Foreman exhibition “Painting with Rainbows” – the photos I took HAD to be used as a poster, so simple & perfect.

If you are ever in Newcastle & love illustration / kids books – PLEASE visit the place, it’s fantastic. There’s also the Ouseburn Farm just round the corner & the Ouseburn Coffee Company which does an AMAZING espresso.

Phil's 1st poster - "42" as he just turned 42 on the 16th June.

Phil’s 1st poster – “42” as he just turned 42 on the 16th June.

(Phil) : My First poster for this challenge. I turned 42 on Tuesday. I always thought about Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – it’s the meaning of life, apparently… This poster took me about 2 hours. I had tried a few earlier attempts, but ended up with this one. I feel this is an “expected” style for me… It’s simple & bold… I will endeavour to experiment & play with different styles & approaches to my poster design over the year.
