Geode

I’ve been re-hashing some old drawings of cranes and planes to try and make snazzy new business cards for Acies Co, but I’m struggling to find a design that is striking and minimal at the same time. I love the interconnecting lines on this one and the asymmetry.

Alongside mustard, teal is another favourite colour, it’s cold and warm simultaneously and is used far too little!

Acies Sigil

I always sign off my drawings with a little mark, and to be honest I usually edit it out when it’s all finished, but it’s a therapeutic ‘yes I am happy with this’ act to scratch in my initial. In my pieces for my unisex clothing brand, Acies Co, all apparel has a tiny sigil, a branding that shows its been hand-made. In this drawing I played around with colour, and surprise, surprise used mustard as a backdrop. The sigil came from a drawing class in which I was told I was ‘uptight’, I had to create something that represented my energy is a single mark. This angular form represents my stressed and anxious self, and although not abstract or expressive it really does sum me up!
