“The others have always been… Like Niall, for example. He’s the most lovely guy in the world. Happy-go-lucky Irish, no sense of arrogance. And he’s fearless. There are times I’ve thought: ‘I’d have a bit of that.’ Zayn, back in the day. He could relate to me on a nerves level. In the first year we were both the least confident. But Zayn has a fantastic voice and for him it was always about owning that. Liam always had a good stage presence, same as Harry, they’ve both got that ownership. Harry comes across very cool. Liam’s all about getting the crowd going, doing a bit of dancing…”

And then there’s you.

“And then there’s me.”

it’s more than just hiding curses and sigils in between layers of paint (although they do that too). sometimes people think they see something moving within the frame, just out of the corner of their eye. they may not be mistaken.

Exciting new Cape author alert!

New author klaxon! We are incredibly excited to tell you all that Matthew Dooley, who you may remember as the winner of last year’s Cape/Observer/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize, is coming to Cape for his new book Flake!

Flake a story of betrayal, revenge, small-town claustrophobia… and ice cream.

The book is a little while off yet, but if you’re impatient (like we are), you can see more examples of Matthew’s work here.

101, of course, looks much the same when you flip it on its head.

(please note, this isn’t my observation, just my graphic. Others have already pointed this out, on reddit [x] and here on tumblr [x])

anonymous asked:

I was thinking about pursuing graphic design. Do you have any tips about how to go about it? Love your blog btw! \(*^▽^*)/

hello anon! thank you for the kind words ;v;7 i’m glad to see another friend pursuing the wonderful world of graphic design!

here are some tips for general beginners:

learn how to use the adobe suite  ◦ Photoshop, illustrator and InDesign are all important tools as a designer! get a head start and learn how to use these and remember shortcuts and learn different tools! it’s a great kickstarter.

begin by developing a portfolifill your portfolio up with 5-6 bodies of work you’d like to show, your best being the last. fill it up with drawings, digital mock ups, pictures of physical mock ups etc. it’ll be important when applying for colleges/unis

observeobserved different types of  graphic design, type, web design, packaging. keep up with trends and  try to unravel the processes someone took to get there.

accept that failure is there ◦ yup. this is important when pursing design. your first concept will never be your greatest- and tweaking things will lead you to successes!

i’m sorry if this isn’t really sound advice (im in the middle of a terrible cold rn), but here’s some other advice posts i have for design students/people pursing design!

Hi gang, hope to see lots of you at ELCAF over the weekend. We’re bringing tons of great books and some brilliant authors will be signing at our table over the three days… AND we’re having some drinks on our stand on Sunday evening to celebrate the launch of the 2017 Cape/Observer/Comica Graphic Short Story Prize!

Come along, say hi, have a beer and pick up a prize form!
