LOOKING FORWARD.

This is a new logo I just finished for my friend Peggy O’Leary. She has started a new comedy night, and wanted a logo that could be used a sticker, and overall make people think, what could that be for? The logo is inspired by emoticons, as a representation of the many emotions comedians and their audiences go through. And with a limited budget, I stuck to black and white. I chose to take a step back, and have them hopefully garner the response for the right reasons.

KICKING IT BACK OFF.








Now that the holidays are over, I have returned to a some-what normal routine. In the next few days I will post some sketches and the like from some newer projects I have been working on (trying to at least.)


Happy New Year.

GHOST TOWN.

This blog has been one!

can you feel it? I have been M.I.A, with out the success though. Please forgive me, not only have the posts been less visual, and more critical, if that. I have just damn near seemed to of given up!

Not true!

The holidays are here, and I have been fully entrenched in my website building, on a personal basis. A one sided relationship it continues to be. I have shown myself, though, more things in the past week. then I ever thought I could in dear ol’ dreamweaver. Now I know why they call it so.

Three more televisions met their  maker, and therefor came home with me. If only I could get outside to spray them white and not get sprayed myself. It is too cold and wet. A shame. I am working on 3 new pieces though, another diptyque along with one large one.

With the exception of a few. you all did let me down, with a call to arms. Or memories. Please do e-mail. Please.

Been working hard on these things, among others:

-my website

-finding a job

-a zine / art book

-a couple of logos

-new pieces

*and first and foremost ideas for the DWR window display.

With all of this said. it is the holidays. And I am out of town. I wish everyone a happy _________. When the holidays are up, I will be posting more, and more visually too! Promised.




Cheers

—James

A SIXTY SECOND SPOT, AT LEAST.

I would like to ask everyone for a minute of their time, to tell me about a time. A time when you felt so connected to something you saw on television. It can be anything, any moment, public, private, sad, happy, funny, whatever it may be. You name it, I want to know about it. Please e-mail me at james@jameslawrencehughes.com or leave a comment below (if you prefer to stay anonymous.)


(I remember waking up at 5 a.m. to get off to school as a young man, all the while watching Princess Diana’s very public funeral procession on the tube. I still remember how a card scripted with “Mummy” sat on one of many floral arrangements atop her casket.)

SOME MORE OF THAT “OLDER” WORK.

This Mural was a take on contemporary community murals. It pulls from the positives and negatives from a community (the section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, in which I used to live.) While trying to make light of a problem in a positive and fun, heartfelt manner. The mural was up for roughly 4 months, or until the construction crew had finished the new building that was going up at the site.
