This Online Portfolio is dedicated to My Dad who passed away January 2012. The majority of the development was complete whilst helping renovate his house in Spain. There will always be a special place in my heart for you. You are my inspiration.
You Will Never Walk Alone Dad.
Sketchbook / Canvas
A collection of my sketchbook and canvas work from 1991-1995 which i have scanned in and presented in a digital format. I wanted to showcase this work as it is where my creative career started and i believe that any good design starts on paper. None of this work has been manipulated using any computer applications apart from increasing contrast to display the faded media and cropping to fit within the website layout.
Various acrylic paintings inluding ink press work and pieces inspired by the famous artist Giacometti.
Hand drawn pieces and design sheets using fountain pen ink, magic markers and felt tip pens.
Pieces created using a mixture of media. This includes a circular piece entitled THE ORB. This was etched into a painted piece of 6 foot diameter fomex. I later came to exhibit this work at a local art gallery and sold a framed printed version of the work.
Pencil sketches mainly drawn in a 'scribble' style which i used for the majority of my sketchbook work.
Photographs taken using a black and white Canon camera and all developed in a dark room. Digital photography didnt exist at the time!

video / audio
The playlist below is a collection of mixes and tracks i have produced. The mixes were produced back in the 90's using Technics 1210 vinyl decks. I have digitised them from cassette and made available for your aural pleasure! The tracks are recent productions using Ableton Live. Why not start some music and browse the rest of my website...the audio will continue to play ;)
Coming Soon...These videos i have produced myself using Adobe Premiere. The players run using HTML5 and use various different video formats for browser compatibility. For a full list of the latest HTML 5 standards visit my blog www.collinscreative.co.uk/wordpress
