Make me Beauty Fool

photoshopped model

This video by Jesse Rosten really kicks the beauty industry in the rubber parts, spelling it out in plain old pixels. With the right software you can digitally revise just about anything. It seems to be quite a serious issue, giving people impossible standards of beauty, but when you get to ‘adjust your race’ you really start to worry. I’d just like to say I’ve never used Photoshop – sorry Fotoshop to make anyone look better. But I might have used it to make them look worse!
 
Pause the video at 1:00 to compare the model with the image above, which I Photoshopped heavily. Couldn’t resist it. Sorry.

Art From Mark – Fun With Photoshop

Northern Flower shop digital painting the vibesThis is a digital painting I did based on a very dull photograph of a little flower shop in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. To see how the picture was transformed, check out the original here.

This was my first attempt at a magazine cover, which was an assignment for OutNorthWest Magazine in Manchester. My brief was to provide a bright, uplifting image to inspire people and increase readership. I went for warm summer colours and a radiant, aspirational character, based on a photograph of a real person. Part of my inspiration was the Hed Kandi CD covers, and I think I managed to inject some pop culture into the image, because circulation spiked immediately: it was the most successful issue to date. Inset is the printed cover. I’ll be posting more magazine covers soon, but first:

singing cat

Regular readers may recognise this image from my blog header. It’s Sparky, my ginger cat taken from a photograph of him singing. He was more than likely yawning, but singing sounds better. The original image can be seen in a forthcoming post about this handsome ginger tom in December.

Art Deco Dalek Photoshop

There was some speculation a few years ago that the Daleks would be redesigned in the style of the 1920s. Noticing that the original Dalek already had a bit of a retro-industrial look to it, I designed the Art Deco Dalek, just for fun. Using an original 1960s movie Dalek as a base, I incorporated elements from chrome radios, toasters and glass valves – thank Buddha for Google Images.

Psychedelic CD Cover

This is my psychedelic CD cover for a compilation I did for friends called Far Out. It shows a Ganesh-type figure holding a Sonic Screwdriver (from Doctor Who,) a Mars Bar and an iPhone. I’ve noticed a have a radial style to a lot of my artwork, and rather than admit to being repetitive, I’m embracing it as my unique signature.

Panos Photoshop

This is Panos, taken from a photograph and processed in the same style as the magazine cover above.

Barberella Barbers Manchester Poster

My friend Nikie wanted to raise her profile, so I designed this poster for her, using elements from her well-establshed barber shop in Manchester.

Here is another friend of mine, recreated in Photoshop.

This was made as part of a series of still images for an animation which I included in a Goldfrapp video. You can see the eye blinking here in the Goldfrapp Live! video.

Gay Wedding Picture

And finally, my friends got married and as a big surprise, I did a huge ‘Gilbert and George’-style canvas which I gave them to blast away any nerves just before the ceremony. The canvas now hangs in pride of place in their hallway, and creates quite a stir for new guests as they come through the door.

More fun with iPhone and Photoshop


This is my bedside table lamp, fed through a kaleidoscope app and then ‘shopped. Called it Blue Volts, because it looks a bit electrical. Continue reading

Cheshire Plains Again.


It’s nearly-not-quite summer! I’m a bit late with the window boxes, but I finally got to go to the garden centres of sunny Cheshire. I can’t pronounce the name of these ones, so we’ll call them ‘Yellow Flowers.’ No good at latin. Continue reading
