C84 Series by lee25 C84 Series by lee25
This piece came about as I was starring at the stack of empty ink cartridges on my window, as much as I love the print quality of my printer it irritates me how quickly it gets through these cartridges. So I made a piece about it.

The direction and style that im going through has been something i've wanted to do for a long time, but its dificult to change direction on here when your known for something else. The style is influenced by some of my favourite designers such as Michael Place and designgraghik.com

While I realise this is'nt every ones cup of tea, please respect the fact that this is my page and its what i want to do. thankyou.

I really know how you feel about those cartridges! $30 every time they are done, better get a continuous ink system (CIS) from neverendingink.com! (I almost seem like a spammer dont I?) I love the quality of my c45 but it's bloody SLOW and asks me to change the cartridges every month! Anyway -....- you should consider it, you'll forget about ink for at least a year XD

I like how simple it is. The jagged breaking off on the left adds a nice touch.

Yeah printers r a real dick. DesignGraphik is V Young btw. One of my favs but his style is lacking now a days I feel. His old stuff he used 2 do for computer arts was real something.
I like this peice. The colour mix with the inks is really clever. The fact u work with the cmyk spectrum. Anyway :S
Hey u live near Brimingham right?
U should check out the custard factor :D some kool stuff there u might like. Like Beat 13 :D

Yeah, there are so mnay things that i hate about printers and the industry. Top peeve: running out of blue, but want to print a black document...printer says no... argh!!

I'd love to have my own A3 inkjet, then again the running costs would be so high.

I've only recently been introduced to design graphik, a mate of mine sent me some images from their sites.

Custard factor? ive gotta look that up, thanks for the pointers.

It's great that you're trying out a new style. Change of direction is always a good thing. :thumbsup:
Frankly this work is nice and simple and the concept is well executed. Haha, you even have the "Epson colours" there. ;)
I read from a previous comment that you have an Epson. Epson love forever! :D

very cool, nice simple design and great colour. The gradients however make it look a bit soft, solid colours or less evident gradients could make it bit smoother yet powerful, but awesome work i love it
