Thanks for the welcome Olaf :D
I`m glad you like the retro treatment, I`ve a few more sitting around with a few Le Corbussier images worked in along with some varying colours and effects.

Peter Saville`s work has always intrigued and influenced me! Thank feck for software like the adobe stuff. The old fashioned methods only added to the messes I made. I even managed to get some overspray from a spray can onto my old Roland Juno 106 synth. :lol:
That was careless of me.

This is a brilliant thread that`s sure to get the creative juices flowing 8)
I`m really up for bouncing some ideas around on here!

I really liked the last one you put up! My sense of aesthetics sat down, nodded and smiled. Nice work Olaf 8)
Looking forward to seeing those posts you mentioned 8)

Btw, what`s your favourite OMD album art?
That sounds like an idea for a thread :-)

OH WOW!

Those are astonishing Olaf!
My ninja gerbils are no match and have been recalled :lol:

I`ve got one kicking about on my hard drive with light grey lettering. I`ll hunt it down and post it.
Yeah, that`s a good idea. The white OMD would work really well :-)
I`ll try that!
Thanks djpamm30 8) Olaf has kicked my backside with his stuff though.......wonderful work 8)


Hang on..........all these pics would make one helluva calendar!


D`ya think we could persuade Andy? 8)

Ah, an old deltic locomotive in the electric blue colour scheme 8)
I made a model of one those a while ago. I was very reluctant to hand it over to the guy that I made it for :(
I didn`t quite nail the correct blue but at least it looked the part and the client was happy.
