You can now order ‘Fresh and Easy’, by Jane Hornby, from the Phaidon store! I illustrated the cover and the chapter openers for each section. The cookbook is dedicated to simple recipes using the freshest seasonal produce, and I for one can highly recommend this as a treat for the eyes and the belly! Buy! buy! buy!
Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin: I was commissioned by Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin to illustrate several articles for their special issue about eating, focusing on the slow food movement, the cultivation of old seed varieties, the ethics of meat production and Jonathon Safran Foer’s book ‘Eating Animals’. I am so very chuffed with how the issue looks, it’s just a shame I have forgotten all my German because I would have liked to have read the articles. Perhaps Nadja would like to translate it for me??
This is just a wee peak at a flyer for Hartwig’s new musical endeavour. It’s not set yet, but I just wanted to share it. This mere two-part pile pales in comparison to the stacks and stacks of amps and things of the soundsystems scattered around carnival. It is just a wee homage.
Lovely Ben is screenprinting up a poster series of the boxers… This is just a sneak peak of the first colour but I’m very excited at how well the pencil and paint transfer to a screenprint… and then there will be overprints and rich colours and all that jazz.
This is just a little unused sneak peak from a project I just finished for a lovely new fashion start-up in new york. I have to admit I was quite chuffed with the lovely legs and arms on this mock-up that come from an old paper sculpture I made. Doesn’t she look chic? Even with her hint of a creepy ceramic face.
Some photoshop skills. I know I should already know these little things, they seem so simple. Like changing the colours of black and white line drawings, which I could do but terribly badly. A whole host of possibilities has opened up to me now and a feeling of being a little more professional than before. Above is a sketch from a project I am playing with.
Please accept my apology for not posting something of note recently. I have been feeling under the weather all week and a lack of interest/ concentration has not helped. However I did listen to more WNYCs Radiolab, they are brilliant and if you have not already then I highly recommend subscribing to their podcast. I was particularly enamored with the show on time and the many concepts of it. At the moment I am working with a Danish man, Kristian Bakkegaard Andersen. I am quite excited about the project and hopefully I will be able to show you all what I have been doing soon. But for now it’s just words I’m afraid. This is a page from my sketchbook.
