This was a really exciting project to work on, especially since I’m a big fan of the idea behind Creative Mornings, a series of free (yes, FREE!) talks on Friday mornings that give you doses of inspiring design alongside coffee and breakfast food. A match made in heaven if you ask me. Guests are consistently great, for instance feast your eyes on Milton Glaser’s talk from 2011 here. It also doesn’t hurt that Sally Rumble and Tina Roth Eisenberg ( Swiss Miss! Eurgh…fan crush) were lovely art directors and very nice to work with. So here’s my drawing for June’s theme: food. See if there’s events in your area on the site here.
I just finished printing a small series of screenprints for the upcoming TOAST festival which will be held at the Red Gallery in Old Street. It’s food themed so I drew my favorite thing: grumpy girls. I also put them on some fruit. Here’s a preview and you can see them all at the festival on June 1 & 2. The event is raising funds for food charity Action Against Hunger and you can find out more here.
Last year I had the pleasure of illustrating a booklet for the IAAF which they were producing for an event they were holding for all gold medal winners of the 2012 Olympics. So…while I am not saying that I have proof that Usain Bolt himself has admired these drawings and thought they were awesome, it’s totally possible. Art direction by Studio Mikey for North&One.
Each issue of Wrap seems to be better than the last and I’m really excited to be included in Nr. 7 which is all about collaboration and features kick–ass work by collectives such as Peep Show, Hvass & Hannibal, Golden Cosmos and many more. I illustrated the Big Question section. You can get your hands on this issue in their shop here.
