The awesome folk at Little White Lies, reliable providers of excellently designed publications have gone and published a book with Faber&Faber. Praise for the book is raining down from all the behemoths of internet opinion with glowing reviews from Creative Review, It’s Nice That and even a podcast appearance on Monocle! I couldn’t be more excited to be one of the 50 illustrators and you should definitely buy it if only for the endpapers alone, I promise it’s worth it. Of course there is a really nice website to go along with it and you can educate yourself further on it: whatiloveaboutmovies.com
Always an honour working for the New York Times, this little illustration was for the Letters section in response to an article on World Hunger statistics. The letter observed the importance of peace in the improvement of the situation. You can see the letters here on the New York Times website.
I’m excited to say that version two of my Christmas Jumper card is now for sale at the V&A shop and although I am usually one of the naysayers that will bemoan the early arrival of Christmas I feel like the V&A shop is an honourable exception because it is always festive and worth a visit. Anyway, the cards are red and purple and come with a red envelope and if you’d like some you can also buy them here: V&A shop. Yes!
I’ve added a range of letterpress cards to my Etsy shop including miniature cards printed onto grey paper stock as well as a perpetual birthday calendar printed on bright white paper with a cobalt pigment foil (the colour on this is amazing!) See the items above and more in my shop here: Karolin Schnoor on Etsy.
Here’s a sneak peek into this year’s edition of the German magazine Fokus’ Diabetes Special. So if you have Diabetes, speak German and enjoy colourful illustrations this is THE Magazine for you. I learned a lot about Diabetes on this job so if I should ever get it I feel well prepared. There are perks to being an editorial illustrator, I tell you.
Lisa Congdon, artist and illustrator extraordinaire is the latest collaborator to appear in Meg Mateo Ilasco’s Inc. series. This time around they explore the how to’s around being an artist and I had the privilege of illustrating the chapter openers and spot illustrations as well as creating the cover under the art direction of Meg. The book will be published in August this year and Lisa has just written a blog post about it which you can read here. You can also pre–order the book on Amazon here: amazon.com and this image is a little excerpt. I will post more pictures of the book when I get my hands on a copy!
The German woman’s magazine ‘Myself‘ commissioned me to illustrate a sexy A–Z. I don’t really draw men very often and I was also wary of the fact that the best sex alphabet has already been drawn by Malika Favre of course, check it out here (big fan! Also: NSFW!) so it was a fun challenge. Test your German by seeing if you can match the letters to the word!
Secret7 is a great project that choses 7 tracks each year and presses 100 7″ each, which are then illustrated by artists. The whole show was set up at Mother London and I’m really happy I got to be a part of it this year, alongside amazing artists such as Stanley Donwood, the Chapman brothers and Paul Smith (name drop ziiiing) as well as some of my personal favorites like Matt Dorfman, Jean Jullien and Stevie Gee. I chose Lorde’s track “Team” of course because how could I not? She was after all the only woman in a line up of 22 musicians in all if I’m counting correctly. Yessss always pushing the agenda. Also: it’s a great song! You should listen to it! The remaining sleeves are up for auction on Ebay for another 2 days and mine could be yours! You can bid here: ebay.com
