Posted by on Dec 11, 2015 in screen printing | Comments Off on New prints for Matchbox in Wellington

This week I´ve created three new prints that will go to Wellington, to the beautiful Matchbox Gallery in Cuba street.  They will be part of an Illustration exhibition that starts on the 15th of December.   They will also show and sell some of the older prints.  Shame I can´t go to the opening, maybe next time! :)

October, inktober

Posted by on Oct 16, 2015 in sketches | Comments Off on October, inktober

I needed some kind of discipline to get back into drawing.  It feels a bit like playing the piano, if you don’t practice you forget your songs…

Inktober is helping me get back into sketching, helping me remember my song.   I’m uploading them to instagram, but here is a thumbnail of all of them. Only day 15… another half to go.

I am really excited about this new project that I am doing in collaboration with my friend and amazing photographer Jose L G Cano.  When I first met him and found out he was a photographer I gave him the hat tree from the costume I had designed for WOW a few years ago in case he wanted to use it for his photos.

Last month he told me he was ready to do a photo session with a model wearing the hat and asked me if I had any ideas.   I created a paper forest which I photographed in different ways… he photographed Laura and later gave me 300 photographs to play with!
This is just the first photograph of the series, I can’t wait to see how the story develops.

A big part of this project is Danny Sugar who is the master photoshop alchemist, fan, tree and horse head holder, leaf spreader…

Also Kung G Cano, who applied invisible make up on Laura and made sure her hair was looking impecable during the photo shoot.
