Recently I was commissioned by The Boston Globe on a beautiful story by Patrick McVay. “Kind of a funny story about death and tax returns” are the author’s memories of his late father who had worked his whole life as a tax collector.
Art direction: Tam Duong.
This is a sneak peek of a project that I have been working on. Stay tuned and celebrate Friday!
My recent project: a bunch of fun illustrations for Sheet Happens, a Stockholm based online store offering face sheet masks produced in Korea. Starting today, Sheet Happens is offering the first European monthly subscription box online. Paula, the founder of SH, asked me for something fresh, bold and fun that she could use both on the website and social media. Feel free to check Sheet Happens’s website here and stay tuned for more illos soon!
Recently I had the pleasure to illustrate cover for WWD (first in 2017!) Tuesday’s Digital Daily. The issue was mostly dedicated to 2017 Look Ahead in the the fashion business. I hit upon a few ideas and the editors picked the illo above as the perfect one for the cover. Below you can have a look at another two ideas that were less lucky (but I still like them!). Thank you Lyanne Natividad for this assignment and also Nick Mrozowski for the art direction.
My little personal project was inspired by many stories that I've heard about how stressful the holiday season can be. So keep calm and celebrate in peace!
My latest work for Variety magazine. I was asked to illustrate for a story that explains the major themes in this year's Oscar race, which are diversity in potential nominees unlike last year's #OscarsSoWhite nominees. I ended up with two ideas, eventually the AD Chuck Kerr decided to move forward with the one above.
My second idea (below) was referring to this great video by Bård Edlund showing the lack of diversity in the previous years in interesting way.
