Flyer for Anorak Magazine

Process, with our without line and speech bubble, hmm…)

Today I made this flyer for one of my absolute favourite magazines, ANORAK MAGAZINE, if you aren't familiar with them already then you should definitely check them out!

On July 10th, ANORAK MAGAZINE will be holding a two-hour workshop at YCN in Shoreditch, London, from 6.30 PM where Cathy Olmedillas, the Publisher and Producer of Anorak Magazine will take you through how she launched Anorak and how it evolved from a creative outlet to a business and share some tips on how to get started and also discuss your ideas. Great for anyone who is considering starting their own magazine.

I am on Instagram

I always liked to run around with my camera and to take pictures of everything and nothing and to look at pictures, everything from cities and patterns to illustrations, sketchbooks, buildings and architecture and super styled fashion shots but still used to be a bit skeptic about Instagram, I already have a Twitter, Flickr and Tumblr account, what now? But I am sold and got an account and really enjoy the visual feast on there,  join in!

PS Isn't it a bit scary that Kate Moss is absolutely every where so now it only takes a glimpse of her hand and a bit of her hair to see that it is her even on some ripped posters?

A study of Sports & Leisure

There are definitely too few illustration exhibitions in London, don't you think?

I thought that I should do something about it so last summer I curated "Let's Fika" together with Karin Soderquist and Danijela Dobric, featuring artists like Hanna Melin and Martin Wollerstam at Fika, London.

Now it is time for the next show.

This time I am curating the exhibition and it is all about celebrating character design within contemporary illustration with a added twist, I want everyone to forget about everyday troubles and boredom, politics, triple dip recessions and domestic chores and instead focus on what we love the most, having free time and doing all the things that makes us happy.

And I am very pleased to say that I have some of my absolute favourite illustrators in the show;

Mogu Takahashi

Sarah Ray

Mr Millerchip

Karen Cheung

Danijela Dobric

and I, Asa Wikman

and Mat Pringle are also in the show!
