Vice Versa

The first brief for the Make It In Design (MIID) Winter School 2017 was about
GLAM, theme:  BOHO ROCK.
I found my inspiration in the 70’s rock era, with the colourful music, pop/rock-icons, fashion, movies and sexual/ transsexual/ spiratual lifestyle. I tried to bring back this men and women cross-pollination in my illustration. For that reason I called my pattern VICE VERSA.

(With a special ode to the movie A Clockwork Orange, by Stanley Kubrick and artist Salvador Dalí.)

Intergalantic Worms – the series

Back from holiday! And time to share my last project with you:
Right before my holiday Uppercase Magazine called for submissions for it’s new Surface Pattern Design Guide Vol. 2 book! During the online course, by Lilla Rogers, I already created a pattern design for the cover of this book, as an assignment and contest in cooperation with Uppercase Magazine.

This design I used as my first in a series of repeat patterns to submit. The next five images I created in a very simplistic and analog way, as seen in Julia Rothmans Skillshare class. (Draw on a square paper in the middle to the edges, cut the paper in four, tape them together again in some kind of cross-way, so that the undrawn edges become the middle, and finish/fill up the rest of the paper and colour.)

As I’m also doing the course ‘Make Art That Sells, part B’, I sent in a submission for Uppercase’s editorial assignment as well (click here for the first one).
As an artist or creative you have favorite things to wear, to work in or just to picture yourself in, although you’ll never wear it (e.g. because a lack of money, or inconvenience):

I like to picture myself in a big furry coat with some Marni and Gucci references, with a touch of sweet femininity (the flowers and pastels).
My tattoos, for some reasons they’re all about eyes in some way, had to be in the picture too.  And I’ve also just purchased a very cool blouse with eyes, quite similar to one of my tattoos…. So of course this all had to be a part of my editorial ‘fashion portret’.
I added plants, the night and a strange place too, whereas those are my recurring fascinations in illustrations lately.
