Some work for Berlin based iCrates magazine. Their illustrators share the same deadline as the writers so for the top image all I had to work with was 'it's for the protest issue, like, female jazz protest songs'. The ambiguity was terrifying and I overcompensated with whole days on wikipedia while listening to obscure jazz podcasts and then didn't spend as much time on the drawing as I'd have liked. I was also working on it just after Christmas so I probably had stuffing/xmas pud for 5 meals straight in my pajamas. If we were supposed to hang out and I said I was too busy, now you know the truth.
For the second one I got 'space issue: a piece on the evolution of Ziggy Stardust'. I know what you're thinking. No.
My Montague Two zines are now stocked at Motto Berlin, wunderbar.
(Or rather, have been since September, errrr..)
I've been up to my ears in exciting new projects and a lot of drawing but I really miss collage. 2012, year of the scrapbook filled with good intentions?
I also have some bits stocked at super ace new Neukölln gallery, idrawalot but more on this later.
This suitably gruesome effort is the poor old Black Dahlia and was drawn for a pal over at The Crime Jazz Unit. CJU busts out superior podcasts every few weeks, heavy with prime crime cuts: strange tales of vice, lawlessness and idiocy, plus helpful criminal do's and don'ts set to an excellent sleazygoing noir beat soundtrack. I drew the banner on their site.
Here's a link to the first episode, more this way.
Mmm track 7, Beat Girl...
