In 1969, a New York artist called Forrest Myers conspired to hide a tiny ceramic tile with drawings by himself and five other well known artists of the day onto the Apollo 12 Moon Lander.
The artists were: Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, David Novros, Forrest “Frosty” Myers, Claes Oldenburg, and John Chamberlain.
Warhol’s contribution was a drawing of a penis that also functioned as a monogram, consisting of the letters A and W combined.
There was also some grainy photocopies of Playboy centrefolds included by flight engineers in the checklists for the strictly hetero’ astronauts.
Yo, you DJ types with your quaint ‘turning tables’.
Whizz this babsy on the old wheel of aluminium and set the speed control to 14.5% or something…
Feel the noisyness.
I did the stickers – they done the music.
My DJ name is ‘Dong Kappa Chinose’
Buy it here soon…
Hey you Dane band fans…
buy these T-shirts soon here…
Here’s some designs I just recently did for the brand ‘toy tokyo’ – or at least I think that’s what they’re called… They were very nice and they paid up real fast so we are good friends now. Only available in Japanland.
An editorial illustration for Hong Kong’s ‘Milk Magazine’. If you look carefully you can see a single shoe made by a small company called Adidas. They are branching out into right-footed shoes next year. Milk Magazine is the marketing magazine for the Hong Kong Milk Marketing Board and is printed on ‘milk paper’, a bi-product of the dairy industry.
For the forthcoming Soundvenue Magazine No. 41. Soundvenue is Scandinavia’s foremost music magazine sold at a horrendous mark-up in fashiony boutiques and displayed inside a glass case next to the lasercut perspex gun necklaces and other accessories which art students start businesses making.
It’s been a long time coming by my estimation. But the last details are being sorted now… Launch to be announced soon, and prices etc. 170 pages, hundreds of drawings.
I just did this promo CD cover for ‘The World’s Best DJ’ and one of Denmark’s best bands: Turboweekend.
Tiesto even sent me a signed copy. Yowzers!

After I started thinking about designing my own confusing patterns for prototype vehicles, I remembered the obsession with Army camouflage in fashion and design. Probably the most interesting ‘real world’ camouflage is the ‘Dazzle’ system of painted disguise for warships used extensively in the First World War.
I’ve always thought it was pretty cool, and there’s a definite un-remarked upon relationship between the desire to break up the shape of a battleship and the desire to break up the new curves of a yet to be announced motor car. Maybe the car prototype disguisers could learn a thing or two from the dazzle idea.
And Jeff Koons has done an amazing job on some rich person’s yacht too. It’s called the ‘Guilty’.
And last – but definitely not least… Patricia van Lubeck’s scatter patterned car.
‘Give Me My Dream Job’ is part of an ongoing series.
My dream job would be to design a new ‘Artist Decorated’ cake every day for a baker like the one featured in this video. I could draw new designs on the computer and have the bakery do an exhibition of my cake based ‘Limited Edition’. Artist and robots in perfect harmony. Better than doing screenprints.
Art with a shelf life…
This would be me in the shower cap.
So, don’t waste any time robotic cake decorating factories. You’ve got my number, let’s talk cake art.
Here’s some stills and a short clip of some watercolour typography which is animated and also kind of 3D (eat me Avatar). I did keyframes and design while Waverly Films NYC did the actual compositing and After Effects slavery. Thanks for that!
Like Zines and other artists publications?
Nieves is in Tokyo at the moment…

Here it is… the latest lovingly rendered editorial for Scandinavia’s most leatherbound part-work. Lavishly hand-tooled engraving of the hand of the tight-fisted consumer paying for digital music with one hand and taking away with the other…
And yes, it’s drawn by hand. With a pen. Not a Wacom tablet. In fact I’ve always drawn everything single thing I do by hand. Just so you know :)
The new Track Bike Shop.com is opening on Saturday 3rd April at Rantzausgade 2.

OK, this is ‘Give Me My Dream Job’ – a new series of posts on my blog.
In each post I’m going to outline a project I’d like to do, accompanied by reference material stolen from the internet.
This is the first one. Part 01 if you like.

I keep changing my mind about the content and title of a book I’m working on…
Creative time wasting I call it…
The Excellently Twisted Colouring-In Book
135 pages containing 500+ of my darkest black and white drawings.
Redux – that’s a fancy word for redone I think?
These designs were done for Stussy a while ago. I’ve been playing around with them for a while and thought you might like to see the results…
