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.
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.
‘Give Me My Dream Job’ is part of an ongoing series.
My Dream Job would be designing the camoflague patterns for new car prototypes. The existing ones are crappy boring. Come on now I mean – look at these poor examples. It’s a wasted opportunity. At the moment it’s all ‘wiggly worms’, bad spandex disco pants etc.
So, come on car companies, you need a professional image maker on this one… the ball is in your court. My phone number is on the sidebar.
Make that call.
Here’s some of mine – in association with Ben Wilson Design.
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…
Of course you hate Dolphins – they are workshy leftists. But did you know you can eat your way to Victory?
This guide – screenprinted in a limited edition of 50 prints – can show you how to butcher the fishy snack carcass.
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 :)
I’m painting the walls of the new ‘Track Bike Shop.com’ in Copenhagen. Opening party to be announced soon. Probably around the end of March. And I have a very helpful and generous assistant, Kati Szi, a student from the Copenhagen Design School. Some of these photos are by her too…
