Big Questions.
posted:
Just a quick post to share my work for Mental Floss.  As a long-time fan of the magazine, I  was delighted to be asked to create the cover artwork for their Big Questions issue.
If anyone could provide the answer to my big question that would be awesome!
An Illustrated Interview
posted:
I was recently invited to illustrate my answers to 10 questions by Kollektiv Gallery in Brighton, UK.
 
You can see how some other artists have responded online here.

And here are my answers...
 
1. If you had the power to create a new animal, what would it look like? (left)
2. What does magic hour look like in your eyes?
3. Please set your alarm for 5 in the morning and create something visual.
4. Draw us what is in front of your eyes right…….. now
5. What would the male version of you be drawing?
6. Have you ever made art that’s too weird for public eyes?
7. Create your version of a strange tropical land filled with cats?
8. Please draw a portrait of me, even though we have not met.
9. Teach us something about yourself.
10. Where can we find more of your work?
Abbonati!

One of the perks of creating hand-lettering is pretending that you are fluent in other languages. (I am not.)
 
I was recently commissioned by Internazionale magazine in Italy to create some artwork for their subscription postcard - the kind that gets stapled into the magazine and which sadly, I usually ignore.
 
Internazionale, if you haven't come across it on an international newsstand, compiles stories from the international press and regularly features some great cover artwork. A lot of smart solutions by Noma Bar are featured here on Cover Junkie: http://www.coverjunkie.com/magazines/390
 
It was a pretty straight forward job and a fun one as I was given the text and a simple brief to come up with something bright and eye-catching.
 
Here are my roughs and the finished artwork.
 
SKETCHES:
(I don't always send so many roughs, but this was a fun one come up with options for.)
FINAL ARTWORK:
At least, I now know the italian for Ipad and Smart Phone!
Sketchbook Drawings
posted:
I'm been trying to spend less time at the computer and make more time for daily drawing in my sketchbook.  It just doesn't seem to happen unless I make a deliberate effort so I've been doing a half hour or so of doodling each morning before turning on my phone/computer and checking email.
Here are some of my recent sketchbook pages.  No lettering, mostly character stuff...
Thanks for looking!
