Sir Peter Cook is an iconic British architect, founder of Archigram and former director of the ICA.
I am involved in an exhibition along with 74 other illustrators to commemorate his birthday. Each illustrator was invited to create a portrait of Sir Peter, which all will be auctioned for the charity Architecture For Humanity. My contribution, which you can see above, is a screen print.
'75 Peters' is curated by the Adam and Eve Project in partnership with Sir Peter and begins on 26th October in Brisbane- details above. As you can see the line up for the show is fantastic with some brilliant illustrators: Mike Perry, Andrew Rae and Ian Wright among many many more involved.
All the artworks in the exhibition can be very soon viewed here: http://theadamandeveprojects.com/75peters - the online auction will also take place here starting 26th October.

Earlier this year I was approached by the German musician Haushcka to create an image for his forthcoming album 'Pan Tone'. It was Released last month by Berlin record label Sonic Pieces: a label which focuses on releasing handmade and limited edition CDs and EPs.
The album is a musical collaboration between Haushcka, an experimental pianist and Hildur Guðnadóttir an Icelandic cellist, and was originally
Each composition is named after a different Pantone colour, each a different colour of the sea, and so the design of the EP and illustration follow in this theme. I produced an illustration for the inlay using only two of the Pantone colours from the album, plus black. The image is inspired by the Leviathan sea monster myth.
There is a limited number of the EP and CDs, each embossed and numbered, hand bound and beautifully designed by Sonic Pieces.
Grey Magazine is an biannual fashion Magazine. It's 5th issue for AW11/12 is out now, and I was asked to create two illustrations to accompany a collection of poems by JM Parham themed around London, seen here above.
I will always love working for magazines like Grey- aside from it's design, it combines literature, fashion and illustration in such an innovative way.
I have posted some photos of the issue below just because I was so impressed with the quality of imagery featured. For me the stand-out features are a fantastic photographic story by Todd Hido about the New York public library, and Julie Verhoeven's contribution, both of which are artists I hugely admire.
