Twenty-Seven Names

thanks to lisa for making me aware of new zealand label twenty-seven names & their rad winter 2012 lookbook.

their portraits project is pretty gorgeous, too.

Wil Freeborn

i will always remember my illustration lecturer at university telling us repeatedly that the best illustrators and comic book artists always had their sketchbook with them, and were always drawing. any spare moment was spent observing, sketching and perfecting their craft. that is of course completely true and a philosophy that certainly applies to any skill.

so i was immediately taken back to that classroom when i saw the pages of Wil Freeborn’s incredible sketchbooks. had mixed feelings of admiration and jealousy when browsing through these – what a talent.

frock

the frock collection by anja louise verdugoPainted clothing, mostly from the 20′s and 30′s, based on ebay photos of things I couldn’t buy. An upgrade from the low-quality ebay photos, and a way to have these items without actually owning the frocks.
