Wallpaper Magazine's editor at large Henrietta Thompson recently interviewed me in her role as curator of the Brilliant Britain project from Mulberry. To read the full interview please click the link below.
Following on from Angus Hyland of Pentagram and Jonathan Barnbrook in the two previous issue, CA Collection Magazine came round the studio in February and spent an afternoon kindly listening to me ramble on about what I've been up to, a few key projects and what I think about certain things. Now available, the third issue of this recently launched magazine aimed at studios and industry professionals is sporting the 13 page feature nicely interspersed with shots of my studio and key pieces of work.
Not cheap at £15 a pop but it's a hefty tome featuring some great work from a lot of different image makers - definitely something built to keep you going through these rainy days.
I just came across this video with prolific design studio Non-Format via Twitter. The behind the scenes short produced by Adobe takes a look into their working relationship, where the two member live and a handful of their fantastic work. I was over the moon to see one of my collaborations with Non-Format for the exhibition "Now Showing" make an appearance - in the Walker Art Centre no less!
I have nothing but respect for these guys and it was a total honour working with them at such an early stage in my career - a highlight to this day.
Finally back in London and before I begin to tackle the the debris of 2011 and get the studio ship shape and primed for 2012 I thought I'd post about a little interview I did with the guys at It's Nice That about last year. They interviewed 12 people, one for each month, as part of their Year in Review feature.
IT'S NICE THAT
20 years after co-founding Dazed & Confused, last week the first issue of photographer and publisher Rankin's new magazine The Hunger was released. I was asked to collaborate with Rankin on a series of 10 portraits for the launch issue. I was also photographed by the man himself and interviewed for a feature in the mag. Definitely a unique experience going through the whole wardrobe and styling process - especially as I had no idea I was going to be actually filmed for the interview.
Creative Review kindly featured a good chunk of the portraits last week. You can also see some behind the scenes shots of the day I went in for the shoot on the Occupy Blog.
There's a whole host of interviews and short films from the worlds of art, film and fashion on The Hunger Mag's site for you to feast your eyes on and, of course, you can get the magazine itself in all good newsagents now. I'll update my site with the full set of images when it relaunches in the new year. In the mean time I'm looking forward to working again with Rankin on the second issue due out next year.
Ahead of their next show "The Joys of Spring" opening tomorrow evening Outline Editions did a quick interview with me last week on nature and my latent desire to get out of London. Head down to Berwick St over the next few weeks to catch the show - there is a fantastic roster of people with affordable art on show with window graphics by Mr Anthony Burrill.
What seems an age ago now I worked with Non-Format for the very first time (something I was very nervous about) on what evolved to be their award winning series of EP releases for LoAF recordings. Above is my offering. One of the main forces behind the record label, Vincent Oliver, spoke to WeOccupy recently in an interesting and candid interview about how the label began, where it's going and their relationship with the formidable Non-Format. Click the link below to read Vincent in all his glory.
The WeOccupy blog yesterday released an exclusive interview with non other than Mr Dave Kinsey. An insightful, and at times light-hearted, look into his working process, his time off and what he has coming up including a new print dropping sometime today. Definitely a great read and I look forward to more of the same in the future.
