Talor&Jørgen

I was recently commissioned by Oslo, Norway based design studio Bielke&Yang to create brand illustrations for a coffee packaging for the specialty coffee roaster Talor&Jørgen. It was a dream project to work on and I'm happy that the illustrations have been very well received. You can read a review of the project here

That Should Be a Word

For the past couple of months I have been working on the illustrations for "That Should Be a Word", a book that is based on the popular column written by Lizzie Skurnick that originally appeared on the pages of The New York Times Magazine.

I created 50 pieces of 2-colour illustrations for the book including illustrative lettering for the chapter openers. The book is soon to be published by Workman Publishing, New York. The official launch date is set for the 7th of April 2015.

There's more information available on the publishers website where you can also preorder the book by following the links posted there: http://www.workman.com/products/9780761182689/

I'll post some teaser images from it closer to the April launch date!
