A combination of my trip to a contemporary art museum in Brussels, an architecture degree show and a growing passion for electronics.
I had a canvas and I wanted to make acrylic look like it’s watercolour.
Due to some randomness in the world my deer design adorns a really nice Christmas tree which is just outside 10 Downing street.
Not that I will ever see it but I am still chuffed.
All to celebrate International Year of Light. More info here.
Photography by John O’Brien. Made possible and manufactured with a lot of attention to detail by Peter Phillipson.
While Daily mail thinks that muntjac deer are threat to our wildlife, I was asked kindly to draw one based on an old memory of meeting one.
Originating from South-East China and Taiwan, they were introduced in the UK in the beginning of the 20th century and since then became one of the most populous deer found in England.
One of the most inspiring lectures I’ve been to recently http://bartlettplexus.com
I was quite intrigued by the choice of speakers and the atmosphere was very open – Bartlett, my love.
Did a quick sketch there while Andy Lomas was explaining his methods of creating synthetic aesthetics mimicking organic forms.
We’ve been talking about this for a while and finally – my deer are hanging at my favourite cafe in London – Scandinavian kitchen.
They are free to view and surrounded by lovely people and buns throughout April and maybe a bit beyond – pop by if you’re around!
There are some opportunities which you shouldn’t miss and when Roman Sablin posted a call for an illustrator for his new book I couldn’t ignore it.
The book is published by a Russian eco publishing house Zelenaya kniga and is written as a motivation to review our lifestyles and aim for more ethical and respectful to the environment everyday.
I had great time drawing a picture for each chapter and proud to support the movement in Russia at least in this way.
One of my main passions in professional sense is actually lighting design (you’d think deer, wouldn’t you?). Yet I am not employed as a lighting designer yet which combined with Goldsmiths education makes me do some weird things.
This is a deer for a lighting designer who I met at a lighting design party. We had a conversation involving deer, Eames chairs and my crazy CV.
