Hope you've got this Thursday night saved for our first ever Slumber Party at Lamington Drive. While we probably will kick you out before the night owl settles in to roost for the evening, we'll have the frankly incredible artwork of our four live-in residents on show and free lamingtons as fresh as their faces. We are really, really excited about this being the first of many Lamington Drive artist residency shows and it won't be a party without you there. Nah'mean? Now get your art on quick smart with these links of awesomeness by insulin, insomnia and caffeine reliant champions. Craig & Karl knocked up a juicy cover for Monument Magazine, Alex Trochut put a neon animal print border around Katy Perry, Luke Lucas gave the typographic treatment to wild deer, and Karl Kwasny reminded us that the big question in life is 2B or not 2B for Staedtler Pencils. Phew! See you Thursday or on the flipside. Love always - jw.
Over the past month, four impressionable young illustrators have been working hard at Lamington Drive. For Ashley Ronning, Emi Ueoka, Sarah McNeil and Sophie Blackhall-Cain, the illustrator-in-residence crown is not one to be worn lightly. They have given Lamington Drive a winter makeover - transforming it into a working studio and a second home. You are cordially invited to their end-of-residency Slumber Party. Bear witness to the incredible talent of Ashley, Emi, Sarah and Sophie, sample several flavours of washi tape, and sniff the coloured textas collected in jam jars. BYO jelly snakes.
Alex Trochut is the designer and illustrator responsible for the fierce typography and tigerish layout for Katy Perry’s new single, Roar. The hotly anticipated single represents a stylistic overhaul for Perry, who wanted a look poised somewhere between urban and pop, with each individual letter treated as if it were a piece of jewellery. Alex’s sophisticated lettering with its rainbow mineral bling and hard golden crust certainly fulfils the bill. We want that neon animal print border fitted around our lives.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, Monument Magazine commissioned Craig & Karl to knock up an extra juicy cover that would double as a collector’s edition. The boys decided to create a faux sculptural installation that formed the numbers 2 and 0. Working with 3D artist Ebony Fleur to transform their vector layout into a 3D model, Craig & Karl played around with materials and textures before refining the elements of light and shadow. Phwoar.
