Sunscreened, sandalled, swatting at pesky flies: that's us in summer. Welcome to this week's Peter-Peter which is as full of cool stuff as a secondary school hat rack and twice as likely to protect you from sunburn. Eirian Chapman played guest illustrator for über-cool bridal mag Hitched, James Fosdike immortalised Wil Anderson wearing one thong and one Doc Marten, and Kelly Thompson's work for Escada increased our thirst for piña coladas. Daniel Boud shared his photos from MOFO, James Gulliver Hancock made beauty kits look artistic and sassy, and Matt Huynh invited you all to his comic book launch this Wednesday. That's it for now - class dismissed. Love always - jw.
How unbelievably gorgeous is Kelly Thompson's work for Escada's 'Born In Paradise'? We strongly recommend you hop on over to Kelly's site and read her blog entries about the creative process - highly informative and hugely inspiring. Smells like winning to us.
James Gulliver Hancock for ULTA
Feb 03, 2014 02:09 pm
James Gulliver Hancock collaborated with US beauty retailer ULTA to design six limited edition kits for bareMinerals. That means you can get a cute kit with a sassy name and a JGH original printed all over it – choose between Beauty Obsessed, Kiss Me It’s My Birthday, Hello Jetsetter, I Do, Fit & Fabulous and One Hot Mama. Pretty awesome.
Daniel Boud was recently invited to attend MOFO 2014 in Tassie and documented his experience via photography while he was there. To the uninitiated, MOFO is a genre-bending festival of music, art, food and booze situated on the fine waterfront of Hobart. Highlights of the festival include FauxMo, a club night/afterparty which runs from 10pm til the early hours of the next morning, and the curatorial curveballs thrown by Brian Ritchie of the Violent Femmes. Dan worked across the spheres of sound, dance, theatre, visual art, performance and new media to create a stunning series of photos: up above you’ll see The Lepidopters; down below you’ll find Floridian rapper Astronautilus, ambient metal artist STRIBORG, the Orb, RGB, and Cybele watches bit.fall by Julius Popp.
How gorgeous is Kelly Thompson‘s work for Escada?! She won a pitch to illustrate the assets for their new summer fragrance, Born in Paradise, and she has been working tirelessly on the campaign since 2011. This commission represents a dream come true for Kelly. She goes into greater depth about her drafting process on her blog, if you want to know what it’s really like to be a dedicated illustrator. As for what Born in Paradise smells like? Summertime, exuberance and sweet, sweet success, of course!
Another year, another Wil Anderson poster that blows the arse out of any other International Comedy Festival promotions thanks to the brilliantJames Fosdike. James created the army of Wils to promote ‘Goodwil’ last year and wanted to provide something extra special for Anderson’s latest show ‘Wiluminati’. He artfully set Wil up as a religious deity, depicting the duality of his nature with a dog and a cat, some illicit substances and a couple of slabs of cake. But is Wil’s good side the one who is in thongs or the one shod in Doc Martens? James takes the theme of duality further into the streetscape: one side is L.A., the other side is Sydney. He even asked Wil’s Twitter followers to send him photographs of themselves holding offerings and received a phenomenal response – check out the jelly snakes, beer, cakes and donuts!
Eirian Chapman carried the sacred torch of Emma Leonard, Rik Lee, and Kelly Thompson this month with her wonderful work as guest illustrator for Hitched Magazine. She worked on a portrait of stylist Megan Morton, an illustrated guide to honeymoon essentials, and the cake-themed cover art. Eirian’s quirky, geometric sense of style is exactly what you need to transform a wedding from the generic into the bespoke: that, or several tons of marzipan for a three-tiered centrepiece. We can’t decide.
