The Enchanted Letterpress

I have recently created an illustration depicting an enchanted letterpress workshop, where the presses and power tools come to life at night. While the full illustration can be viewed here on my portfolio, I thought I would reveal some close ups of details that I enjoyed devising for this piece.

I took the opportunity to subtly insert a number of favourite covers, writers or subjects on the dancing sheets of paper which are shot out of the enchanted presses: Euclid’s Elements, Edgar Allan Poe, Sherlock Holmes, the Book of Changes, Titanic newspaper announcement.

Adolphe Mouron Cassandre’s legendary poster L’Atlantique, Méliès’ Le Voyage dans la Lune.

Scattered pages of Euclid’s Elements, Da Vinci drawings and imaginary anatomical illustrations.

A special guest, the studio cat.

Micro Giants

I was commissioned by PLAN ADVISER‘s art director SooJin Buzelli to create an illustration for the “microscope” feature of their November – December 2010 Issue. I chose to limn blossoming city-flowers to illustrate the article “Micro Giants”, which investigates the new frontier in the small- to micro-plan market.

The illustration is a pencil drawing which I digitally coloured:
