That's How A Pumpkin Grows

Brian Vogan has a new CD "Little Songs" and a new music video for the catchy children's song "That's How A Pumpkin Grows". I had lots of fun illustrating and directing this animated piece created in team with the great people of FashionBuddha Studio.

DAHRA Collaboration

“Play.Create.” is the fourth project and second exhibition of DAHRA (Designers Against Human Rights Abuse) created by the designer & artist Rishi Sodha. Basically the invitation was to customize a a Kid Robot ‘Munny’ doll, The premise is the project that 10 product designers, 10 graphic designers and 10 children will all customise these dolls on the theme of play and creativity for an exhibition and auction to show the inherent links we all share in creativity and how we are all equal in that respect despite our age. All money raised will go to Barnardo’s (a UK based children’s charity) as well as 10 children being treated to a day of inspiring workshops and fun art activities where they will customise their dolls.

The exhibition will be held in London in early November (location to be confirmed) And this is my custom Munny.

The Enamored Whale | Special limited edition 2009

It's been three years since I did an illustration named The Enamored Whale, that particular illustration means a lot to me cause practically marked the beginning of my illustrator career and still one of the most popular works I've ever done. So, in a way to celebrate these exciting years of an amazing journey creating art I made a stylized version of The Enamored Whale and brought it to you in a limited edition of signed beautiful letterpress prints. Available now on my ETSY shop by $20.

Print specifications:

• 8.5" X 11" Letterpress print, three colors (chocolate color has a metallic touch) on 100% recycled handmade paper.
• Soy based inks (VOC free) are hand-mixed and printed each by hand in a limited edition of 250. Hand signed and numbered by me.
• Carefully packaged and shipped in stay flat mailer, protected with print protector bag for long-term storage.

The prints were printed by the fine guys of Olivine Studio in Portland, here are some pictures of the process in the making of these beauties, I'm so pleased with the results! :D
