Really nice new cover design for an old subject and the creative design process posted here.

Along with a quote from the Designer, Malika Favre

When you are an illustrator the challenge everytime you get a commission such as this one is to hit the right note, no matter how many goes you have at it .Most importantly: the end result has to look effortless so that all those rounds of feedback and changes have to disappear behind that end result. The process behind a project like this is however much more time consuming and sometimes challenging than it looks. And this one was a tough one, believe me : )

I probably shouldn’t try a french title since Emily Damstra is from Canada and probably speaks French Eh?

I came across her stuff while trying to concept an assignment today and was just outright impressed by her style, technique, range and work ethic.

She is one very busy lady. Evident in her website here and her blog here which also offers some excellent insights into her profession.

The Floating World

Posted in Hokusai with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2013 by bigbabyhead

I started this post on Hokusai and his influence as an illustrator in the early age of mechanical reproduction and just got real carried away on the definition of Ukiyo-e, this style, content and technique of woodblock prints when literally defined sounds a lot like the “love culture” of the 60’s or “glam culture” of the 70’s or even “hip hop culture”. After I spent way too long pondering all this work and reading this quote, the continuity of Hokusai’s work made a lot more sense:

Usually the word ukiyo is literally translated as “floating world” in English, referring to a conception of an evanescent world, impermanent, fleeting beauty and a realm of entertainments (kabuki,courtesansgeisha) divorced from the responsibilities of the mundane, everyday world; “pictures of the floating world”, i.e. ukiyo-e, are considered a genre unto themselves.

I was simply trying find a category for him. Here is a nice collection of 5000 or so pieces of every description.
