came across a new magazine about a month ago named WUW in chapters. started looking through it and realized how absolutely fantastic it is. it consists of: illustration/ photography/ typography/ urbanfashion/ graphicdesign/ architecture/ 3D design/ digital design and overall awesomeness. an artist that particularly caught my eye was GEORGE MITCHELL from the uk. he describes himself as an “illustrator, workaholic and skateoholic” , what more could you as for. what i enjoy most about his illustrations are the soft colors and the texture best of all. theres another reason why i like them, but im not sure i can really put it into words, so i wont try (‘je ne sais quoi?’). anyhow since i was stumped for words, i got more of the low-down from george mitchell himself. quite frankly, anyone who answers questions with ‘lurking’ and references to camels and wizards is a friend of mine. plus, the drawrrrring above was made especially for GOLDZMINE !
Sometimes my work just happens. I’l be drawing away in my sketchbook, on a scrap piece of paper, a toilet wall or a bus seat and i’l think to myself ‘oh that one looks pretty good’. So i take that drawing and finalise it with collaged bits of scanned papers or whatever else i find when im out skating or lurking.
I think my main inspirations are the things around me at all times that i must take in without knowing. Im always observing people when im out, maybe thats where i get ideas from? I am really inspired by outsider artists, good punk music, good hiphop and lots of other stuff like this massive dog that walks past the skatepark which looks like a camel/wizard.
I started drawing at an early age but i never took it seriously. I used to just draw in my school books and what not. I think i got into drawing from boredom mainly. I used to draw pictures of drugs and weird acid trips when i was twelve even though i’d never done drugs?? Ive still got those pictures somewhere!!
if you were a monster?
