Cy Twombly

Just figured out Cy Twombly died not long ago. Just at a moment I really started to ( re-) appreciate his work...Rest in peace.

A nice article on his work and life here.

Each line he made, he said, was “the actual experience” of making the line, adding: “It does not illustrate. It is the sensation of its own realization.”


I really like the work of Eindhoven based studio Raw Color. It's both playfully experimental and thoroughly modernist, an interesting combination.

They also won a prize for their book designs for Onomatopee.

One of these books is a little gem of Erwin Tomasse's work, definitely a good read.
Get it here.

Martyn's EP on Brainfeeder, with the wall I did in Poznan, Poland on the cover. Thanks to Mnono for the pic. EP out in August, album this fall. Pre-order here.

We done did something big.

Me, Spielerei and Graphic Surgery just finished this 66m X 11m wall next to the tracks at Strijp-S in Eindhoven. It took some weeks, but we're pretty happy with the result. Some making-of pics here:

Niessen & de Vries / Karel Martens

Check out the beautiful work of Amsterdam based Niesen & de Vries.

Their work reminds me a bit of Karel Martens, I found a nice steenkolen-English interview of this Dutch master;

Has something interesting to say about failure, success, professionalism and personal development.

"...a way of working...that is understandable to others."

Resident Advisor X

The nice people at RA asked me to design one of their posters for the 10 10th anniversary parties around the world called RA X. My poster is for the party in Sao Paulo at D-Edge Club, it's silkscreened, 3 ( switched ) colours, edition of 75 and JUST £15.00!!! Get it here.

They also did an interview, read all about it here.

And RA's Paul Clement took some photos of the silkscreen-process, see it here.

Thanks RA!
