Fashion and music, you know?

Posted in Fashion, Illustration, My drawings, My work for my clients, World wide web by nicolarowlands on August 5, 2010

A friend I went to High School with in Chicago now runs a fashion and music blog called Stic Of The Week.  She writes about who’s who and what’s what in the world of festivals and being cool and wearing wayfarers and stuff.  I did her a little blog header redesign, trying to keep it festival-y and music-y.

She is using the little birdy as their twitter avatar and I’ve also just done her some business cards for her to hand out at Lollapalooza. I’ll post photos of the cards soon.

Here’s some illustrations I did for the third Birthday and 20th issue of Blanket Magazine.  Download it here and read some totally inspiring interviews with rad people such as Ed Wardle, Anna Bond, Faythe Levine, Julia Rothman, Steve Watson and the people behind Beautiful/Decay,  New Sugar, Ammo Magazine, Proteus Mag and Forth Thread.

Oh, and not to mention some illustration and free desktop wallpaper by ME!  As if all that weren’t enough to make you scream, buying an issue enters you into a prize draw for winning a print by Jenkins worth about a hundred and sixty squid… and it’s pretty darn nice…

Welcome to K Interiors!My lovely client Kate is now the proud owner of her very own website.  Well, it’s just a holding page for the time being until we’ve got some photos of her work.  After an afternoon spent cutting and pasting server names and passwords and renaming flash files I think it’s  time for a cup of my kitchen’s finest.
