Way back in August I got an email from the super sweet Meghan McEwen, aka editor-in-chief of Chicago’s CS Interiors magazine. She wanted to know if I’d be interested in participating in their Fall issue. Surprised for sure, but I was was thrilled to oblige! So we did a little interview and photographer Maia Harms did a little snappy-snap with her camera and here it is! You can read the digital issue here (I’m on page 40). I also had to pick a few of my local faves to showcase too:
This is the work of Indo Projects, my friends Linsey Burritt & Crystal Grover who do charming window installations for local boutiques. Watch out Barney’s, watch out Anthro, cause these girlies are giving up some serious competition.
And then there’s the amazing independent publisher featherproof books. They produce & design full-length novels but they also have short stories that you can download as free mini-books which you print & assemble yourself. So cute, plus they are AWESOME reads.
And lastly my dear friends, Nick Butcher & Nadine Nakanishi of Sonnenzimmer, who I believe have one of the most unique voices in the whole poster scene. Yes, the whole scene. Nadine’s also got a stunning new artist book, Formal Addictive Programs, out that offers 18 different exercises for developing abstraction in your work.
I’m really grateful to CS for giving me a spotlight to showcase some of my friends’ great work, they are well worth checking out.
