People I've never met and conversations I've never had!

These two illustrations are a cooperation between me and my friend Steven Chan for the Nobrow Competition. The competition is calling for artists to illustrate people that they have never met and conversations they never had.

That was a great fun project and my first collaborative illustrations. The work has been traveling between us back and forth until some hours before the deadline! It was fantastic and I think If there wasn't a deadline we could keep playing around and passing it to each other forever!

Steven Chan and I will be an illustration couple under the name Fairytale Asylum and this work is our first one! Be aware there is much more on the way!

Wrong Love at the A Foundation

After some long nights working on the design and video for the DJ set at the alternative Valentine's party Wrong Love in Liverpool held at the A Foundation, finally came the reward!

The event was mainly great and I really hope we will see more edgy and artistic night events in Liverpool again. I enjoyed observing the installations set up on the night and I also enjoyed a dreamy-like, one to one performance I experienced talking to a mysterious person while being blind folded and fed cake into my mouth. My imagination and curiosity are ready to explode since then, wondering about who was the person I talked with, and the environment where the experience took place.

One of my favorite moments was the kind puppet and his master Colin Eccleston in a sweet yet funny puppetry show.

The only unfortunate moment of the night was that I couldn't enjoy as much as it deserved the performance of my friend Kim Bumstead, as by the time he appeared a lot of people were behaving badly and drunk. One thing I would hope for for future events would be some sort of security for the artists and performers in these situations.

So, enjoy my video compilation played during the event, and have a closer look on some artists and performers of the night, Kimbal Bumstead, Jayne Lawless and Improvisation Laboratory w/Fool's Proof Theatre.

Many thanks to Come into Land that brought as the event.
Looking forward to see more!
