I was recently commissioned by the very fantastic Anorak Magazine, a happy mag for kids, to make patterns for a few of their issues that can be used behind articles and as endpapers. It was massively exciting and great fun! the first issue was themed around under the sea so I made some watery patterns, the next issue was their 10 year anniversary so the theme was party!
Iasked my tutor at college to see if he could get the founder, writer and art director of Anorak, Cathy Olmedias, to visit the university and give a talk, which she did! It was a fascinating insight into the magazine and she visited the studio to see what we had been up to. It was really lovely to finally meet her having only talked via the internet, she gave me lots of great advice. What a day!
