“Editorial research—Patrick Vale”

Pat is one of the illustrators I had to include in this research, as his pieces are simply spectacular. The patience, precisions, and determination needed to create one of these huge skylines is incredible.



“HotHouse Talk—Lakwena”

This is the second time I saw Lakwena—we’ve visited her studio as part of our “studio culture week” at the beginning of this academic year. During that visit she was a little rushed, apparently she had a big deadline the next day and had plenty on her mind and hands. However, since I liked her work and personality, I decided to go to her talk even though I was already familiar with her work. She didn’t disappoint. This was the best talk I saw here so far, with Lakwena sharing her very beginnings, inspiration, and lessons learnt, as well as her final big and successful pieces.
