A Curious Case

A Curious Case

Namecards usually come in a standard deviation of 9cm x 5cm, on 180 – 200 gsm art card paper. My new Wottoncool name cards (don’t believe they’ve made an appearance here yet) illustrate this point. Occasionally there will be a curveball in the mix, with a square design or some more elaborate (READ: expensive)┬ácard or […]

A blogging by-product has been this concerted effort to improve my photography and produce better visuals for Wottoncool. Transitioning from a point-and-shoot in 2009 to a semi-pro, to a DSLR and then, most recently, upgrading my lens.

Cuffs and WIP

Cuffs and WIP

Louis Vuitton just released their Fall campaign images. And instead of just posting them, like everyone else, I am (crazily) attempting to paint it. (Using gouache, which is something like watercolour, on an F4-size paper. In case you are wondering)
