Norse x Colette


Happy New year Everyone!

I've been very slow at updating over the last few months as I have been up to my eyeballs in some amazing projects. but I promise that I will keep my new years resolution and make sure that I post twice weekly on my progress with my work. I have a lot to show you all, so keep your eyes peeled. And what better way to begin a new year than with a limited edition t-shirt design that I made for a  collaboration between the amazing brand Norse projects and fantastic French concept store Colette .  The brief was quite re-refreshing as I was limited to a two colour palette of Black (which I hardly ever use) and the Colette Blue. This was a great exercise as I usually think quite a lot about the colour all the way through the process of making my work, but because I knew what the palette would be from the start it gave me more opportunity to think about the composition, line and content of the image. It is also an amazingly quick way of working, so the images keep that intuitive quality which I love. I think I may experiment more with using a very restrictive palette in my work in the future as well as including more line work.
The tees are on sale now at the Colette store and are in a super limited edition of 50. So if you want one you'd best be snappy, as they might sell out!!!!!1

What a great project, Daniel. It is very different for you, although, it still has your long sinewy figures that are so fun and whimsical.

It would be nice to hear from you more often on this blog. No worries if we don't though. I think we understand that you're a hardworking, commercial artist and that's good enough for us! Cheers! Happy 2013!
