Laura Laine’s Fashion Illustrations

Laura Laine is an amazingly talented fashion illustrator. She has studied fashion design at the University of Art and Design Helsinki, with a focus on fashion illustration. After completing her studies she has been working full-time as a freelace illustrator. Her clients include Zara, Tommy Hilfiger, H&M, Iben Hoej, Daniel Palillo, The New York Times Magazine, Elle Girl, The Guardian, and Páp Magazine.

Her predominantly black and white illustrations are hauntingly beautiful and delicate, but they sometimes have a rather dark or even eccentric, burtonesque feel to them. One of the main characteristics of her drawings is the incredibly fine and detailed line work, which manages to suggest a great variety of textures (fur, silk, wool, leather etc.). Further, there is a certain motion quality to her illustrations which is conveyed by the gracefully twisted body postures and the splendidly flowing long hair of her characters.

The above (apparently mirrored) illustration featuring two young women each holding a fox is entitled “kitsune” (Japanese for “fox”) and was created for Kitsune Noir’s desktop wallpaper project. You can download it there in different sizes and admire it in high quality. See below for several other pieces by this talented Finnish illustrator.

In September, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis presents its most ambitious group show since its grand opening six years ago. For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there starts with the premise that art is not a code that needs cracking. Celebrating the experience of not-knowing and unlearning, the artists in this exhibition understand the world in speculative terms, eager to keep art separate from explanation. Embracing a spirit of curiosity, this show is dedicated to the playfulness of being in the dark.

Artists: Anonymous, Dave Hullfish Bailey, Marcel Broodthaers, Sarah Crowner, Mariana Castillo Deball, Eric Duyckaerts, Ayse Erkmen, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Peter Fischli & David Weiss, Rachel Harrison, Giorgio Morandi, Matt Mullican, Bruno Munari, Nashashibi/Skaer, Falke Pisano, Jimmy Raskin, Frances Stark, Rosemarie Trockel, Patrick van Caeckenbergh, David William. Catalog designed by Will Holder.

For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there is curated by Anthony Huberman.

For the blind man in the dark room looking for the black cat that isn’t there will travel to an additional American venue, and a slightly modified version of the exhibition will simultaneously travel to three European venues:

Where the Wild Things Are

February 1, 2010

Geoff Mcfetridge:

This is a small collection of some of the work I have done for Spike Jonze’s film adaptation of the book Where the Wild Things Are. Champion Graphics and Geoff McFetridge created the entire graphic package for the liscensed products related to the film. This includes special products for Urban Outfitters, Opening Ceremony, Colette Paris, Lakai Shoes, Girl Skateboards, and Ugg Boots.

We also created the trailer titles, main titles and type treatments for the film.

I met Spike around 1998 and I have worked with him a lot over the years. This usually involved creating piles of work that amounted to a very small contribution to the project. This never bothered me, because it was an incredibly creative, fun and rewarding process that led up to the scrapping of my work!

I noticed a difference when I began working on Where the Wild Things Are. For the first time I felt that Spike and I were working on a project where I could actually contribute in a significant way. Much less of what I was making was being discarded, which was a first. I was given the opportunity to interpret not only Spike Jonze’s interpretation of Where the Wild Things Are, but also Maurice Sendak’s original book. It was an amazing opportunity.

Like any kid growing up in the 70’s I was greatly influenced by Mr. Sendak’s books. His books are not just on my bookshelf they are in my blood. What I did with the titles, type treatments and marketing graphics also owes greatly to the heavy creative lifting done by Sonny Gerasimowicz who designed the creatures in the film and the Art Direction of K.K. Barrett.

Spike was closely involved in all of the work I did. I believe that he saw what I was doing as another part of the film making process, and treated it with a directors attention to detail. This meant coming by my studio on his scooter to go over T-shirt graphics or to force me to draw things with my left hand. He wanted to ensure that all the material created by the film reinforced the spirit that went into it’s creation. In critiquing the work he would often say; “It should look handmade…” and would recoil from things that looked “too good”. For him this was a handmade film. It’s images were not made of pixels; they were sewn, molded, carved, drawn, photographed and scratched into reality.
