1) Happy birthday to me…(July 15), but I was working from morning till night making set designs for yet another fashion photo shoots with Cleo Sullivan. The results can be seen in new “SHOP etc. Magazine” second issue, on newsstands October 1.

2) I talked about my illustration process on Polish design site Webesteem Magazine. I often get e-mails from fellow artists asking about my medium and process, so I was happy to work on this project showing my sketches and ideas as well as finals. It was fun working with you, Dorian. Also, Thank you Kai Kiuchi for taking my portrait.
