Happy New Year! Here is a fun little thing that i got to work on for the latest issue of Howler. As you can probably tell it’s a folding paper model of Real Madrid’s Estadio Santiago Berneabau. Designing it was a fun challenge and unlike anything that i’ve done before.
Working with Howler has been an absolute pleasure. It’s a young magazine and they are extremely open to doing cool unusual stuff. This project, like many of the things I’ve made for them was my own idea. As an illustrator i’m unfortunately often at the end of the line creatively, and many people come to me with already formed ideas that they would like me to execute. This is of course fine and i’m grateful i get to do it, but it’s a real treat to be able to come up with something myself and see it all the way to fruition which Howler has been allowing me to do. The fact that the subject matter, soccer, is something I love makes it all the sweeter.
Also, on another note. I’m going to try to post here more often this year. Recently i’ve been taking on some larger scale projects which i’m not allowed to share until completion, if at all, which leaves me with little to post. I’m going to try to post some more personal work, get back to sharing sketchbook stuff and hopefully come up with some process posts and things of the like. If there is anything that you would be interested to see or read about please let me know!
