NOSTALGIA

This past December I was house sitting for a great photographer friend of mine, Nick Hanekom (Check out his website HERE) and reading through some of his photography and snowboard magazines he had under the coffee table, when I came across an old (2006) issue of a South African magazine called BLUNT.

The last time I probably set eyes on this issue was most likely around when it came out in 2006. What makes this issue so great for me is that I was commissioned to do the illustration and design of the front cover.

What I had forgotten though, while paging through the issue, was the interview and feature done with me and my illustration and design. It’s funny to read something I answered so long ago and seeing where my head was back then.

It’s not very often I get to “blow my own horn”, and it’s always great to look back in the past every now and then to see where you’ve come from and hopefully, where you’re heading.
