Stefan Glerum – Stained Glass Project

Stefan Glerum - Stained Glass

 

Stefan Glerum recently updated his portfolio with a stunning project for an Amsterdam-based housing complex. Working along side a fabricator (Atelier Schmit), Stefan crafted a series of  multi-paned stained glass murals that ascend to a height of 60 feet. Both murals pay homage to the local history and feature the Oostergasfabriek (a 19th century gas factory) that was well-known in the area.

Chris DeLorenzo Interview

Chris DeLorenzo

I’ve been following the work of Christopher DeLorenzo for sometime now and i’ve always been impressed with his ability to skillfully navigate between illustration, type and design with the slightest of ease. Building on simple forms, he crafts character-driven work that is equally informed by his love for film and passion for literature. A native of Massachusetts, Chris briefly ventured into NY for a stint at Saatchi & Saatchi X. He has since returned, to take on the lead design / art director role at the clothing brand Johnny Cupcakes. We’ve featured Chris’s work on the site in the past, but in today’s interview he grants us a closer look into his work and process.

Yellow: The Collected Book

off life yellow

Created by the team behind OFF LIFE, Yellow is a celebration of illustration and the artists who’ve made it their own. Through Yellow, OFF LIFE wanted to show that illustration isn’t just a medium of pretty pictures; that it can be as powerful as any photograph or piece of writing. With this in mind, they rounded up 52 of the world’s most exciting artists, allocated them each a week of the year and asked them to illustrate one news story that broke within their seven days. The result is an entire illustrated year from 52 unique perspectives. And with the year nearly up, we’re collecting every piece into a beautiful hardback book that showcases what illustration can bring to the biggest issues of our time.

Artists include Jean Jullien, Hattie Stewart, Supermundane, Malika Favre, Ian Stevenson, Stanley Chow, Grace Wilson, Pete Fowler, Martin Rowson, Matthew the Horse, Charlotte Mei, Jamie Coe, Chris Riddell, Martina Paukova, Chris SimpsonsArtist and (literally) dozens more.

OFF LIFE will be taking orders over the next few days through their Kickstarter campaign. Pick up your copy now!
