I've just received some exciting news from New York. The piece that I created for the September issue of Fast Company Magazine last year has been chosen as one of the winners of the 55th annual Type Director's Club Awards. A big thank you to Jana Meier for entering my piece for the awards.

You can see my illustration on the Evening Tweed website here, and the full list of this year's TDC winners here.

Seas of Infinity

I was asked a few months ago to be part of an Artist Series for Engrave Your Book, a company specialising in engraved leather Moleskine covers. My design is inspired by the writings of H.P. Lovecraft, using a quote taken from his story The Call of Cthulhu. After many sleepless nights trying to get my head around creating this geometric pattern, I'm very pleased to announce that the cover is now available from the Engrave Your Book shop!

Vendoin is Here!

Yes it's true, Joseph Crocker's first Nobrow Small Press book is now available to Pre-Order from the Nobrow site. Vendoin is a tale of a missing stiletto, and its journey into the deepest recesses of a Dantean inferno of lost garments and psychedellic cross-dressing ghouls. Featuring Joseph's wonderful pen and ink drawings, this book is a real triumph. The book is hand-printed in an edition of only 50 copies, all numbered and signed by the artist, and will be released on the 21st September. It's already been selling very well so grab yourself a copy now while you still can!
