Kinokuniya Catalogue Cover

Wow.. it's been almost 3 weeks since I posted last time. I have several WIPs happening but haven't got time to finish them due to my work commitment. I hope I can upload more soon though :)

While waiting, let me show you the new series that I've just finished. Kinokuniya bookstore in Sydney (where I had my solo exhibition) asked me to illustrate their x-mas catalogue's cover. After some initial discussions, the idea then grew to something bigger.. they wanted me to provide them with a series of illustrations to create a theme for the exterior and interior of the shop. After I gave them several options.. they were suggesting that they love to revisit the wonderland theme. The first idea was to reuse some of the images from my exhibition.. but I ended up suggesting that I should create a new series for them (I couldn't resist).

So, let's start with the cover for today. I'll upload more images and photos from the shop later.


The catalogue cover is printed on a matte paper and has a nice 'shiny' cello-glaze finish on the rabbit hole part. :)


Hope you enjoy :)

This image is so stunning. Love your shapes & use of colour and texture. The images surrounding the hole really add to the image too.
