For the February/March issue of ‘The Believer,’ I worked on the issue’s monthly ‘Incidental Illustration’ series. The series is always open to the artist’s choice, so with some input from the art director, we went with the theme of ‘street picks.’
By street picks, I mean items that are found abandoned and then adopted into one’s home. This is pretty common in Seoul, with many of my favorite home goods a product of the practice. I also find the life that an item had in a previous owner’s home fascinating, and I hoped to infuse some of that mystery into the spot illustrations for this issue.
A total of eight spots were incorporated into the issue, using black and the issue’s spot color, neon pink.
