The Typefaces

thetypefaces

The Typefaces are simply faces in type. Born in a book, they can now be found climbing walls, walking the malls, and spending way too much time on social media.

The Strangest, yet Amusing Days on Earth!

StrangeDays

I’ve always been interested in different customs from around the world as they reveal a unique aspect of a culture that might seem a bit strange to people from other parts of the world – but this is exactly what makes these customs so interesting!

To highlight all of these unique and strange days on earth, the online travel authority Expedia Sweden, has made a unique series of illustrated traditions and holidays from across the globe. Have a look for yourself.

Monkey Buffet

What do you do when ever-hungry monkeys are the primary source of tourism to your town? In Pra Prang, Thailand the answer is to throw them a once-a-year all-you-can-eat buffet bonanza.

Tunarama

Though it was meant to promote Australia’s tuna industry, the festival is mostly known and celebrated for one thing: the tuna toss.

Las Fallas

A Spanish fiesta where the whole of Valencia is literally set ablaze. The 5-day fire festival ends with the destruction of huge paper-maché statues. With the crowds chanting at midnight, all but one of the effigies is burnt – with the favourite surviving in the Fallero Museum for posterity.

Songkran

Every April, to celebrate New Year, the world’s largest water gun fight takes place in Thailand. And no, it’s not just some small isolated village. We’re talking about an entire country drowning itself with water pistols. The fun isn’t limited to water guns – some people prefer to use buckets or even let elephants take part.

Walking Dead Character Illustrative Prints

Glenn_No_Frame

I have been working on a series of illustrative prints around the theme of the TV show “the walking dead”. Each print reduces each character down to just 2/3 objects/symbols that sum up that character in a iconographic way. I have so far illustrated: Rick Grimes, Glenn Rhee, Michonne, Daryl Dixon and Morgan Jones.

The Little Donkey Without a Tail by Claire O'Brien Illustration

Heavily inspired by the rich, colourful culture and traditional costumes of South East Asia, Claire has created soft, playful illustrations depicting the stories and people she has encountered on her travels.

Inspired by the rich and vibrant folk-art and crafts of the indigenous peoples in Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China, she is particularly fascinated by the culture and traditions of the Hmong people, whose embroidered clothing is famous throughout Asia for its wonderful colour and depth.
