Tomer Hanuka / Interview

I’m still putting together posts covering my trip to Israel but in the meantime I thought you might be interested in a mini interview with Israeli illustrator Tomer Hanuka.

I also have a giveaway copy of his new book “Overkill” which contains over a decade of his work. If you wanna snag the book, read to the end of the interview!

TOMER HANUKA INTERVIEW / OVERKILL GIVEAWAY

It’s a beautiful sunny day here in Vancouver, although it’s now mid-afternoon and I’ve been inside all day working. Can you describe where you are right now?

I’m sitting at my desk looking out the window. It has a view of the building right next to us — a wall of bedroom windows so close you can jump straight into those tenants lives and pick up where they stopped. This is the east village, in New York. It’s calm, gray, just rained.

Yours Truly

I’m really excited to announce that Booooooom and Yours Truly are joining forces on a project! I’ve been following their work for awhile now and I’m beaming just thinking about how cool this is gonna be!

yours truly booooooom

If you’ve never seen their site before you’re in for a very unproductive morning! They’ve spent the past couple years convincing a whole slew of musicians to come and perform in their studio space. Little Dragon, Chromeo, The Morning Benders, Toro Y Moi, Local Natives, Mayer Hawthorne, the list of artists they’ve worked with is ridiculous.

I’ll tell you more about our project tomorrow but in the mean time give these guys a warm welcome, and check out a couple videos below!

A couple months ago we teamed up with Poketo for their first-ever open call for a wallet design. We narrowed down the hundreds of entries down to five finalists and then we left the decision up to you. You guys voted Andrew Lawandus the winner, and that winning design is now a part of the Poketo archives and available in super limited edition!
