I was recently asked to contribute to Inbox (12), a fanzine from Spain, consisting of 12 postcards drawn by 12 illustrators. The 12 postcards represent 12 city locations, all of them favourite spots of the 12 illustrators.
I contributed to the London edition, having lived in London for the last ten years. The other currently published city editions are Berlin and Madrid, but with New York and Tokyo also in the pipeline there’s plenty of amazing secret locations for you to discover.
I’d like to extend thanks to the makers of Inbox (12), especially since they have so diligently put together my very own profile on their site. The other illustrators involved in the London issue are all worth mentioning so please do visit the following:Brett Ryder, Chengsi Lu, Christina Christoforou, David Sparshott, Emily Spicer, Florian Meacci, Harriet Russell, Jo Cheung, Katey Jean, Kristopher Ho and Sandra Dieckmann.
If you’d like to see other illustrators favourite London spots buy a copy here(12).
From the Inbox (12) blog…
“A postcard is a trip invitation to visit spots we don´t know yet, to explore those we already know through the sender´s eyes, to imagine everything that is not told and could be happening at that place that someone is drawing for us…
Inbox (12) is a guide of the special spots in one city that a friend who knows the place would recommended to you… and they´re not always in the usual travel guides.
Inbox (12) is a sample of the work of a selection of the best illustrators related to each city all around the world.
Inbox (12) is a project that wants to recover the feeling of opening the mailbox and finding a bunch of beautiful postcards sent from a nice city waiting for you.
