Graphic designer Masaki Miwa did a post about our collaboration.
Thank you, Masaki!
“The modest Rose”, a zine made in collaboration with graphic artist Dovile Puzinaite aka That Sugar Beet.
The idea of the process was that we would send each other images and would play with them; a quick bounce ping pong.
For my images, I’ve visually interpreted William Blake’s poem “The Lilly” (as it is one of my favourite poems):
The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threat’ning horn:
While the Lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright.
