It’s the in betweens that are a stickler. Somebody told me they wanted to eat this page – I think it was a compliment. I thought, that’s going to hurt going down. Just another page from my sketchbook, part of my participation in the Sketchbook Project.

At the end of last year I was lucky enough to help create branding for an idea called Mister Museum. Sometimes when a new client crosses your path, you just KNOW it was meant to be. Here is a stylized version of the Bureau’s first meeting with the man behind Mister Museum.

The gist is that artists receive a blank moleskin, fill it with whatever they want, send it back. Then the collection of books go on a tour similar to a concert, but much more quietly.
