I have long admired the comic book stylised illustrations of Dis Pater, with his strikingly powerful characters, beautiful draftsmanship and gorgeous use of colour tones setting off his illustrations wonderfully within the world he has created. www.dispaternyc.com
So to receive an invite to work with him covering this season’s SS20 Menswear illustrations was pure joy for me.
Our approach maybe different and quite literally an ocean apart, but we share a love for menswear and illustration. Our vision is to show this united creative approach in a fun way, covering our favourite collections from each of the cities.
We are updating mainly on Instagram, so please follow the hashtag #dispaterxem or start following us both on instagram for regular updates!
For myself I’m using this an added opportunity to finally pick up my iPad and start using Procreate for this collaboration, which I have had for well over a year and a half now…yes I know, I procrastinate.
It’s the perfect project for this digital tool, not only am I trying to ensure my hand drawn stylings translate onto screen, it’s also great for the turn around time needed to cover the shows over the coming weeks. (I’m also finding it to be a particularly fab portable mess free tool.)
We hope you enjoy the new work to come over on instagram! If you would like to work with either or both DIS PATER and I please feel free to drop us a line at the following for more info!
Thanks for stopping by.
