The past decade has seen a revival of contemporary illustration in advertising, magazines, museums and art galleries, resulting in a strong presence in online publications and exhibitions. Illustration can be seen as a voice of our time, a reflection of our society.
It was time for me to start my own independent online zine showcasing talented contemporary illustrators from around the world.
The first issue is about women, a classic and endlessly inspiring theme. From the ancient Greeks to Renaissance painters, from Baroque sculptors to photographers of today, countless artists have found the female body to be a source of inspiration and had women as their muses.
Twenty of the most exciting emerging and established illustrators have been selected to create six illustrations of sensual women. Most of these artworks have been made exclusively for this magazine. The result is extraordinary, elegant, sensitive, emotional, provocative, erotic and sensual.

Creative direction of the Ad Campaign and film of Vlisco's "Dazzling Graphics" in collaboration with fabulous fashion photographer Fritz Kok.
Since 1846, Vlisco has been creating unique textiles, in Holland, that have influenced the fashion landscape in West and Central Africa. These textiles are a display of true Dutch craftsmanship and as such were originally known as ‘Hollandais’, from the French word for ‘Dutch’. Vlisco’s inspiring designs have made Vlisco an international brand that is a market leader in African prints.
