The Border– EP by Yi Benedikt was produced in close collaboration with Yi Benedikt.
The psychological analysis of his former artworks and illustrations which are mainly drawn in sharp blacks and whites brought us to the conclusion that Yi is suffering from Border– (line) Syndrome. So we called the whole EP that way. Furthermore we decided to give the whole Edition of (7) a hand drawn and spacious look for the sake of the spacious music of Yi, so we only used graphite as a printing medium. Bear illustration by Yi.

Roland Sips — THE PAGES

THE PAGES is a selection from the oeuvre of Roland Sips. He is one of my former drawing teachers from ArtEZ Academy Enschede. Unfortunately he passed away in April 2012 while he was actually in the long process of working on THE PAGES.
Since then we have been working on it with a couple of friends, family and colleagues from AKi Enschede to create a final selection of his mesmerizing surreal graphical overprints and drawings in form of a book and a small additional obit for the sake of his unexpected death.
