I’ve been staying up way too late for my own good this past week. But I can’t help it, it’s the first week I’ve been able to work in the basement studio that my boyfriend Garrett was instrumental in setting up. Finally! I don’t have to be crammed right next to my bed wrangling with pots of ink or markers, spilling paint on everything.
Here’s a small fruit of my labors: the album art for my dear friend, Sofia Sparr. She’s got a beautiful track out, “När Jag Dör”, that deserves to be listened to on repeat! Below is the illustration.
Here’s a simple little sign I put together for Astor with the recipe of a Negroni Cocktail.
It does’t have to be difficult to make a delicious drink!
A version of this map is going to be used for a post on Tasting Notes. It lists all the major bourbon distilleries in Kentucky and indicates their location.
This past weekend I worked all Sunday to put together the new window display for Astor Wines & Spirits. The theme was ‘April in Paris’. Naturally, the first thing I thought of was people sitting outside enjoying themselves in a cafe. You can’t walk 5 meters in Paris without coming across a cafe with plenty of tables on the sidewalk. The funny thing is how all the chairs are turned outwards towards the sidewalk – I guess people-watching is the national sport of the french! I painted the backdrop to look down Rue St. Dominique, at the point where it crosses Boulevard La-Tour Mabourg. I was feeling nostalgic – I used to live in a tiny tiny apartment on Boulevard La-Tour Mabourg, next to a fishing supplies shop run by two friendly guys who would always wave hello to me.
Anyways, the snowmen from the previous window had to go – in the photo above they’re waiting to be melted in Astor’s dumpsters.
I was interviewed! http://www.gprecs.com/2012/02/22/interview-charlotte-gudmundsson/
Admittedly this was this february – but better late than never!
