  7. Newsflash: Real humans are connected with one another whether they like it or not. They are awkward and dumb and wave their arms around if they get upset enough; real humans all have personal touchstones that are “off the map” because there is no map. We are so maplessly, ridiculously uncool that whole cultures and subcultures, whole personalities even, have been built to hide our ridiculousness from ourselves.

    Mary Gaitskill on why judge people for being uncool – an incredibly thoughtful excerpt from the book Let’s Talk About Love: Why Other People Have Such Bad Taste.

  8. One more sleep ‘til COMICINVASIONBERLIN! 
I’ll be at table 14 from around midday. That hopefully gives you enough time to wipe the sleep from your eyes and come on over. 
And if it all gets a bit too much and you need a little rest, there’ll be a bar. You can also lie down under my table.

  10. Project: 100 Favourite Places Guidebook

    image

    Last year, in the thick heat of summer, I drew the maps for Slow Travel Berlin’s guidebook, 100 Favourite Places.

    From their page:

    "Instead of highlighting the city’s hippest ‘hotspots’, we’ve taken a more patient and personal approach to bring you 100 special places, many of which would not be mentioned in conventional guides." 

    My task was to create maps with location markers for as many of the 100 places as possible. Not as easy as it may sound! But given my excessive fondness for drawing lines and dots, I didn’t mind the challenge. In fact, I had a ridiculously good time.

    image

    The project started with some rough sketches:

    We soon realised that most of these sketches were too zoomed in. So I started thinking about scale and layout and a few other things.

    In the end, we managed to fit 95 of the 100 places onto 5 double-page maps.

    To keep things organised, each map was broken down into 4 main layers (drawn on separate sheets of A4 paper):

    Layer 1 - Streets and Water

    image

    Layer 2 - Parks

    image

    Layer 3 - Street Names

    image

    Layer 4 - U- and S-Bahn Stations

    image

    The layers were then scanned, stitched together and cleaned up in Photoshop.

    Here’s one of the final spreads:

  24. New Booklets!

    image

    I’ve been spending a lot of time recently working on a new booklet (stressing, tweaking, obsessing)….. The hardest part I often find is knowing when to stop.

    I did eventually stop, sent the files to the printer, and waited. A week later and the hallway is now home to 4 gigantic boxes of booklets. So pleased with how they turned out! 

    They’ll be ready for you in the next couple of days, but if you’d like you can already order a copy here.
