Igor&Andre by Danny Roberts
”I’ve always been one for creative projects and art and crafts.
When I was five, I convinced myself that pouring mud onto cardboard was how to make concrete.
I began drawing as a young child, but it wasn’t until a few years ago when I decided to practice everyday, that I started getting better. I would draw some days for 15 hours straight till my hands were swollen shut. When I was 13 I starting my own clothing company and ran it with the help of my friend till I was was in college. I studied Photography at Cal Poly SLO, and then later studied Fashion Design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. My artwork was honored by being the first featured portfolio of 2007 Graduates on the WGSN Generation Now Website, a unique showcase of graduating talent from the world’s leading universities and design colleges. I’ve been blessed to have my artwork featured in multiple publication in countries I hope to visit some day”.
”I love collaborating with other artist. I’m currently working on a few collaboration art projects. I hope to do a few more before the year ends. One is a music project called the Fawn. The other collaboration project is through Paper Castle Press. We are hoping to have it done some time next year. Basically, I wrote a story on the spot, as a bedtime story for a friend, and it really turned out quiet nice. At the start of this year, Sophie Ward and I got together and had the idea of trying to bring in different artist with different tool sets to work on making the story come to life. I ended up putting together a 350 page inspiration book for it. Sophie Ward is going to rewrite it and put her lovely words to it, and Stacy Dupree from the band Eisley has also been working on it. We are still pulling together everyone who is going to be involved with it. There is more information about it at http://www.papercastlepress.com, click on ”Future Titles”. I have throughly enjoyed every moment of it”
