What have you been up to artistically since you last did a cover for us?

Many exhibitions, a new clothing collection last summer shot in Asia, and a lot of Freelance work. It’s been a year since the last cover but it feels like a decade in the professional sense. But I still never work a day in my life!

Tell us about the idea behind this cover?

I’m trying different things for the visuals of Evhemeria (my clothing and design brand), and this one had been on my mind for many months. I don’t really know why, but the mix of the flamingo and a grand Penny Farthing looked amazing in my head.

This design appears to draw from some old English fashions and inventions. Is that something that has influenced you?

Yes, it is. Anatomy drawing, Da Vinci and that kind of old newspaper is such an influence and an inspiration for all of my work

Have you ever met a flamingo?
