Cover illustration for a magazine called “Metro Guide” being distributed thought metro stations in Tokyo from September 2017.
Number of copies: around 1 000 000.

This edition is autumn themed so I tried to make my illustration fit the contents with the colors and atmosphere. I used the Jindaiji temple and the shops that surround it as an inspiration for the setting.

Nadine wants us to be a #LadyLuster

Hey guys!

Finally, I’m updating with someone who’s not from Girls’ Generation! I’m going back to the homeland for this one. 

Anyone who’s anyone knows who Nadine Lustre is. She’s a rising actress, one half of a super popular #ReeltoReal love team, singer, iconic style star and now … businesswoman?

The girl kicks off her business career with her first fragrance, Luster by Nadine Lustre. The girl must be going places, because everyone knows, if you’re uber popular and famous, you get a fragrance line. And, if it’s good, it will become iconic (AKA Britney Spears’ Fantasy collection!).

Anyways, check her very artsy and fashionable and sexy photoshoot she did for the fragrance (with the help photographer BJ Pasucal, make-up artist Jelly Eugenio, stylist Eldz Mejia, and artist Soleil Ignacio) to bring her project to life.

love love love the pink satin slinky dress and faux fur coat!

reminiscent of Paris lingerie ads 

rockin’ the barely there look (but bejeweled to show she fancy)

pin-up doll look is sexy and calling back to European perfume/fashion ads - matching with her generally chic and sexy aesthetic

Check out the video below!

Also go behind the scenes of the photoshoot!

Page ten of the Survival/Metro Storm Boy: Ocean Studies Guide. The 25 page guide was included as a supplement in Metro Magazine in 1978. The guide includes ideas for excursions, activities, information about animals and a shell guide, using the film Storm Boy as the central text to inspire an exploration of the ocean.
