My illustration and knight self-portrait for the 1001 Knights zine successfully funded through Kickstarter and run by Kevin Stanton and Annie Stoll! My work will be in the Wisdom volume alongside some of my close friends and favorite artists. Thanks @onethousandandoneknights, @kevinjaystanton, and @anniestoll for the amazing opportunity!

Frank’s interest in pattern design was not unique among Viennese architects; like Josef Hoffmann, Koloman Moser, Otto Czeschka, and Dagobert Peche, he produced several early designs for the Wiener Werkstätte. Unlike other Wiener Werkstätte designers who created a unified design scheme by using the same pattern throughout an interior—on textiles, wallcoverings, and even fashion—Frank preferred an eclectic combination of fabrics in his interiors.
