Peter's Printed Paper Poodles

After admiring Peter Clark's richly textured three dimensional collages at Kickcan and Conkers a few months ago, I was glad to discover that Black Dog recently published a book of his artworks.

Clark is a long time collector of ephemera and his collages are beautifully assembled from old maps, stamps, buttons and other vintage objects that he finds visiting antique markets and secondhand stores with his wife, textile designer Karen Nicol. I love all of Peter's beasts, but as you can see I am especially fond of his colorful and often very funny dog portraits. Make sure to also check out his fantastic paper garments!

  1. Creativo Surface Design is reaching out to textile/surface designers across the globe and we came across your website. We feel that your work would be a great addition to our pool of designs.

    Right now Creativo Surface Design is looking to work with freelance textile designers to design for the different apparel markets we serve. We are working at the moment on putting together the collections for next year trade shows. Just to give you an idea, we have boys, girls, juniors, women’s and men’s collections (swimwear, street wear…etc.)

    If you have something under your portfolio, that it is not older than a year, please send us JPEGs in order for us to see and determine if they are a good fit to what our customers are looking for. We are working on Spring-Summer 2011 right now.

    Just to let you know you, we keep the designer’s names and contact info strictly confidential. So NO worries. In our company we signed a confidentiality agreement so we do not disclose your name and info.

    Let me know if you are interested in this opportunity. Also, if you know of any other designers that you want to recommend please give them a hint, send us their personal e-mail address and we will keep in touch with them.

    All the best!
