I have a fresh new website- go check it owt!www.stuartkolakovic.co.uk There’s still a few little extras that need adding- including a microsite containing the whole nine meter plus of “Never Been” that’s in the pipeline…
An image for an article about The National Survey of Health and Development that appeared in The Guardian here in the U.K. last week.
Here are some photos of the One Fell Swoop CD I’ve been posting about (by the Amsterdam based duo Rara Avis). It’s nice to see the finished product, and for a change, it’s an object people will keep around rather than something someone will throw out after they are done reading the article…Thanks to Terri for bringing me the CD’s, and hope you get well soon!

New artwork for a cd +booklet I am working on designing for the band “Smile Pretty Mysery”. Check em out. They are really good.
(To get the textures, I gouached some pieces of trace paper, cut them out into fun ‘lil shapes, scanned them in and placed them in my friend, illustrator CS3.)
I recently worked on a project for the Wall Street Journal Online which tracked the rate at which the arctic ice cap has melted over the last quarter of a century. Click here to see the astonishing rate of decrease since 1979 – with the past six years or so of particular worry (you may have to turn your popup blocker off for the link to work… sorry). The magenta line is the median ice extent and is an average of where the ice would normally be on September 1st of each year (around 7.5 million sq miles). As you can see above this summer only reached 4.4 million sq miles. The graphic also covers how arctic tourism industry is booming as visitors want to catch of glimpse of the environment before its gone.
I just finished creating these designs for the Village Voice media kit (the packet they give out to advertisers and clients and such). It was fun working up this subway tile theme, though I underestimated the amount of effort doing all these little tiles would take. I seriously dreamt in tiles for quite a few nights.
As part of the project I also created this logo which adorns the front of the media kit and various other promotions.
This past spring Salomon Snowboards had an artwork contest for some of their 2008 boards. While I didn’t come away with the fame and prize money it was fun working up this illustration as an entry. I had a feeling it might be a bit too messy (and perhaps spooky) for their tastes but its a color palette and style I’ve dug working in lately.
