Mike Lowery off to Frankfurt

Mike writes us:

“In a few days I’ll be heading over to Frankfurt for the big
international book fair. I’ve got a few books being shown by
publishers this year, so it’ll be great to meet up with some of the
folks that I’ve been working with for the past year (or longer!). So,
I’m getting ready by making new postcards, prints, and lots of little
drawings to show at my table. Here’s part one of getting ready for
Frankfurt:”

Mike Lowery’s boys t-shirts

Mike writes:

“I just got a copy of the latest Three Little Trees (australia) catalog. The boys section has several shirts that I designed. If you’re in New York there’s a shop there where you can pick them up, otherwise you’d have to buy them online. Take a look at their site: mike lowery / three little trees. (click on Summer ’10).”

Suzy U & Chronicle: Stationery Bliss (Part 2)

Suzy writes:

“Lilla,
The Masha and Friends package reads, “display your dolls as a set or send them out on postal adventures”. I decided to take my Masha on an adventure to Sedona, AZ. Think Eastern Bloc meets the Wild West.

Masha enjoyed the natural beauty, local artistry and mud wraps, but was slightly winded on the hike up Cathedral Rock. It must have been the energy vortex. Aside from being a bit slow on the trail, she was a great companion. Enjoy the photos from our spirited journey together!” (Read Part I of Stationery Bliss here.)

Suzy U & Chronicle: Stationery Bliss (Part 1)

Our artist Suzy writes:
“Lilla,
There are some clients who make you better: Chronicle Books is one of those clients. Their process encourages me to playfully dive into the project. We all take our work seriously but we have a lot of fun.

“Masha & Friends” is the happy ending to the tale of a young girl who collected dolls from around the world, painted wood objects in the workshop with her dad, and spent hours writing to penpals on sacred sets of Sandra Boynton stationery with matching stickers.

The Masha set is interactive with every layer considered, including a pop-up feature to display the dolls. I hope the cards bring out the girl in you too. You can purchase them here.”

Helen Dardik’s Mod Kitchen

Kim at True Up blogged:

“Mod Kitchen is a little more subdued than Helen Dardik’s typical work, but of course I’m crazy about it! This collection is part of P&B Textiles‘ collaboration with Lilla Rogers Studio.”

Trina Dalziel’s recent work for Lupus Now

Trina writes us:

“Hi Lilla,
This was a really straight -forward job – they knew what they wanted when I was commissioned – a drawing of a woman looking confused with the words describing her symptoms placed around her. Ultimately I love the challenge of coming up with ideas but equally sometimes it’s a nice change when the idea has been decided and I just have to focus on how the image will look – colour, line, composition, etc. to convey the message.”

Lisa DeJohn’s watertower in Breaking Bad

Our wonderful summer intern Nina writes us from NYU:

“Hi Lilla!
Hope you’re well — I noticed something while watching season 3 of “Breaking Bad” — Lisa DeJohn’s water tower in the background! (the show is set in Albuquerque). Anyway, I got a kick out of it, hopefully you will, too.”
