This is a really important piece for me. Patrick Burgoyne at Creative Review offered me one of these “Monograph” pieces they send out with subscription editions of the magazine.
For me, it was an opportunity to create all new pieces that I called “Love Stories”, because each one was an illustrated text of the story of someone I love.
I spent 3 solid weeks on it, and nearly burned myself out. But in the end, it was worth it. Some of these are easier to read than others, but I won’t “translate” them for you. Either you’re curious, or you’re not.

The booklet is included for subscribers with the August 2008 edition of Creative Review. If you’re not a subscriber, I’m afraid you’re SOL for getting this one of mine, as it’s not in news-stand copies. But there’s a different artist/designer/photographer featured every month, and friends of mine who subscribe say the Monograph is their favourite thing.
