CONNOISSEUR x ANDY WATT
Announcing the first look at the next installment in the Connoisseur collaborations, illustrator Andy Watt's work is something you may be familiar with, unless all you read is the Daily Star. With his fantastic drawings and caricatures of famous faces, people and places appearing in the likes of The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, Esquire, GQ, FHM, Time Out, Maxim and the NME.
"Andy Watt creates humorous and acerbic illustrations. His eye for telling details combines with a jaundiced view of the world to result in richly provocative imagery. His work is both repulsive and compelling, and speaks to the cynic in all of us – joining a long tradition of grotesque and satirical illustration." Folio Art.
What can we get a talented illustrator to do for us? Bill Murray, yeah, Bill Murray, why? why not?
We've long been fans of his deadpan humour and unintentional lasting cool. As Carl Spackler and Peter Venkman in Caddyshack and Ghostbusters he was our hero as 80's kids, as we've grown older, he's still there, still cool, now working with more indie orientated directors such as Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola and Jim Jarmusch. Bill Murray's certainly a king of cool, our king of cool, this celebration of all things Bill is out over the next month or so CD
