Brief: Create artworks that somehow depict iconic people and famous characters that have been wearing Ray-Ban Aviators. The portraits were to be displayed in the Sunglass Hut store in Covent Garden, London, from March to April 2014.

An idea for a series with honest logos, revealing the actual content of the company, what they really should be called. Some are cheap, some might be a bit funny, some will maybe be brilliant. I don't know.
‘ICONS’ is a series of portraits of people who somehow have achieved iconic status for different reasons. The portraits are composed of a mosaic of small icons, that have been carefully selected and represent different events and themes from the peoples' lives and activities.

This is an ongoing project, so there might be additional work in this project, in the future.
Big thanks to www.thenounproject.com, who provide a great collection of pictograms. I visit them more often than YouTube, these days.

So, I thought I’d continue with the pictograms, seems like I can’t leave them alone at the moment (big surprise). This time I made some posters depicting songs, which leaves me a lot of new unexplored ground. There will be more of these, as long as I’m happy with the results (I’ll try to be more picky this time, and select the really good ones). Again, let me know if I’m getting boring or too simple.

This is my most ambitious, and maybe also the best, personal work I’ve done so far. I decided to pick a few bands and artists from the rock genre and make pictogram posters for them. Instead of just putting one single pictogram in each poster, like in my previous ‘Pictogram music posters’, I made as many as I could possibly come up with for each artist, and jammed them into one single poster. There is a total of 234 song pictograms in these posters. I started this project Jan 15th 2012, so I’ve been working on this for about five months. I am really happy and proud to be able to present them now.
The bands and artists that I chose are: David Bowie, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley. I’m aware of the absence of female artists in this list. I’m sorry about that, and I will try to make up for it in future projects.
A big thanks (as always) to The Noun Project (www.thenounproject.com). This is where all the original pictograms come from, and I could not express my gratitude enough to these guys!
Thank you so much in advance, I hope you like my new project!

With this collection of new artworks from early 2013, I wanted to leave the music and film references and make something personal, stripped from pop cultural hints and words/typography. Still using pictograms as the platform, I wanted to continue to explore ways to use this universal communication language, meant to be informative and easily understood, in an artistic way, using them as bricks to build new images and sceneries.
