This is the piece I did for “Speaking in Tongues II” opening on June 7th. This show is curated by Buddy Nestor and the line up is so rad! Thrilled to be a part of it. If you are in Philadelphia in June I hope you will check out the show!

Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.

Jessica Hische is one of my heroes. Her typography work is amazing. To design these covers Hische collaborated with Paul Buckley, Penguin’s Art Director. Each cover features an illustrated letter that comes from the author’s last name. Currently there are only six books for sale, but it will eventually become the entire alphabet. Now how awesome would it be to display all of them together on a shelf?!
