So, Craig & Karl are one the first artists who I featured on Interiorator back in September 2012. And this is all I had to say at the time: “Craig Redman and Karl Maier live on opposite sides of the world but collaborate daily to create bold work that is filled with simple messages executed in a thoughtful and often humorous way. They specialize in illustration, installation, typography, as well as character, editorial and pattern design.” And that was it – a teeny tiny blogpost with three pictures and I was done for the day.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been re-reading the early Interiorator blogposts. Sometimes I’m embarrassed, sometimes surprised but most of the time I feel proud of how I’ve grown as a blogger over the last year. And I hope you share that feeling. One of the most important lessons I learnt was from Desiree of VosgesParis.com. “Write as yourself – don’t sound like a journalist”. I have to tell you, Desiree, that approach is definitely paying off!
So, there are a few old blogposts on Interiorator that deserve a second chance, a little makeover if you will. The Craig & Karl blogpost is one of them. It now has over twenty illustrations instead of four. And as you can see, I’ve made things a bit more personal. A pat on the back for Interiorator!
