Tina Turner in Gianni Versace, by Thierry Perez, 1992.

It's been a rather slow month for posts as I concentrate on commissions, the new issue of Decoy, my book, and eating my own weight in christmas snacks. However this little delight surfaced on Tumblr this morning that I've never came across before, and it ought to be shown. I consider myself to know quite well which pieces of Thierry's work is online, and know there is a vast amount that isn't up, high quality or not. So it's great to discover this gem, Tina in Gianni Versace Spring Summer 1992.

Don't forget the huge post on the rest of Thierry's work here.

Gary Card - 'Inflate Redux' for Dazed & Confused ipad edition.

An exclusive for Decoy, Gary showcases the original colour format works for 'inflate redux', a series of illustrations commissioned for the ipad edition of Dazed & Confused, originally published back in october 2010 in black and white. Love Gary's eye for colour and his ink use in these.

"A couple of years ago I designed costumes for an experimental editorial for Dazed and Confused with Anthony Maule and Robbie Spencer, making our models into strange amorphic, distorted creatures by over padding and layering clothing with my bizarre latex costume pieces. I was delighted when dazed then asked me to re-interpret the shoot by illustrating the shoot for the i-pad edition of the magazine."

A Dark Fantasy - Homme Style Magazine issue 5, December 2012.

A few illustrations I produced for a Spring Summer 13 catwalk report in the new issue of Homme Style, Nicklas Kingo reimagined posing in Mugler being a personal favourite. Some works are also double page foldouts! Also included here is a look from the Prada show which became an outtake.
To view more of the issue, which features Tony Ward on the cover, one of my all time top hotties, go here.
