Nigel Peake at Needles and Pens in San FranciscoJuxtapoz // Friday, 13 May 2011
Illustrator Nigel Peake will open a new show, In the Wilds, at Needles and Pens in San Francisco tonight, Friday, May 13. The show will also be a book release for Peake's new book with Princeton Architectural Press, titled, as well, In the Wilds.
Needles and Pens describes Peake as " both a maker and an illustrator. With a background in architecture, he creates drawings of the everyday things that surrounds him. He leads a quiet life (in the countryside of Northern Ireland) where the interest is on what is on his walk that day. Most of his days are spent working on commissioned work or self related projects/books. In addition, he provides illustrations for a range of publications as well as high-profile commercial projects, including Hermes, Ninja Tunes, the Royal Horticultural Society, Habitat, and Dwell magazine. He is the author of three previous books including Sheds, and Maps, and he has exhibited his drawings around the world."
