Following the completion of the mural 'Us' at Vauxhall Primary School in Devonport, we caught up with Sparrow Phillips, the artist behind the brand Component. We chatted about growing in 80's Ponsonby, the influential teachers he had in high school, the balance of making art and making a living and the mural project as well.
Emile Holmewoodis a graphic designer working and living in Tokyo, by way of London. Emile is pretty busy, often working across three time zones (Japan-10pm, London-2pm & New York-9am is the sweet spot), he recently became a dad and somehow he found the time to kindly reply to my back and forth emails. We "chatted" about how he ended up in Japan, what influences Tokyo has on his art, his favourite snack and of course LEGO.
