ICINORI

Among the amazing people I met and worked with in France were Raphael Urwiller and Mayumi Otero who work as printmakers and book artists under the name Icinori. They make the kind of stuff that simultaneously makes you happy to be alive and stoked to get back to work, and also makes you kind of want to give up because you'll never make anything quite so quietly beautiful, unexpected and profound. They designed and printed the collaborative, Hercules themed screen printed book I mentioned here (toward the bottom).
