MOJOKO / モジョコ (Left)

イラン生まれ、香港育ちの英国人MOJOKO aka スティーブ・ローラーは現在シンガポールを拠点にしています。物事にコンピューターが使われすぎていることへの反発としてMOJOKO名義で活動し始めたのが2005 年です。大学でグラフィックデザインを学んだ彼はFABRICAを経て、DIESELなどでインハウスデザイナー、広告代理店での勤務を経てKultのクリエイティブコンサルタントとして活動する側面を持っています。ここで彼は様々な実験的なプロジェクトに関わっています。

Born in Iran, having grown up in Hong Kong and now based in Singapore, Steve Lawler is the man behind Mojoko. Mojoko was founded in 2005 as a reaction to overuse of the computer. With a background in Graphic Design from Brighton University and a 2-year scholarship at Fabrica in the new media department working on Colors Magazine, Steve was hijacked by Diesel to be part of their in-house creative team in Molvena, Northern Italy working exclusively for Diesel and its sub-Brands. From there he sought further adventure by moving to Asia to take on a more commercial role, creating websites and campaigns for many global brands under the roof of OgilvyOne Singapore. Afterwards, he took to consulting for all sorts of projects as a creative thinker, art director and designer.

Eric Foenander / エリック・フォーナンダー (right)

エリック・フォーナンダーは幼いころからイラストを描き、ペインティングなどで楽しんでいました。若い頃に既 にアクリル絵具と油彩に集中し、その後デジタル技術を駆使した表現で広告やアニメーションからプロダクトデザインまでを手がける様にります。現在フルタイムのイラストレーターとして活動する彼は、ペインティング で培った技術とデジタルの融合を目指した作品の制作を行っています。

Eric Foenander has been illustrating, painting, and doing all things artsy and fartsy since he was a 3-year-old toddler. His earlier years had him delve into, and focus on oils and acrylic. Since then, he has developed primarily into a digital artist, with stints in the worlds of advertising, animation and industrial design. Eric is now a full time illustrator. His style and work process is a marriage of oil painting fundamentals and digital savvy.“I just want to end up drawing stuff that I want to draw. For the rest of my life, really,”he adds.
