Illustration: Merijn Hos’ new collection of riso prints is very, very good

I’m Ghost, the beautiful new collection of risograph prints by illustrator Merijn Hos, lives fully up to its name. Opening it is like peeping into the brain of an artist who continually sees characters in the most absurd of places, so it’s appropriate that the tomato-red prints make for something of a “spot the face” game, with tiny little googly eyes peeping out from candles, suspicious looking noses etched into teacups and what seems be a face buried in a bundle of foliage. Strangely entrancing and weird in the very best best way – and we wouldn’t expect anything less from Merijn.
