Andy Rementer the impeccable illustrator and one of It’s Nice That’s biggest crushes, has released a new zine, Good Morning. Published by Commune press in Tokyo, the drawings “feature harsh and impossible shadow treatments, a direction I’ve been recently exploring,” he explains.
The narrative within the zine is one Andy is familiar with. “The nature of the images are themes I often return to: characters, cities, moments, objects and nostalgia.” However the zine also sees a new editorial direction for Andy. “I’ve also been wanting to incorporate more writing with my work,” he elaborates. “The drawing came first, but the storytelling came naturally afterwards. It was interesting pairing the short observations (in English and Japanese, translations done by the publisher). While concise, they are based on true stories, whether from my daily routine or travels around the world.”
Launched at the LA Art Book Fair earlier in 2017, the zine continues Andy’s signature illustration style. His works display a bold depth, a method that is extenuated in this release.
