In spite of the myriad ways that the internet is one of the greatest inventions of all time, there are some corners of the creative world that it cannot measure up to. Illustrator Thibaud Herem’s work is one of them. And that’s not to say that his architectural drawings don’t look great rendered in millions of tiny pixels and presented in front of a light source – they do, of course – but there’s still nothing like seeing the huge lengths of stained, scratched and wrinkled paper unrolled across the carpet to admire the incredible detail in the inky lines of his enormous compositions.
With that in mind then, here are some updates on what he’s been up to since he published London Deco this time last year. Sticking to his signature architectural illustrations (drawn to scale, of course) he’s been hard at work with commissions from Anya Hindmarch and Schiaparelli, as well as drawing the magnificent Grand Budapest Hotel from Wes Anderson’s February release.
