Tomorrow dot.London are working with London’s leading artists will be showing their work across public spaces in the capital including Covent Garden, Borough Market.

The exhibitions running from 12th January to 28th February are run in partnership with .london, the capitals new domain name. To see all the images visit www.makeyours.london <http://www.makeyours.london/>.

 

Why did you want to be involved with Dot to Dot?

I’m a born-and-bred Londoner. My city needs me!
In a couple of sentences describe the piece of work you submitted and why?

London doesn’t have an iconic logo to represent it in the way that Milton Glaser’s I [heart] NY does for New York.
This seems to be a great oversight. I hope mine will fill that need.

What makes London as a city so special for creatives/artists – how does it influence you?

It innovates rather then follows. Often, the rest of the world plays catch-up. “Sir, when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford.”
What else do you have coming up in 2016? any projects/work of note we should watch out for?

“I Am A Number”, a new graphic novel; a Batmobile toy based on my “Batman: Black and White” strip; my 16th collection of fonts from Device Fonts – and my first novel.
