I wanted to divert the notebook from its primary function (take notes, draw...) and work only on the front and back of the notebook. Book covers are the first visual contact we have with the object. Here, I took my two characters, Travis and Mina, out of this notebook, a metaphor to show that creation and creativity are limitless. The reference to this position of the characters is that of the logo of the iconic skateboard brand Powell Peralta (1978), showing a skeleton emerging from paper material. Archival Fund

Ivan Peev is an illustrator and graphic designer. He works and lives in Paris. His work is based on the constant search for ideas with messages: ironic, critical, humorous that he illustrates through his different styles: he has a black and white character work, a more realistic painting/watercolour work and finally the development of his two characters for the last 5 years - Travis and Mina. He has worked for clients such as Nike, Adidas, Spotify, Undiz, BackMarket, Bon Magazine, Fooding, Daroco etc.
