Two totally unconnected things

Firstly, a beautiful Rick Owens jacket made of leather and felt. The picture is from an i-D fashion editorial. I'm not sure what the 'theme' was; but a few of the images caught my eye.
I've tried something new, with a tea-stained sketchbook page and some white gouache. I really enjoyed it and I think it works pretty well, certainly for a fashion illustration.

And secondly...

I recently read "The Heart of Darkness" by Joseph Conrad and I highly recommend it, though when I read it I had no idea that it inspired the film "Apocalypse Now". Funny how things work, because it took a while to click with me that, while the film and book are very different, they are (kinda) the same story. So I rewatched "Apocalypse Now" and now I have a few ideas bubbling round in my head.
