There’s on little publishing house that over and over again publishes the most awesome titles. Gestalten verlag is by far one of my favourite. Therefore today was a little extra special as they posted my Dublin illustration. A good Tuesday. This Tuesday wasn’t just a Tuesday.
“Gestalten specializes in developing content for aficionados of cutting-edge visual culture worldwide. For us, visual culture is the output resulting from the interrelationship of design, art, architecture, photography, and other visual disciplines with each other as well as other areas such as popular culture and music. In drawing from a variety of influences and combining them in ways not yet seen before, this work is pushing contemporary creative expression to new frontiers.”
The Sligo illustration is available as a print. It includes landmarks like Knocknarea, the majestic Ben Bulben, O’Connell street, The Model, The Garavogue river, Drumcliffe, Yeats grave, Carrowmore toombs, Classiebawn castle to name a few.
Sligo is a town along the Wild Atlantic Way on the North west coast of Ireland. It is a very beautiful area with many attractions and very old heritage sites to visit. We climbed the new Knocknarea track up to the top (have ever only gone the old way up before). Well up there we just managed to take a photo of the new illustration. Then the rain clouds started to assemble. Just before the rain swept in, we hurried down the narrow track through dense pine forrest.
The illustration is the latest illustration from Supertrooper Studio. It features both the South side of town as well as the north side of town. Included are iconic landmarks like Hapenny bridge, Busaras, Harp bridge, St Stephens Green, Kilmainham gaol, Temple bar, O’Connell street, Phoenix park, four courts and of course distilleries and breweries.
Available as tea towel, art print or cushion cover
As most of our illustrations we have made the Dublin illustration available as an art print, linen tea towel and cushion cover.
The Newcastle illustration features the possibly oldest swimming pool on the east coast of Australia – The Bogey hole – said to derive from the Dharawal name for “to bathe”.

The illustration is also featuring Nobbys beach and Nobbys Lighthouse, Shipwreck Walk in Stockton, Newcastle Museum, Newcastle Art Gallery, Christ Church Cathedral, The Obelisk, King Edward Park, Darby Street, Fort Scratchley, Convict Lumber Yard and the Art Deco Ocean Baths.
And if you look closely you might find the kangaroo hiding away in the ground said to thump it’s tail so the land is trembling. The print is available in our online store here.
This winter I went back to Stockholm and spent time sketching and researching. It is the city where I grew up, went to school and climbed over the backyard fences in the island of Sodermalm together with my friends.
The Stockholm illustration features Sodermalm, Mosebacke, Gamla Stan, Sergelstorg and the Hotorgsskaporna and Stadshuset where the Nobel dinner is being held to name a few places. Included in the illustration is also the old houses on Sodermalm and the Mosebacke quarters (where I’ve had so many lattes with friends), the Katarina Hissen (elevator), and the Sergelskraporna, Stureplan, Kungstradgarden, and the Royal Dramatic Theatre – Dramaten. They are now available through the online store.
What started as a carefully illustrated observation of the seaside location in Sydney has quickly become a classic design. An illustrated snapshot of the seaside suburb of Manly, Northern Beaches Australia. During the 19th and early 20th century Manly was one of Australia’s most popular seaside holiday resorts. This illustration was also the first one in the Super Places Collection and it is very special as this is where Supertrooper Studio started.
The illustration includes interpretations of The Corso, ferry, penguins, surfer, coffee shops, sea food and Manly Wharf.
The illustration are available printed as wall prints, cushion covers and tea towels in our online store or at our stocksist.
This addition to the Super Places Collection is the Melbourne illustration with a timeless classic feel. Inspired by the lane ways and art life, bikes, trams, secret lane ways, rooftop cinemas and events it evokes memories a la the Melbourne experience.
Represented in the illustration is all the beautiful food experiences had in the city, the Royal Exhibition building, China Town, MCG, the rowing boats of the Yarra, the iconic Melbourne trams, Flinders Street station and what Melbourne always did very well; roof top out door cinema.

The Sydney illustration has a timeless classic feel. It is inspired by the harbor glamor and time spent catching the Sydney Ferries enjoying the beautiful glittering water with the contrasting skyline.
The illustration features classic city landmarks from the Sydney Opera House to New Year fireworks, city skyline, The Rocks heritage area, Museum of Contemporary Art, Hyde Park and the obligatory fruit bats and sharks of the harbour.
The Sydney illustration was one of the first I made and it is also one of the most complicated to screen print technically as the field of opaque harbour blue is quite large.
The illustration is available as an art print, tea towel and cushion cover in our online store or at our stockists.
Strandhill is located in the beautiful West Coast of Ireland, facing the open wild Atlantic and backed by the Mountain Knocknarea. The mountain is said to host Queen Maeves’s Tomb, and Knocknarea seems to have been a major place of ritual and meeting in the Neolithic era. Today Strandhill is a very friendly place, a small place with a big heart. It also hosts some of the most amazing surf brakes in the West Coast of Ireland, only crowded by seals and the occasional dolphin.
There’s a great friendly local community cultivating land and relationships planting seeds for the future of Strandhill.
The Strandhill illustration is inspired by stories from growing up on the mountain, playing among the ivy clad walls and hiding in the green lush Glen. A very special place for us.
The print is available in our online store or at Shells Cafe, Strandhill, Ireland.
New York, New York! It has been a challenge interpreting this bustling busy city that never sleeps and going through constant change.
I was only young when visiting New York the first time with my parents on holidays. I remember arriving at the airport thinking I had never seen anything so big before. Driving in to the city we saw the skyline of iconic buildings. The city left a lasting impression and when studying graphic design I had the chance to go back exploring the nooks and crannies of Manhattan. I remember just walking turning a corner where I felt there was something worth discovering. Endless photography of details, signage, fire stairs and architectural detailing.
The illustrations takes you for a walk on the High Line, look at Empire State Building, Broadway, Brooklyn Bridge, city lights, cabs, Central Park, Statue of Liberty and hot dog stands. Stroll through East Village and go see a musical on Broadway. Walk past flatiron building and pay a visit to China town. Needless to say – we love New York.
The illustration is available as and art print, tea towel or cushion cover in our online store.
London calling! Jump on the bus! The London cityscape illustration is a recent addition to the Super Places Collection. With so much to offer and with something for everyone (even jellied eel-pie lovers!) a lot of time was spent carefully illustrating the essence of the vibrant city. The illustration is inspired by time spent with very good friends in London, and observations of details in the ever changing but classic city. The London Eye, London Tower, The Shard, Big Ben, Westminster, the locals, the guards, the scones all made it in there.
