jenny mortsell’s doodles of horses, boys and shoes come to life…
We've got something in common with Swedish-born, Brooklyn-based illustrator Jenny Mörtsell. She, too, got started by filling notebooks with doodles of "horses, boys and shoes." Jenny's doodles, however, were good enough to warrant a master degree in graphic design and illustration, and an actual career as an illustrator for the likes of The New York Times, Phillip Lim, Topshop and even NYLON.
For her latest project, the pro-doodler has set down her pencils and picked up a camera for YORK, a 700+ page photo book chronicling the ups, downs and in-betweens of life in the city - on film. There are hundreds of black & white images featuring the people, places and things of Jenny's NYC-narrative. The fore-edge of the book even includes an awesome bonus image that will officially make this the most enticing book on your coffee table.
