Serge Najjar aka Serjios (Lebanon)

"It is not about what you see but how you see it", says Serge Najjar. More known as Serjios, the artist-photographer from Beirut has a stunning collection of architectural shots, playing with light, shadow, lines and geometry. Driven by the the concept of urban living, Serjios studies the relationships between the architecture and people who live in. Serjios also has a gorgeous black and white collection, to be discovered here.

I really enjoyed illustrating this weekend’s New York Times Book Review of Ben Lerner’s second novel 10:04 with AD Joele Cuyler. Visually reinterpreting another’s creative work via the interpretation of a third reviewer is often a telephone game-like experience, but in the case of a story that itself cites coconstruction and shared experiences of art, the layered/perception sketches below came together quickly.

I’ve included something that I don’t always mention but is integral to most illustrations I work on: inspiration beacons. After I’ve worked out the content of the illustration in sketches, I reach for the shelves and folders of art books and JPGs and usually unconsciously pull a few that serve as these beacons. I place them next to the reference on a second monitor to play the role of corner-men, long lost teachers, or idea-maps to something I’m fixated on at the time. In this case, they happened to be a collage by Josep Renau, a book cover illustration by Mitchell Hooks, and a photo by John Cho.
