A Book: ‘In the Wilds’ by Nigel Peake…
A beautiful new book on my shelves that i need to share with you…because it will bring you lots of creative inspiration I'm sure… the book I am talking about is an art book by Nigel Peake called 'In the Wilds'.
In the Wilds is a collection of artist Nigel Peake's hand-drawn observations of rural life. From the trees, fields, lakes, and rolling hills that define the country landscape, to the farm houses, tractors, fences, and telegraph poles…
Nigel Peake is both a maker and an illustrator. With a background in architecture, he creates drawings of the everyday things that surrounds him. He leads a quiet life (in the countryside of Northern Ireland) where the interest is on what is on his walk that day.
Most of his days are spent working on commissioned work or self related projects/books. In addition, he provides illustrations for a range of publications as well as high-profile commercial projects, including Hermes, Ninja Tunes, the Royal Horticultural Society, Habitat, and Dwell magazine. He is the author of three previous books including Sheds, and Maps, and he has exhibited his drawings around the world.
