Maurice Vellekoop is a Canadian artist and illustrator. His work has appeared in publications such as Drawn and Quarterly, Time, GQ, Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Wallpaper.
Earlier this year I was approached by Bren O’Callaghan, currently visual arts programme manager at the Cornerhouse in Manchester. Bren wanted a campaign to promote ‘Cockadoodle - The Erogenous Art of Maurice Vellekoop.’
Bren shared with me some of the images Maurice had planned for the show and let’s just say they were of the risqué nature! The brief was to create something striking that would allude to the concept behind the exhibition.
