Ade Hogan for Midori MD 15th Anniversary Artist Notebook Series
Adrian Hogan is an illustrator and artist based in Nakameguro (home to the first TRAVELER'S Factory) in Tokyo. He has directed campaigns, editorial media, and large format artwork for over a decade and he regularly contributes to Popeye Magazine, Tarzan Magazine and Hanako Magazine.
In celebration of MD's 15th year anniversary, the MD team invited Adrian Hogan and 14 other artists to get creative with the MD Notebook and enjoy the way you can write everywhere, even on the cover. Then they created a special-edition MD Notebooks with the artists' illustrations and writing blind embossed on the covers.
About his artwork for Midori MD, Adrian Hogan shares: "My sketchbook is a place to explore ideas and record the world around me. I often draw my meals before I eat them as a way to appreciate the effort that goes into making them and almost a decade in Japan sushi is still my favourite to draw. The work I make for my clients is often based on my sketchbook work and the small ideas and observations become the direct basis for my “finished” work. MD Notebooks are so light and just the right size, I am rarely anywhere without one nearby — ready to capture inspiration!
