Behind the scenes: Illustrator Lauren Marriott at work - video

Nov 2, 2015 Art

The October 2015 issue of Metro was special for many reasons. It was Simon Wilson’s last as editor and to celebrate he commissioned a series of exclusive illustrations from some of New Zealand’s best artists. Here is how Lauren Marriott created her detailed house party of an artwork for Simon Wilson’s Auckland property market feature, Home Truths.

Video filmed by Lauren Marriott and edited by Jack Hurst. Music by JFK, visit his soundcloud. “Do your work, don’t be stupid” sticker designed by Loryn Engelsman.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
