Doris Freigofas and Daniel Dolz are Golden Cosmos. The Berlin based couple have been producing beautiful hand-printed books and illustrations since graduating from The School Of Art In Berlin. Doris contributed a spread to Nobrow 3 and she returned to collaborate with Daniel on a spread for our latest magazine with the theme ‘a few of my favourite things‘.
We caught up with them to find out about their spread.
NB: Do you really ride a tandem?
GC: We used the tandem as a metaphor for being a team and acting in concert, having fun together and harmonising. We don’t actually own a tandem but we love cycling. We’d love to go on bike trips in the nature more often but our dog won’t run alongside, that’s why we strapped her on the luggage rack in our picture. Read more

Mikkel Sommer uses his distinctive sense of pacing and composition to construct a story around 2 ex soldier’s nihilistic and desperate behaviour upon their return home after a long stint fighting in a foreign land. Find out more here.
He also has a new profile on our site where you can see slightly bigger versions of the above sketchbook images and read a brief conversation in which Mikkel amusingly drifts between surrealism and solid fact.

Jon Fox, based in Bournemouth, submitted his portfolio to us a few months ago and we were immediately keen to get him involved in the magazine. His work consists of large scale, frenetic paintings which demand to be studied for hours, because of the sheer wealth of swirling, coded imagery. We caught up with him recently to talk about how he found making a spread for our latest issue: A Few Of My Favourite Things. Here’s what he had to say:
NB: What are your favorite things?
JF: Well, based on the things that i included in the design..we’ve got honey on toast with a cup of tea…island life (preferably a tropical one), hula girls ..in fact girls in general , fresh fruits and vegetables, and the joy of growing them..eggs (especially chocolate / golden ones)…the birds and the bees..enjoying the creative process of drawing..using my imagination, pondering its connection to the cycles of nature, the weather the universe.and music.. strong long island ice tea…a nice bottle of red…..ligers..surfing and travelling…oh and ice cream. I guess those were the first things that popped into my head and fell out my pen, but i think i have other favourite things too..for example, getting into warm bed after working late on a freezing night or when you see a person bending over to pick something up..just at the exact same time someone beeps a car horn..but they’re not as easy to make into a pattern… Read more
