Jeremyville wrote and produced the first book in the world on designer toys called Vinyl Will Kill, published by IdN in 2003, interviewing people like Fafi, Sarah from Colette, Baseman, Biskup, Pete Fowler, Jason Siu, Kinsey and Kozik. His second book, Jeremyville Sessions featured collaborations with Geoff McFetridge, Miss Van, Devilrobots, STRANGEco, Lego, Converse, MTV and Adidas.
Jeremyville created a collection for LeSportasac called Inspirations which is about sketching in the neighborhood cafes of their two studios and the world Jeremyville creates with his pen. The collection three themes/prints are available in all nine original Artist in Residence styles and convey spontaneity. The collection also includes two exclusive styles made especially for the Jeremyville collection, the Magic Bunny Tote (featured later in this post) and Small Bunny Pouch (pictured on the Tomorrow Forest Teeny Duffle)
Jeremyville NYC – inspired by Jeremyville’s favorite place – New York City. This print is based on neighborhoods and the iconic aerial views with the Lower East Side as his main inspiration. The print features NYC characters, iconic architecture and signage.
Bondi Beach Sketchbook – inspired by the neighborhood Jeremyville grew up in as a child and where his studio is located, the dripping paint, graphic clouds and graffiti marks represent the “urban playground” of skaters and surfers with the vivid colors represent a beach sunrise and sunset
Tomorrow Forest – an imaginary world filled with strange furry creatures, enigmatic bird people and lots of smiling mushroom creatures with a far away look in their eyes
The mascot of the Inspirations theme is the Magic Bunny, Jeremyville’s furry muse for the LeSportsac collection. The Magic Bunny is a whimsical take on Jeremyville’s zip top shopper featuring a screen printed face of Jeremyville’s iconic bunny with nylon ears that flop over.
I got to intervew Jeremyville at his LES studio/loft about his collaboration with LeSportsac
