TungusTkan’ presents: Torrent de Bites kilts!

Ilan is part of Torrent de Bites (VJ Decrepticon and DJ Schnautzi). Here is their demo … (I had my part in designing the nice logo.)

They started out as a completely improvised last-minute arrangement due to a lineup change during the Mapping festival in Geneva 2009, but everyone was so excited about it that they in fact didn’t split up immediately afterwards. Now they have a gig coming up at Lunchmeat in Prague, and they need nice new outfits. So I made them pretty kilts in silk brocade. The fabric is lighter than normal kilt fabric, so they are quite bouncy! Can’t wait to see the footage of their performance …


The kilts close with velcro and a safety pin, and they also have belt loops, mostly so you can hang them up for storage to avoid damaging the pleats, but of course also for a belt or sash if the gentlemen should like that.

And of course they have the TungusTkan’ label:

Here is a drawing I made for a video Ilan is making.
The wing is in a separate layer so another one can be added on the piggy’s right side, and they can be animated.

A screenshot from the video:

Ilan was all like “You know you will get full credit, right?” and “See how easily you too can make animations like this?”, and I was all like “So what?” and “Yeah, whatever.”
I guess I don’t take this very seriously.


It’s been out for a little while already, but the site is only now finally presentable, so I can link to it.

I made the graphic design of this book in collaboration with the author/publisher Quentin Duclos and associates. It’s a hilarious and insane work, hard to describe with words. If you can read French, check it out. If you’re in Berlin you can browse and buy it at Le Petit Mignon (Flughafenstr. 38, Neukölln).

I also designed the website of the publishing company.
