This month, illustrator Akiko Stehrenberger takes over The Box at The Standard, Hollywood. You might know Akiko’s work without even knowing it — her bread ‘n butter is creating movie posters with an emphasis on drawing that lends them a strange, otherworldly air. Bad Milo, Funny Games, The One I Love, are some of her best-known creations. In keeping with the nature of her work, Standard Culture conducted its first-ever doodle interview.
Join us on Thursday, November 20th at 7pm to celebrate Akiko's installation (details at the bottom of the post). On view through December 1st.
