May 2012 update

Ah! There you are. Hello. It’s been months since I updated the site, so I thought I’d do a kind of digest post to bring things up to date, despite most of it being in the portfolio section already.

Record Sleeves

Firstly, this year has been even more record sleeve-heavy than previous years, with work on The Soul-Saints’ Original Raw Soul III on Now-Again; The Apples’ fifth studio album Fly On It; Batida, Los Miticos Del Ritmo, Konkoma and Ondatrópica on Soundway; and some restoration work in the form of Superfly‘s Henri Guedon and Ebo Taylor reissue LPs. I’m currently working on writing a post about my digital restoration work, which will be posted up soon.

We’ve also been sweating away at Sofrito HQ, finally refurbishing the Sofrito website (see my post about it here), releasing two Sofrito Super Singles – listen to them here and here – plus re-pressing the first in the series, Soweto Disco. Much more in the pipeline to be announced soon…

Some more traditional illustrations, prints and other projects are still in progress – all being well I’ll be updating the site with these included before the Summer’s out.

If you want to keep tabs on me, you can follow on Twitter @lewisheriz, or if updates as irregular as the ones here are more your thing, my strictly work-only account is @StudioHeriz. It’s a bit confusing really but I’m going to stick with it anyway, for now. Oh and Facebook users, please do like my page: – maybe it might encourage me to post there more.

Thanks for stopping by…
