Sophie Black X The Saponifist

Twas a girl with eyes of stark
Contradictions that invite remarks
Cobwebs of wild hair
Giggles with impish flair
Sophie Black, see you in the dark

A collaboration with The Saponifist, who specializes in formulating cold processsoaps that are free from synthetic additives with the best botanicals.

Sophie Black goes Absolut Bloody.

A limited edition collectible conceived from my collaboration with Absolut Vodka, to honour the classic cocktail Bloody Mary with its premium quality to bring about the brand promise of “IN AN ABSOLUT WORLD, Every Drink is an Exceptional Experience”. Playing on the well-known Bloody Mary legend, my design of this multifaceted handheld mirror reflects my fascinations with dark, quirky, mysterious yet beautiful essences exuded by both Bloody Mary and Sophie Black.

My special thanks go to Maybelline Tan, Justine Lee & Cheong Huey Yiang.

A friendly interview by ThunderChunky

I enjoyed the questions prepared by Stephan Chan (which himself is a great illustrator/graphic designer too, based in liverpool). Really appreciate his effort of doing research about my background before throwing me those funny questions. This interview helped me understand myself better. (Yup yup it made me THINK, once in a blue moon...)

see you in the dark :: Sophie Black's 13 treasured documentation

#1. “This picture was taken when I first met Black Hair. We clicked immediately. I invited her to climb on my head and keep me company. Luckily for both of us, she agreed.”

#2. “This is the first time Black Hair and I went for Hanami (sakura viewing) together. Not a surprise that she loves sakura...because I love it too!”

#3. “Kuma Chan is my friend. She looks slutty but in fact she’s a shy baby... Uhumm... well... like me.”

#4. “Ms. Karasu is such a diva. I only befriended her because we both think that black is the coolest colour there is.”

#5. “Ms. Kurokuro hates it when I stick straws into her territory. I just like seeing her panic like a mad fish. But I have to admit that the way she sways in the water is very stylish.”

#6. “Ms. Fukurou is my kaki with whom I watch the moon and the stars. Judging from her expression in this picture, I bet she has never seen a dandelion before although she denies it.”

#7. “In this picture, Black Hair and I are trying to imitate an ice-cream. It’s the perfect hiding place on a hot summer’s day, don’t you agree?”

#8.“Black Hair and I drank a little too much. We were smashed, but not so smashed that we forgot to do our leg lifts... they help keep our body in perfect physical shape.”

#9.“I find it hard to fart while wearing a thong. All you girls out there, don’t you think so too?”

#10.“I know everyone is attracted to me, but I HATE it when flies hover around me. Can you just tell them to f*** off!”

#11. “I met Mr. Daruma in a heavy downpour. I didn’t know he was made for making wishes. Errm... Mr. Daruma, my apologies for being so rude. Will you please grant me a wish?”

#12. “Whenever Teru Bozu fails to bring me sunshine, she lets me hide inside of her so that I may admire the beauty of raindrops.”

#13. “I hate it when I cry over silly things...I just can’t help it. This is the ugliest picture of me, and I promise there won’t be a second one.”
