Ebony Bizys

In each issue of Flow Magazine, we ask three creative people: What are you up to? In Issue 17, one of them is Ebony Bizys, an artist, designer, photographer and blogger. She lives and works in Tokyo. You can read a snippet of the article below.

Can you tell us more about your work?
“I make craft books and zines; I host workshops and am a freelance designer. I also ride my Tiffany-blue Mamachari bike around town, taking photos to share on my blog, Hello Sandwich. My most recent book, Hello Tokyo, is filled with stories about living in Tokyo, projects for creating a Tokyo-inspired lifestyle, and collaborations and past projects on which I’ve worked.”

What is your background?
“My work had been strongly influenced by the creative scene here in Tokyo, which is incredible. Before moving to Tokyo in 2010, I would often come here on vacation and my Masters of Fine Arts thesis was on Japanese Micropop artists. I worked for Vogue for eleven years, most recently as Deputy Art Director for Vogue Living. I started Hello Sandwich in 2009 as a means to record things that inspired me; a little place to save everything so that I wouldn’t forget It was, and still is, a kind of personal Pinterest, before Pinterest existed.”
