Midnight Morning is a limited and handcrafted publication combining the distinct work of Haline Ly, Matt Huynh and Will Loeng in a new and never-before-seen illustration series celebrating shared experiences of love and devastation.
The release of Midnight Morning was commemorated with a launch show at Rococo Productions' warehouse exhibition space (12 O'Connell St, Newtown) on 17th July 2008. For one night only, original artwork from the book were displayed and available for sale alongside a selection of other new artwork, books and prints from the artists. All three artists were in attendance on the night to meet fans, discuss their work and sign editions of the book. In 2009, Midnight Morning was shortlisted for the Berlin Illustrative Festival's Young Illustrators Award in the Book Art category.
Midnight Morning is a love letter in pictures to the precarious moments teetering between yesterday and tomorrow that presents itself simultaneously as first, second and final chances for finding new loves and farewelling old regrets. This roster of established artists will showcase the urgency of modern comic books, art noveau's delicacy and the measured composition of ukioy-e to conjure whimsical and fantastical tributes in a fusion of illustration, design and typography across digital and traditional mediums.
