In July, Mohawk was pleased to host noted illustrator Craig Frazier  for a collaboration involving Xerox. Frazier, one of the leading conceptual illustrators producing editorial, corporate and publishing work worldwide, had expressed interest in collaborating with Mohawk and Xerox on the production of a limited-edition, digitally printed book of his sketches. His week-long Mohawk residency resulted in an incredibly beautiful book entitled, Sketchy: Sketches from 1999 – 2014 by Craig Frazier.
