Aveuglements

"The paper is complicated and abstract, but it speaks of our blindness to chaos and religious wars." Here is Harry Tennant's interpretation, an editorial piece for L'Obs, for a book review by Jean-François Colosimo called 'Aveuglements' - a quick overview, it's about nihilism since the age of enlightenment. Deep!

Godfather

Meet the phantasmagoric mind of Neal Fox - a punk world without rules, where the impossible meets the possible and where time and space are meaningless. Neal has a unique, surreal and sometimes wonderfully macabre way of depicting society and pop culture. Here is the portrait of the Godfather for an interview with Francis Ford Coppola Noble Rot magazine.

Royal Fever

The British Royal Family are undeniably captivating - while the entire world has eyes on the royal baby and wedding, surprisingly few of us have a clear view of their history. Don’t panic, Susan Burghart has taken the responsibility to illustrate the monarchy’s timeline from William III up to Elizabeth II for the Historic Royal Palaces, which will make you a royal expert!

Portrait Master

We are continually blown away by the raw emotions David De Las Heras captures with his brush. It’s hard not to feel what his portraits are communicating. This illustration is the cover of a winning award book “Biography of a body”, a prestigious prize of best youth literature delivered by The Queen of Spain herself.

Wall of Wally

Check out Clay Disarray's Wally Olins for Wall of Wally. Go have a look at the wall as it's an amazing project. Each participating illustrator recreates the same photograph of (the now sadly departed) branding expert Wally in their own unique style. This 'polymer portrait' stands out as a firm favourite.

To The Queen

We needed a King to wish Happy Birthday to a Queen. So we’ve found the King of British Pop Art, Sir Peter Blake, one of the most influential artists of our generation. The painter said he had been there for many of the Queen’s big occasions "I was in the crowds with my grandmother at her wedding to Philip, the victory parade after the war, and lots of royal events" (Interview from the Telegraph - 2012). 91 years old and 66 years of reign, Queen Elisabeth has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a respected figure across the globe. This portrait by Sir Peter Blake was commissioned to commemorate her Diamond Jubilee by the Radio Times back in 2012.

Heartbreaker

It took just 6 weeks to produce, illustrate and animate a music video from scratch…one of the many talents of Mason London! He reimagined the three members of music group “Dream Wife” as robots, inspired by 1988 Japanese science fiction film, Akira. A blend of action and details which takes place in a dystopian future mirroring our civilisation, where the robotic band are forced to play repeatedly in a bar for finally breaking free. “I liked the idea of making a video where someone was trying to contain this energy at the beginning of the song but then it inevitably breaks free.” Watch the full video here!
