May The Force Be With You

An astonishing treatment of light and depth in this Star Wars art…no doubt, this is the work of Dan Mumford. Dan has a soft spot for pop culture, it’s no wonder Empire Magazine, the film and series experts, have commissioned Dan for their last cover! Jedis, get your popcorn ready for the next episode “Solo: A Star Wars Story”.

Quintessential

Humour and peculiarity – the trademark of Paul Slater’s art. Paul’s iconic, darkly humorous style has been travelling through time without taking a wrinkle. This living legend is currently working on something rather secretive with the agency NB studio. So until the big reveal - here’s the artwork of a job that Paul created for NB studio the last time they worked together, a few decades ago. It’s looking as fresh today as it did then!

Infinity War

With bold shading and a graphic cinematic flare, Matt Taylor is the go-to guy for Americana inspired illustrations with a nod to classic books from the 50's and 60's. This dramatic cover artwork has been commissioned for a special issue of Birth.Movies.Death magazine to celebrate the release of Avengers: Infinity War, released on April 27th.

Boyz

With his clear comic book influence, Coke Navarro has the faculty to tell a story in an instant. Rooted in a cinematic style, we love how the dynamism between the light and hard shadow impacts the scenery and his characters, creating a very intriguing feeling. I mean, look at those bad boys!

Clay Disarray

It's Friday and to end the week at CIA we have the good news of welcoming Lizzie Campbell better known as Clay Disarray. As her name implies, Lizzie is a clay artist. She mostly creates amazing and very realistic movie posters in various genres, generously doused in humour. But it’s her apparent penchants for darker themes which excite us the most! We can't wait to see her handmade models move in animation.

Born Bad Records

Crazy, bold, psychedelic, surrealist, bizarre, eye catching…there are a lot of adjectives to qualify Elzo Durt’s work but we all agree to say that as mind-boggling as his collages are, we all love it! That’s probably why the record label Born Bad Records has been commissioning Elzo for years and even published a book of his best work. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the indie-rock label has decided to pay homage to Elzo Durt, the mastermind behind their branded artwork. His combined reference points of Art Nouveau, underground culture and loud colour, creates truly inimitable illustrations.

Love & Yoghurt

It's Valentines day, hoorah. I'm sure we are expected to show you some kind of humorous satirical piece on the perils of romance because, y'know, we're funny like that. This year we're making a change, getting cute and showing off a spectacular project by a truly tremendous artist. Aitch has worked with Chobani to create a fully fledged campaign for their rebrand and release of their latest product. You can see her work beautifully animated over here. Until then, here's some brand illustration, some delicious yoghurt and some super huge lovin' from us.
