Beauty Editor Portraits

Montana Forbes recently completed 17 bespoke portraits as gifts for various magazine beauty editors. Commissioned by COTY UK, she was also asked to create 9 other portraits for the company’s press office e-card. Each portrait was drawn from photographs with a tight deadline of 3 weeks! They were then Giclée printed on A3 William Turner paper for great archival quality. Montana says "Despite the tight deadline and some blurred photos I thoroughly enjoyed working on the project." The portrait here is of Alessandra Steinherr from Glamour magazine.

Haemophilia Monster

Sholto Walker has completed a fun yet sobering commission for a leading specialist UK advertising agency. The brief was to design a mostly friendly monster to represent the rare blood disorder haemophilia that predominately affects males. The aim of the campaign was to inform young children who suffer with the disease about how to live safely with it. The character had to be represented in a positive and entertaining way while reflecting the particular nature of the disorder as closely as possible. Sholto says " This I did by designing a bright red pet monster, Hemon, that was, while potentially threatening, mostly benign and friendly if looked after and treated with respect by his friend, Max, the ten-year-old boy he lives with. I drew the characters as vignettes in various scenarios and activities and also produced three four-page comic strips featuring Max and Hemon in various simple short stories."

Renault Olympics Poster

This piece of imagery by super talent Danny Allison has been created for Publicis Ireland for client Renault. Danny had one day to complete the poster, an extremely tight deadline which involved a working night, but with a successful result. Danny says "(The artwork was) all hand done, screen printed, painted. The man who is on the poster got in touch to say he loved it (Mark Rohan who is (the) Irish Paralympic hand-cycling champion)". Renault are so pleased they are also having a print to hang in their headquarters.
