NATURAL CURIOSITIES

Chris Ede has created this piece for David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities, a new TV series aired on the Eden channel. The art, commissioned by Red Bee Media has been in the Guardian as an A3 fold out poster, and in many major newspapers as a standard advertisement. Trine Johnson, producer at Red Bee Media says: "It was an absolute pleasure to work with Chris on this project. He was full of great ideas and suggestions and he worked tirelessly to get the piece right." Chris Ede is represented by Illustration Ltd

SIMPLE MINDS

Ruth Rowland successfully uses her skills on this promotion for the Simple Minds upcoming tour.
She says "This three dimensional bust was created for the Simple Minds' The Greatest Hits Tour this April. I was commissioned to develop the lettering, working with a range of different marker pens, then scanning and fitting the script to a photo of the head. It was built up gradually until the final image was approved. It's surprisingly tricky to keep the lettering looking raw and not overworked - this vernacular lettering is influenced more by Outsider Art and hand drawn ephemeral signage than by traditional calligraphy. The designer sent over images of the scrawled graffiti on Jim Morrison's grave and the Abbey Road sign as the inspiration for the piece - the fumes from the markers probably helped a little too....there are also plans to use it on the related album which has yet to be released."

Ben Tallon works with calm and launch transmedia awareness campaign Xpress

No stranger to working with some major charities, Ben Tallon uses his skills as illustrator and art director to launch Xpress; an awareness campaign to raise money for the The Campaign Against Living Miserably.
CALM works to prevent male suicide in the UK, and after meeting the charity, Ben was given a blank canvas to direct a campaign focused on raising money and awareness. His response has come from an urge to share the benefits of his own artistic expression, and so along with the support of his fellow creatives, Ben has launched Xpress.
On May 3rd 2013, Ben's company Quenched Music will release an exclusive album from which 100% of proceeds will go directly to the charity. It will feature the best of new UK and international music and some overseas 'heavyweights' who will be announced soon. Also featuring men working in the arts, Ben and the team now have the support of Stephen Merchant, Danny Dyer, Jon McClure and more. In addition, a campaign newspaper will be released alongside the album containing all interviews and features including the portrait above. It was created to support an exclusive interview with Steve for the campaign in which he discusses comedy, growing up, art and his movie career. The Xpress website will also showcase contemporary art, design, comedy, illustration, film and poetry.
Please support the cause through the crowd funding campaign here.
