Words by Dale ..
"Mark maker & illustrator. I like to deal with contemporary social issues and love to make work that contains slight dark humour."

"I'm originally from Lincolnshire but have Irish and Scottish family. I now live and work in Birmingham. My inspiration comes from reading books. The last book I read was The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson. A brilliant book.
I love illustrators such as Laura Carlin, Ralph Steadman, Luke Best. There's far too many to mention. I used to collect starwars figures, but I've grown out of it. I dont have any room to collect things. I have a spare room but I've turned into a makeshift studio."

Malika Favre – Budweiser

Beer brands don't get bigger than Budweiser, so when they approached Malika Favre and asked her to design their limited edition summer packaging, she jumped at the chance. The all American brief, saw Malika taking on the iconic lady Liberty in her signature bold, minimalist vector style. The results are so good they just make us want to grab a beer.

Steward Easton label and mural for twisted barrel ale

The mural on the wall is on the outside of the brewery Twisted Barrel Ale. It's a new brewery which has just opened up in Coventry. The imagery on the wall was drawn from an open brief- they wanted a representation of Coventry. Stewart chose to use the story of Lady Godiva and Peeping Tom to depict for the wall painting.

Prior to the bombing during the blitz,  Coventry was a real pretty city with a vast amount of Tudor buildings. After the war the council pulled what was left down with a view of rebuilding it and making it a modern town -  but it was never finished.  As a reference to this Stewart have drawn lots of tudor style buildings based on the remaining ones in Coventry.
The labels design was once again an open brief, though  Stewart needed to have connections with Coventry.

On the label design you will see the Tudor buildings, Coventry's three spires, doves (as a reference to Coventry being a city of peace and reconciliation). I drew a lad and a lass in celebration of the tag line 'more folk than punk' from the brewery.

The Adventures of Long Arm illustrated by Aleksei Bitskoff

Aleksei Bitskoff illustrates, The Adventures of Long Arm (Scholastic), a tale about schoolboy Ricky Mitre who is very naughty and gets into all sorts of trouble! After a bizarre toilet cleaning incident where his arm gets sucked into the U-bend, Ricky finds that when he takes it out again, it's many times its normal length. And so the superhero Long Arm is born!

Written by TV presenters SAM & MARK, this laugh-out-loud adventure is brought to life perfectly by Aleksei Bitskoff's hilarious characterisation. 
 

Gary Newman – Cover for ‘Enchanted August’

Gary Newman worked with the design team at Penguin Random House to create this beautiful cover for 'Enchanted August'. Gary's chic artwork is just perfect for Brenda Bowen’s summer tale, which is based
on the 1920's classic 'Enchanted April'. We think Gary's simple graphic evokes memories of summers gone by.
