Bright Artist Rebecca Elliott in talks with Clare Balding – BBC Radio 2

Last year, our very own rising star Rebecca Elliott made an appearance on BBC Radio 2 alongside nationally loved & publicly acclaimed Clare Balding, OBE. The interview, which took place in the last half our of the show, focused on Rebecca’s publishing inspiration from her daughter Clemmie and two sons, Toby and Benjamin. Rebecca is one of the first storytellers to tackle ethical subjects such as disability and death within her illustrations – portraying ‘heart-warming rather than heart-breaking’ story lines. Having taken part in her ‘fair share’ of commercial children’s books, Rebecca wanted to share and explore the subjects that children are genuinely interested in and ask daily questions about, but for some reason, no one wants to discuss.

Hey – Microsoft Lumia #MakeItHappen

The #MakeItHappen campaign by Microsoft Lumia is a campaign to make sure we all stick to our new year’s resolutions this year. To help them on their mission to achieve 31 resolutions in 31 days Microsoft asked Hey to create imagery for their #MakeItHappen bespoke artwork generator.

The idea is that it’s easier to stick to a resolution when you have a visual reminder and what better visual reminder than a piece of bespoke artwork by a top illustrator. Hey were one of five studios and illustrators chosen and asked to create a suite of images for the generator. The user choses their preferred artist and then creates randomised artwork until they hit upon one they like. This can then be downloaded, saved as a screensaver or printed off for the fridge door the old fashioned way to help with motivation.

You can play with the #MakeItHappen artwork generator yourself here. As you’ll see at the end of the post we’ve done ours.

Jean Jullien – Eurostar

For a Frenchman living (until recently) in London, Eurostar are in many ways the perfect client for Jean Jullien. Add to the mix they’re celebrating their 20th birthday and were looking to poke some gentle fun at the differences between the Brits and the French and and you’ve got pretty much the perfect brief for Monsieur Jullien.

For the anniversary #BetterCloser campaign, Jean was tasked with illustrating five anecdotal observations as to how Eurostar has shifted the Anglo/French perceptions and relations. Jean was asked to inject his trademark humour to proceedings and created a series of brilliant illustrations.

The campaign, art directed and masterminded by The Clearing, is now live and adorning huge billboards at both Kings Cross and Gare du Nord. It can also be seen extensively within the stations and a short animation is running on the escalators. Très bon.
