Luckily our Sarah Tanat Jones was able to save the day and give them a series of informative and impactful images that tell the tale of Don José, a naive solder who is seduced by the fiery Gypsy, Carmen. Sarah’s illustrations were projected onto the sides of buildings and in public spaces throughout Scotland.
The campaign aims to keep children safe on UK's beaches and comprises of a safety pack called 'Hold Tight, Hand Up!' and a music video to support the message. Targeted at the slightly older child who loves to bodyboard, the free pack is full of top tips for parents, a wave guide for children and animated stickers they can attach to bodyboards and beach bags. Duncan created the cool characters and all the art for the different goodies in the pack. The animation was also designed by Duncan; he then directed two 2D animators from Sun & Moon Studios in Bristol with Proximity providing the music and VFX. Watch the video here.

The Ruth Borchard Collection is the UK’s only public collection of self-portraits by British and Irish artists, with 150 works and growing. The Original Collection was the life-long project of Ruth Borchard, who built up a collection of 100 self-portraits by the most distinguished twentieth-century artists in Britain. The Prize offers a unique opportunity for new and established artists alike to compete for a £10,000 prize, and the chance for their work to be purchased for the Ruth Borchard Next Generation Collection. Emily Tull's portrait, which has been shortlisted, is from a series of hand-embroidered works of art.Here's what she says about the work:
"In this series beauty and fragility are enhanced. Hand stitching takes the place of drawing, abstracting the subject, breaking down the features to a more vulnerable state. The thread 'melting' into the fabric representing delicate 'skin'."You can see her portrait "Fragility #2" exhibit along with other entries for the prize at Piano Nobile Kings Place,London until the October 9th
