In one of the most ambitious film restoration projects of the century The Russian Ballet Collection is the culmination of a unique, 10-year-plus assignment by RTRWorldwide to remaster and reveal classic Russian ballet productions, and their unparalleled Soviet-era stars, to a wider audience.
Designer Bruno Tilley, represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned on this special mission with the challenge of branding and designing the collection’s packaging.
In a way of enticing a new generation to these old loved classics, he asked fellow Artist Partners illustrator Sharon Pinsker to get involved and the results are stunning.
Each cover illustrates a dancer from the ballet depicted perfectly in Sharon’s romantic figurative style.
As a whole the DVD set look fabulous and would make a perfect collectors item for any ballet lover. The Ballet Bag obviously agree with us as they have the collection listed under “Five Xmas Gift Ideas” on their website
Sharon’s illustrations have been so well received that the Telegraph has opened a competition with the chance to win a full set of the limited edition prints. The prize draw runs until the 31st January so it is definitely worth entering!

Highly talented artist and embroiderer Stewart Easton (represented by Artist Partners) was commissioned to produce a large mural for Outline Editions Christmas Print Sale. The wall mural needed to represent the area of Stoke Newington.
Stewart was inspired by reading that the poet Edgar Allen Poe had been educated in Stoke Newington. The mural itself is displayed almost on the exact spot, where the school Edgar Allen Poe attended is placed. The image is loosely based on his poem "The Raven"
This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.
Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

Chris Ede works on a mammoth packaging commission for the Lynx/Axe brand.
Art directed by Utd Studio, Chris has designed nine packaging illustrations for these box sets which are hitting the shelves for Christmas. Chris has created masculine, urban and attractive artworks and says "The brief was to capture the essence of each deodorant brand logo name in the form of an illustration within a dynamic triangular framework."
Steve Gilligan of Utd Studio says of Chris's part in the project:-
"Upon finding Chris Ede within the www.illustrationweb.com site we were immediately struck by the depth and intricate layering of his artwork. A three way paid creative pitch ensued with Chris bringing a level of story telling that captured the essence of the fragrance and hit the brief bang on. Selecting Chris as the winner was simple!
Chris quickly got up to speed and worked tirelessly both with the commissioning agency and the ultimate end client to work through a series of 9 illustrations Chris began with mood boards and rough sketches that provided the heart of his vision. Then following feedback he worked through the range with creativity, craft and professionalism. Even towards the end when a couple were tough to crack, Chris continued to work with the same level of enthusiasm as he began the project.
The final result was a creative yet cohesive range of gift packs that each had their own unique visual story and a very happy client."
