Last year 3D illustrator Thomas Burden created a striking piece of work for Bulmers, depicting the words ‘Live Colourful’ at a festival in large block letters. Well those clever makers of tasty cider have only gone and made a real life-size version of the artwork, which was on show at various festivals throughout the UK.

BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives Visit Artist Partners

Earlier in the year the team from BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives visited our office to film part of an episode at Artist Partners HQ. The story centres around Shirley Thompson, an AP artist represented in the 60's - 70's  whose beautiful  illustrations were found in a skip many decades ago, preserved and cherished before finding their way back to her family all these years afterwards.

Shirley’s fashion illustrations are exquisite and the artwork rescued in this story were for a Burberry catalogue in the 60s.

Davie Shipyard

Davie Shipyard in Canada commission Ian Naylor for several epic 3D views.

Chantier Davie is the oldest shipyard in Canada, and last year they approached Ian to draw andanimate an aerial view of the facility for use on their website and in editorial. Ian says "I was naturally interested since I love ships, particularly offshore working vessels, they are such giant, robust and technical machines, self-contained for demanding work in some of the world's harshest environments. As the job progressed it was clear that other illustrations would be required, they were kind enough to fly me over to Canada last month and I was able to gather the reference I needed to embark on the ongoing production and tour Davie facility at Lévis, across the river from Quebec city". Being on site was a treat for Ian, though having to brave a minus 30 wind-chill and a frozen St Lawrence was a challenge. The reward however was "a dream job for a charming and enthusiastic client".  Watch the animation...

60 Years of the Queen

Gail Armstrong produces a glorious cover illustration for the July issue of "Where? London" magazine. The issue celebrates 60 years since The Queen's Coronation and features related events and places of interest to visit around London. Gail's paper sculpture image is inspired by the crown jewels with the crenellations creating a skyline of some of London's notable landmarks. Art Director Tim Benton said of the piece "We were so impressed with Gail's unique craft. She has created a fantastic eye catching illustration for our 'Where?' cover to our exact specifications, whilst still putting a great deal of her own input into the work. She is a true artist...." The "note From the Editor" feature in the magazine also has a short piece with some photos about the making of the image; an added insight into Gail's creations.

Artemis Fowl is revealed!

Leading illustrator Bob Lea represented by Artist Partners, was commissioned to redesign the much coveted cover artwork of the seven cover titles for the Artemis Fowl series, written by Eoin Colfer. The stylish covers which were mainly white illustrations in 3d , were a very unique style and a departure from the old covers.    

The new covers were launched by Penguin - Puffin Books - with the aid of an electronic countdown in the centre of Piccadilly Circus. The author was also there and was orchestrating the countdown for the actual moment of the release of the books, which was then simultaneously launched to all the many Artemis Fowl fans on all the social networking sites and youtube throughout the world....

Bob Lea has also been  commissioned to undertake the  making of a  animated trailer to launch  the books on the  TV,  which he has done very successfully indeed!  And this is just the start of the  marketing campaign !
