The Bright Group was built on the belief that there is more to illustration than artists just turning over a profit from pretty pictures. It is important for us that our artists engage their love of art on both a professional and creative level – understanding that it is necessary for a good creative attitude and rooted love of illustration to carry great artwork and a truly pleasurable and happy career.

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.
