Lee Hodges – Magnificent RHS Posters

Lee Hodges creates magnificent posters for this year's RHS events.

Working with Premm Design for the Royal Horticultural Society, Lee has produced a series of visuals for the various events during the year, with a bespoke illustration for each half-term and for the major campaigns at Easter, Summer and Christmas. The illustrations are being used on posters, flyers, press ads and onsite banners at each of the four RHS gardens.

Kevin McDermott, Premm Design Associate Director said of the project :-

“We felt that Lee’s vibrant, joyous style was perfect for this campaign. We are able to communicate the wide range of activities available at each of the RHS Gardens, along with the related flora and fauna, all with a strong sense of fun in a way that appeals to the 6-9 year old target audience and their families.”

Aleksei Bitskoff: Introducing Pigby and Friends for NatWest

The very talented Aleksei Bitskoff (represented by Arena) is responsible for designing NatWest's new piggy characters, Pigby and Friends for the launch of their children's savings account. NatWest ran a competition for kids to design a piggy bank, the winner was 13 year old Kwamina Longdon and, with the help from the folks at Aardman Animations, Aleksei was asked to base his characters on Kwamina's drawing and develop them further to include a fashionista pig, a skater dude, an artistic pig, a nerdy one and a sporty one, along with Pigby "the little helper" who loves saving money.

Rob Ball for Sony!

Over the last few months Rob Ball has been working on this amazing project for Sony and the marketing of their new game Battle Royale Allstars. Rob said ‘It was a lot of fun finding the right level of detail to describe both Big Daddy from Bioshock, and Ratchet & Clank. If that wasn’t enough, any project where you get to draw Parappa the Rapper can’t be half bad!’

Superheroes: Exhibition Designs by Steve May

Steve May has been working with Discover Children's Story Centre in Stratford, East London on their brand new exhibition SUPERHEROES. Steve created the characters,  a comic and the environments for the exhibition.
Alphabet City is under threat from a mysterious villain and children are given the task of rescuing it from destruction, with the help of five superhero characters 'A', 'E', 'I', 'O' and 'U' who each have their own superpower. They must crack the code and defeat the evil mastermind 'Y' who is stealing all the vowels. The city they inhabit is purely from Steve’s imagination, he also created an animation to visualise the chase through the city streets in pursuit of the villain.

With the Olympics being held just around the corner, the exhibition is already breaking records with 500 recorded visitors on the opening day and 3000 visitors during the first week. SUPERHEROES runs until Sunday 4th November 2012. Steve May is represented by Arena

Adam Stower Sketchbooks

Adam Stower's sketchbook work is featured in the Summer issue of Illustration magazine. He explains his fascination with sketchbooks and the role they play in helping him to develop story ideas and characters:

"I love using sketchbooks. They allow me to draw freely, un-fettered by any specific purpose or the parameters of a brief. I will often begin a doodle without a clear idea of what it is I’m drawing. They take on a life of their own and I’m frequently surprised by what they become. It’s one of the many delights that make me a fervent fan of sketchbooks."
