Raid 71 & Steve Jobs

We are thrilled to be representing Raid 71 (aka Chris Thornley), an artist with a wealth of design experience behind him, whom after a typography degree has chosen to take the illustrative path. Both experimental and playful, exhibiting worldwide and with a number of awards under his belt, Raid 71 has worked for Levi, Mercury Records, Lego and many more high profile clients.

His more recent fame came with the death of Steve Jobs, and an image Chris created back in May this year. He says "an editorial I did sometime ago has been involved in an International news story relating to the death of Steve Jobs; (I'm) getting a ton of requests for newspapers to talk about it." It turns out a student in Hong Kong created an almost identical 'tribute logo', which has been 'creating a buzz in cyberspace'. The student admits his is not the original but neither a rip off. Read more here from Reuters and also from Macworld.

Kellogg’s Special K Promotion

Miminne has been busy with eight consecutive editorial ads for Kellogg's. The illustrations were created for SI STYLE magazine in Switzerland, working with Art Director Barbara Pastore. Miminne had to create a character called Keira for the Kellogg's promotional page in the magazine; a girl in her early 20's, who loves Fashion, Beauty, everything hot and new! Miminne says "When I first did sketches, I put a red bow on her head, representing a mirrored K shape, as in Kellogg's. The client was very happy with the idea, so we decided to have the bow in every issue, where possible. We also had her in different settings every month, in shoe shop, in park, in St.Tropez, in Paris, and at home. She was a happy and fun character to draw. I hope the readers enjoyed her presence, too."

Clay Pipe Music

Frances Castle has set up her own record label, Clay Pipe Music. She makes music as well as collaborating with other musicians and has combined this interest with her passion for design. Each release comes with a beautifully crafted cover and book, designed and hand printed by Frances herself, making every limited edition CD unique and collectable.

We've put together a selection of Frances' illustrations from her forthcoming CD inspired by Tyneham, the deserted 'ghost' village in Dorset that was taken over by the army in World War 2.

Tales for Great Grandchildren

The Chris Beetles gallery recently hosted the launch of the exciting new project Daniela Terrazzini has been busy working on, the first title in the series from JJ Books, ‘Tales for Great Grandchildren’. Daniela was asked to illustrate the whole book including both the full colour watercolour pages, title pages and the cover illustration. The author John Jackson has written a fantastic set of stories based on the folklore and mythology of India and Nepal and Daniela’s intricate and beautiful illustrations are the perfect accompaniment for such a special project, ‘The bewitching illustrations by Daniela Jaglenka Terrazzini bring the characters out of the page and into our hearts. Her work is enchanting and seductive, and will spark the imaginations of all’.

Glenfiddich

Alex Wells was recently asked to work on a brief for the whiskey company Glenfiddich. A fantastic project Alex was invited up to the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland to create a series of drawings. The various illustrations have been made into an interactive map of the distillery for consumers to use to explore the site and discover more about where the whiskey is made. Having recently gone live on European sites check it out for yourself here.
