Fred Gambino recently worked with Aardman Animations to develop the dancing bull character for the Colman's Instant Beef Gravy TV commercial.
It was quite a challenging brief to give the character the personality of a hot, steamy, hunky, male Latin-American dancer stuck inside the body of a real bull! Fred had to create the bull in several poses including Moon-walking and the Running Man. He rendered each pose using 3D software, Aardman then added texture and lighting to the digital model and returned it to Fred to add the special 'gravy' render.

We are delighted to introduce our two new artists Will Bovill and Tom Clohosy Cole! Both have joined The Artworks through the Startworks programme so are fresh out of university and bursting with new talent. Already causing quite a stir we can’t wait to see what they get up to.
Julia Whatley’s stunning pen and ink illustrations brought to life to a project for the International Crane Foundation. The idea is promote awareness of these amazing birds around the world. Julia was new to bird illustration, but captured their beauty and grace, with her wonderful delicate style.

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.
