Heather Gatley has been working on the Twinings ‘Take 10’ campaign, an idea introduced to encourage women to take 10 minutes out of their busy days to have a bit of ‘me time’. Heather was asked to produce a range of illustrations to accompany the handy tips on ways women can ‘Relax, Recharge or Refresh’.

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.

Chris King embraced the opportunity to illustrate the cover for the Guardian Guide last month, featuring Ryan Gosling. It's an illustration he is quite proud of and a striking one too. Chris says "It initially started as a piece about his new film 'Drive' but became more about the actor and his life rather than just focusing on the film (hence the dog/Hollywood star in the “Grand Theft Auto” inspired backdrop). Thanks to Stephen Jenkins (art Director at the Guide) who steered the ship."

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.

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."
