Commissioned by Strudel, Montana Forbes has created some top drawings for The Colt E2 Brochure.
Montana was asked to produce five illustrations for the booklet which shows off a new living complex in East London's Bethnal Green. Each had to depict residents who would occupy the apartments, socialise and work in the surrounding areas. The results are great looking artworks, which work particularly well in the final design. Montana says "It was good fun and very interesting to make up the characters...the chosen demographic being 20-30....creative and fashion forward but very individual in look."

Daniela was recently comissioned by Marks and Spencer for an illustration to go on their wine labels. She was asked to create this intricate drawing of a built-up Jerusalem cityscape and we especially like how the whole city is full of leafy plantlife in between the buildings.

Lucia Emanuela Curzi has won second prize in the Olympia Illustration Competition! The brief was to produce a poster design that marked their milestone anniversary while celebrating the venue’s rich culture and heritage, with the poster being featured in their commemorative 125th anniversary campaign. Lucia created her piece in her spare time earlier in the year, and only just missing out on the first prize place, the organisers called her to say they would be making a 'special' second prize place for her! Lucia was able to join the celebration at The Olympia Theatre where she has been photographed with her art.
Kathryn Rathke's portrait of Warren Buffett is being used in a very unique way. It was originally drawn for a major Berkshire Hathaway event and now the art is being used in a number of ways, 'most notably' says Kathryn, 'they have put it into a limited edition pair of sneakers!' Brilliant!
