Daniel Morgenstern has been producing his wonderful portraits of well-known personalities for many years, both with collage and digitally, and his work has been seen in most of the mainstream magazines and newspapers worldwide. Here is a selection of his recent very topical pieces.
Matthew Laznicka was thrilled with his commission from Hearst Publishing’s Popular Mechanics.
Originally commissioned as an editorial illustration, the success of the image meant the magazine decided to use it for the May 2011 cover. Matthew says “It had always been my dream to be on the cover. My father and grandfather were always subscribers and I loved as a child going through the old box my grandad had dating back to the 40's.”
