Caroline Smith represented by Artist Partners has just had some great news, that one of her sensational images of Salome chosen for the the programme of the Opera Salome, which will be showing at the Santa Fe Opera House opening on 18th July 2015
Jonathan Leach was commissioned by Still-Moving DJs to illustrate a promotional piece of artwork to celebrate their seven year anniversary.
The fantastical image features the two DJs riding on the backs of dinosaurs – one of their favourite things. The DJs can often be found surrounded by toy dinosaurs on the decks at their gigs so naturally they loved Jonathan’s portrayal of them. Still-Moving DJs are currently preparing for The Larmer Tree Festival in Salisbury.
They broke the mould when they made this issue’s cover star Jimmy Edgar.
Larry Rostant's portrait of Jimmy Edgar is psychedelic, freaky, funky — and that’s not just his music. With a life well lived that’s reflected in the extraordinary scope of his albums and DJ sets, he’s not afraid to be different — and celebrates that difference.
A celebration of creativity, freedom and diversity is something that dance music should be about, but is something all too often lost in the chase for filthy lucre. Jimmy’s a star like they used to make, someone with something to say, and it seems that now more of us are listening than ever.

This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.
Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

This amazing book of songs is illustrated by Christopher Corr for Carus in Stuttgart.
Christopher has made some vibrant paintings of the people and places from these European countries including the UK, Poland and Spain. And aided by his own global travels, he was the perfect artist to be part of this book. He says "I did lots of black and white drawings and full colour page illustrations and vignettes to beautify the book. Europe is a wonderful place. It's a joy to be European!"

Michael Tonn works on a T-Shirt design for Muddy Waters Cafe.
The commission was to celebrate their twentieth year of 'serving great coffee, tea and music.' Michael's illustration evokes a mellow environment, he says "I connected with the whimsical and naturalistic feel of the place and based my illustration on those themes."

Ruth Rowland works on the new Bill Wyman logo for his official web site.
Ruth says "The development stage included a range of hand rendered styles, from handwriting akin to his own signature to this wilder version of his name using a dry brush to create a distressed, edgy mark. Combined with the designer's bold background and retro photo, the lettering makes a powerful impact on the music legend's homepage."
