Martyn Pick is a British Director and Animator - he is recognised for his distinctive fusion of live action and animation, and his fluid painterly style of his film making, and so he was the ideal choice to commission him on these digital paintings for Hellfire a TV series being developed at the moment by Andrew Blackall and Paolo Russo.
AMV recently contacted Phosphor Art with details of a mammoth project for BT Sport - an Out of Home campaign promoting 'Four Competitions, One Venue'. The resulting artwork focused on the mascots of several football teams from The Europa League, The Champions League, The FA Cup and The Premier League. Jon Rogers was tasked with painting each mascot in a classical renaissance style, fighting no holds barred towards a football.

As you’re probably well aware, we’re currently in the midst of a Rugby World Cup, which is being hosted right here in England. To launch what the third biggest sporting event in the world, the RFU (Rugby Football Union) last week hosted a party at London’s Dunbar Court attended by rugby legends like Jonny Wilkinson and Jason Leonard, as well as Prince Harry and Prime Minister David Cameron. Right there in the middle of proceedings was a specially commissioned series of Sarah Maycock’s beautiful illustrations.
Sutherland-based artist Mark Edwards has another brilliant show at the Catto Gallery in Hampstead from October 2nd - 21st October .... His wonderful paintings depict scenes of men in great coats and bowler hats in snowy, wooded landscapes. Working from a former shepherd's cottage, his "The White Wood" series has led him to being "described as a modern master of a very British form of surrealism".
The Catto Gallery in Hampstead, London, will exhibit 24 new original canvases from the series next month.
Edwards, who also illustrates books, said: "For me The White Wood is to do with silence, memory, separation and things that I still don't really understand, occasionally humorous yet sometimes disturbing.But where I once felt uncomfortable and tense, now I'm far more at home with the surreal and intangible"
Edwards studied fine art at London's Medway Art College and then Walthamstow College of Art in the 1960s. He then moved north to the rundown property on the shores of Loch Hope.
Alongside his painting, he worked as a gillie on the neighbouring Duke of Westminster estate, but stopped in 2007 and began creating art from which The White Wood series emerged.
Edwards now paints from his remote studio in a cottage in Sutherland.
