Joanna Walsh in Paris!

Joanna Walsh has been drawing on the walls of legendary Paris bookshop, Shakespeare & Company.

Joanna illustrated the faces of fourteen English language writers who once lived in Paris , creating a trompe d’oeil art gallery of portraits complete with frames.

Joanna’s work in marker pen and just a little carefully added gilt really enlivens the staircase wall which leads to the second floor of the bookshop.

Phil Schramm For Diageo

Just looking at Phil Schramm’s work makes us thirsty, so it’s understandable why Phil was chosen to create these amazing images for Diageo’s ‘Quality Classics’ Campaign. Phil was briefed to illustrate the ampersand shapes out of streams of various spirits and mixers, he created the visuals using a combination of 3D modelling and photography.

Bill Garland and Schweppes

Bill Garland, whose work for Mother advertising includes Coca Cola, Stella Artois and now Schweppes,  has spent the last few months painting a set of extraordinary backdrops for an very original Schweppes TV campaign. Several arms are noticeably absent in the pictures, and these are replaced by live actors’ arms appearing through holes, gesturing and clasping drinks.  A very complex project but some great results which can be seen on screen now until Christmas.
