Lorenzo Sabbatini and Giovanni Abeille

This month we are proud to announce the signing of not one, but two fabulous Italian artists! With varied portfolios and many years of experience between them, we believe Lorenzo Sabbatini and Giovanni Abeille have what it takes to continue their success. Giovanni has produced some wonderful children's illustrations for picture books and also a simpler, graphic approach for the educational market. Lorenzo is no stranger to the children's books either, with many styles under his belt - a truly versatile artist who is well versed in both traditional and digital media.

Both artists are now represented by The Organisation

Biscuits from the Isle of Mull

Adam Larkum decorates these biscuit boxes with some expressive Scottish characters.

This commission came from Ziggurat Brands for their client Island Bakery. Adam worked with the agency to update the packaging for the range of biscuits from the 'bakers of deliciously indulgent organic biscuits on the Hebridean Isle of Mull, Scotland'. Adam says "They have been a fantastic client and have to date sent me over 40 packets of their biscuits to help me get into the brand. At the moment I am animating little sequences for their new website and having a ball working on it. This has been one of my favourite commissions so far."

Muddy Waters

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."

Make Architects

Master of detail Mike Hall completes ten architectural drawings for Make Architects.

This set of drawings represent some of the company's recent completed projects, and have been used in their latest annual; a 10th Anniversary edition. Mike says "Each drawing was based on photographs and drawn using fineline pen on Bristol Board. The list of ten buildings to be drawn was decided by the annual's design team. The drawings were included as detachable postcards at the rear of the book."
