Iris de Luz for MIZZOU Magazine


Phosphor's Iris de Luz was approached by MIZZOU Magazine, the alumni magazine of the University of Missouri, to illustrate their Spring 2024 cover.

The brief was right up Iris' street: a 'playful and surreal park fantasy world' featuring bright colours, flowers, rolling hills, trees, lots of pattern and the famous St. Louis arch.

Iris' illustration will entice MIZZOU subscribers to read the cover story which features a group of four University of Missouri alumni who are leaders of various parks and greenspace organisations in the city of St. Louis.

Many different photographic elements and some 3D vector shapes make up each piece of Iris' dazzling artwork, including this cover. She spends hours looking at photographs to find the right textures for the job at hand, and says, "I think of them as if they were part of a digital ecosystem where each element, when joined with others, builds a new character".

Take a peek at Iris' portfolio to find more of her digital collages and contact Trina at Phosphor to commission Iris for your next project.

Hitandrun / A Magical Moment for Barron’s Magazine

Dow Jones publication Barron’s Magazine commissioned CGI artist Hitandrun to create a cover-worthy illustration for a story about Disney’s battleground stock and why the “magic” might be returning to the stock.

Art Director Lynne Carty came to Hitandrun with an idea in mind—a 3D render of Disneyland’s famous Mickey statue coming back to life ala fairy dust. Hitandrun reviewed classic Disney magic samples from over the years—Fairy Godmother transforming Cinderella’s dress, Pinocchio becoming a real boy, etc-- to get the look just right. For the interior image, Hitandrun was tasked with showing other notable Disney characters from notable brands within in the company like Marvel and Star Wars as a nod to the company as a whole, and reminder of the scale of Disney. Together, the images create a fun and hopeful vibe for a story encouraging readers to consider re-investing in the company’s stock.
