Congratulations Greg McIndoe on being longlisted in the World Illustration Awards and featuring on the Creative Boom Podcast!
What a week it’s been for Startworks artist Greg McIndoe (AKA Headless Greg)! Greg was invited to chat on the latest Creative Boom Podcast , where he discusses starting his own business, social media, and the importance of recognising and reconciling struggle. It’s a really candid and thoughtful interview and definitely something we would recommend listening to whether you’re a recent graduate or established in your creative career.
On top of that, Greg has been long-listed in the World Illustration Awards in the new talent section of the alternative publishing category for his book he worked on his final year of university, Wilson Strange; a fantastic exploration of mental health through the eyes of the titular character.
With all this happening, we can’t wait to see where Greg will go next and how his talent will continue to flourish and be recognised. Congratulations Greg!

Laurindo Feliciano is exhibiting all across Paris in a city-wide curated event by Mika and JC Deceaux
Laurindo Feliciano has been invited by British poster Mika, to be one of ten artists who will exhibit their work in public spaces all across Paris. Temporarily transforming the city into an open-air art gallery, Laurindo and the other artists work can be seen across 2500 sights, including billboards, flags and Morris columns, giving the city a fresh sense of creative vitality.
Laurindo’s piece is inspired by the surrealism movement and the posters of the Belle Epoque, featuring other-worldly heads gazing out of columns while we view the images as they are mounted to the Morris columns across Paris; an incredible contribution to a one-of-a-kind exhibition.
