Artist Partners are very proud to announce the forthcoming Netflix Series of Ada Twist Scientist, as you can see the series is based on the hugely popular best selling book from the series of STEM books (The Questioneers) written by Andrea Beaty and illustrated by our very own David Roberts, published by Abrams Books, this book and the others in the series have certainly caught everyone’s attention.
Lizzie King has been commissioned by Gillette and Agile Films to illustrate the hand of England footballer Raheem Sterling, choosing his lucky football boots. The drawings were then made into an animation as part of Gillette’s feature on pre-game rituals with magazine, Hypebeast.
“I loved seeing my drawings turned into an animation! I am terrible at technical things like that so it’s pretty magical to me to see my drawings move.”
Not being a massive football buff, Lizzie had to do a little research on football boots, as well as Sterlings arms to make sure she captured his tattoos, “The feedback from my first draft was that the arm looked too feminine! (I had been drawing my own arm admittedly) I then got my dad to lift some shoes off a shelf while I drew his arm which looked much better!”
Catherine Pearson has been commissioned by HV Zurich Agency on behalf of the Association of Swiss Goldsmiths and Watchmakers to create a panoramic illustration, incorporating five scenes that showcase Swiss jewellery. The scenes were then separately animated (animated by Messieurs.ch) for socials, showing Catherine’s style to be perfectly suited to elegant movement.
In the wake of the hugely successful Netflix series Pinky Malinky comes a brand-new animation by Chris Garbutt and Rikke Asbjoern. We Lost Our Human!, combines the very best in 2D animation, comedy and interactivity, following a cat named Pud and a loving hyperactive dog named Ham. With its psychedelic colour pallet and striking characterisations this is set to reignite the cartoon heyday of the 90’s and generate some brand-new fanatical followers.
Ham (a pooch) and Pud (a cat) are shocked to wake up one day to find their human (and ALL other humans) have completely disappeared from planet Earth. In a bonkers turn of events viewers of this special cutting-edge animation format will be able to move through the show from the perspective of either Ham or Pud with differing story outcomes depending on which character is chosen.
"We got to explore their many parallel and interwoven paths, which resulted in our story room becoming a complex web of post-it notes, push pins and string. Quite a dizzying sight for anyone witnessing one of our story pitches." – Chris Garbutt
We can’t wait to share more of this amazing project with you in the coming weeks.
Lexus commissioned Chris Labrooy to create a series of animations for the new all-electric Lexus UX, featuring some of Chris’ trademark interests to highlight the new dynamic features of the model.
The animations were used in Lexus’ online advertising campaign - https://www.debutart.com/artist/chris-labrooy/lexus-ux-sneakers-and-bike

Motion Club create four energised animations for a Cheerios and Shape Advertising feature.
The brief was to create 4 animations that capture the mood of a positive, healthy morning routine.
We love using exaggerated poses in our characters, so this was a great chance for us to have some fun.
We were also able to play with the Cheerio photo as a device to incorporate in the narrative - whether the rising sun or sleep pod!
