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.
Beugism was selected to work on the project by Louise Grant — the Head of events at Silicon Milkroundabout — working together through rounds of sketching on Procreate and feedback, with the approved roughs being vectorised on Illustrator.
