Earlier in the year the team from BBC’s Antique Roadshow Detectives visited our office to film part of an episode at Artist Partners HQ. The story centres around Shirley Thompson, an AP artist represented in the 60's - 70's whose beautiful illustrations were found in a skip many decades ago, preserved and cherished before finding their way back to her family all these years afterwards.
Shirley’s fashion illustrations are exquisite and the artwork rescued in this story were for a Burberry catalogue in the 60s.
A lovely story and an interesting watch! You can catch the episode here and scroll to 16mins 27 seconds

Montana Forbes completes a set of horoscopes for IKON images.
The three here; Sagittarius, Pisces and Gemini are just a taster of the beauties Montana has created for the company who primarily deal with stock imagery. Montana says "I’ve always had a keen interest in the horoscopes and was really excited to tackle the subject matter for the very first time. After much research, I was inspired to create unique fashion and beauty portraits that incorporated elements and characteristics associated with each sign but without them being clichéd depictions." See all twelve in Montana's portfolio.
Montana Forbes recently completed 17 bespoke portraits as gifts for various magazine beauty editors. Commissioned by COTY UK, she was also asked to create 9 other portraits for the company’s press office e-card. Each portrait was drawn from photographs with a tight deadline of 3 weeks! They were then Giclée printed on A3 William Turner paper for great archival quality. Montana says "Despite the tight deadline and some blurred photos I thoroughly enjoyed working on the project." The portrait here is of Alessandra Steinherr from Glamour magazine.

Miminne has been busy with eight consecutive editorial ads for Kellogg's. The illustrations were created for SI STYLE magazine in Switzerland, working with Art Director Barbara Pastore. Miminne had to create a character called Keira for the Kellogg's promotional page in the magazine; a girl in her early 20's, who loves Fashion, Beauty, everything hot and new! Miminne says "When I first did sketches, I put a red bow on her head, representing a mirrored K shape, as in Kellogg's. The client was very happy with the idea, so we decided to have the bow in every issue, where possible. We also had her in different settings every month, in shoe shop, in park, in St.Tropez, in Paris, and at home. She was a happy and fun character to draw. I hope the readers enjoyed her presence, too."
