Michael Leonard.

 

Artist Partners have sadly been informed about the recent passing of legendary artist, Michael Leonard. Michael was one of the original artists represented by Artist Partners , back in the early days of the agency.


Leonard's influential work, in and outside of the commercial world both in publishing and editorial and in fine art galleries , was undeniably incredible and wonderfully stylish. In honor, we will be respectfully sharing some of his brilliant pieces over time.

Here are just a few of his more recognizable works.Artist Partners | A Brief History 1951 – 2000


However, you can find a great amount of Michael's work on the Michael Leonard website (www.michaelleonardartist.com). From paintings to photography, exploring his expansive portfolio is a true joy.

The painting of the Queen and her corgi’s was commissioned by Reader’s Digest and now hangs proudly in the National Portrait Gallery - and is being proudly  projected on the walls of the entrance to the National Portrait  Gallery.

This is the first book published by the culture magazine; a book marketed as the 'bible of creative advice'. Miss Led's portraits of Alex Gibney and Kalle Lasn grace the inside pages - she says "I really enjoyed working in macro detailing on these illustrations".

Handsome Frank branding & stationery

We’ve been working on our new stationery here at HF towers, something that’s always a tricky thing to do – stock samples, pantone chips, brand identity. It’s a dizzying task. It all began with some clever illustrated portraits of HF staff Tom, Jon and Stuart, created by Jean Jullien. These were then handed over to master-of-design George Bradshaw, who worked them into business card designs, which utilises the Circular typeface by Lineto. GF Smith Colorplan Cool Grey was the stock of choice, which was printed by the good folk at Darwin Press. Patrick Bateman eat your heart out.
