Sam Falconer / Flora: The Graphic Book of the Garden

We’re delighted to be able to reveal an early look at ‘Flora: The Graphic Book of the Garden’, a wonderfully illustrated title that is the result of a yearlong collaboration between Sam Falconer and Melissa Smith at Aurum Press that’s set to be officially launched later this year. ‘Flora’ is one of the latest in a series of luxury non-fiction titles published by Aurum, each providing a broad yet carefully considered insight into a select topic with every page boasting beautifully visualised graphics. Sam was the natural choice for ‘Flora’, with his portfolio of lush, information-rich illustrations and his particular bent for natural science. His artwork strikes the right balance between modern and traditional, conveying the intricate handling typical of botanical subject matter but presented with a contemporary outlook. Illustrating all of the one hundred odd spreads was no mean feat, and Sam found the experience to be a productive learning curve: ‘Over the past few years I have been...

Chris Skinner / Ghost In The Shell / Variety Magazine

Chris Skinner collaborated with Variety Magazine to create an editorial piece of art to accompany their Ghost In The Shell film review. The concept is based around the construction of life housed within an artificial body and Chris shows the human form created from mechanical parts with the face being one of the last elements to be added. Chris Skinner first of all blocked out all the main elements in 3D software, then added some materials and lights to establish the overall shading before taking the renders into Photoshop where he painted the details including Scarlett's face and added colours. As a hark back to the original printed Manga Chris put the finishing touches on with half tone patterns. For more of Chris Skinner's stunning illustration - view his full portfolio here

Andrew Archer / EDO-BALL Collection

Andrew Archer has created the latest artworks as part of his Edo Ball collection - a series of 10 original artworks inspired by Basketball, Culture, Japan and Ukiyo-e art. The series started in 2013 with two personal artworks - The Rock & The Ghost, created from his love and passion of the game of Basketball, Ukiyo-e art and Japanese culture. The subjects mixed together seamlessly and were incredibly popular with the Basketball and Japanese culture communities. After multiple project collaborations with basketball brands based on the two popular artworks, Andrew Archer decided in mid 2016 to revisit the series. Over the last 12 months Andrew has patiently crafted 8 new original artworks to accompany the original 2 artworks. Each artwork has a story behind it. Some are based on Japanese mythology and culture, others are narratives based on players nick-names and some are created from popular sayings from the game of basketball. Each artwork is available as prints, postcards and...

Andy Lovell / LUSH x Mother's Day

We are extremely pleased to share Andy Lovell's collaboration with LUSH Cosmetics to create these beautiful floral designs celebrating UK Mother's Day on the 26th March. Andy's bold and expressive monoprints feature on a series of LUSH's signature knot-wraps. Their decision to work with Andy for this special project was based on his passion for nature, evident in all of his work and in his everyday artistic practice. Commenting on the symbolic significance of blooms being the sole focus of his designs, Andy said, “It seems entirely appropriate to be depicting the purity, strength and beauty of these simple flowers as a metaphor for the qualities found in our marvellous mothers.” You can read more about the collaboration here. You can also see more of Andy Lovell's fantastic work in his portfolio here.

A World Like Nowhere Else / Royal Ascot 2017

We are delighted to share Joe Wilson’s collaboration with Antidote and Ascot Racecourse ‘A World Like Nowhere Else’: a bespoke, hand-painted globe telling the story of Royal Ascot’s long-standing traditions and rich heritage. Joe’s illustrations depict some of the most iconic and recognised elements of Ascot, including the Royal Procession, the renowned Greencoats, Afternoon Tea, the famous bandstand, and of course the well-heeled attendees, all rendered in his exquisite and fine detailing. London-based globe makers Bellerby & Co. took the globe to its final iteration, cutting, painting and applying Joe’s illustrations to the structure by hand to create the wonderful final piece. The globe was unveiled at The Goring Hotel in London and is now on a tour of London and the South East for public viewing. It will then take centre-stage at the Royal Ascot racecourse from Tuesday 20th June until Saturday 24th June 2017. The “A World Like Nowhere Else” campaign, features images and films...
