Acclaimed CGI artist and designer Chris Labrooy was asked to bring his unique vision to the golf media landscape. As world-renowned Callaway Golf launched their newest product, The Rogue Driver, Chris put his own spin on the club by reshaping it into the beloved thumbs-up emoji. Chris’s keen eye for detail was essential to maintaining the integrity of product; consideration of everything from club weight, to product materials, to cosmetic specifications were a still priority despite its new shape. Thumbs-up, Chris! To see more of Chris's work click here.
Corey Brickley was commissioned by The Folio Society to illustrate the binding and 6 internal illustrations for ‘The Folio Book of Horror Stories’, released as part of their Autumn 2018 collection. Corey’s brooding, atmospheric style with its particular noir nuances made him the perfect choice to illustrate the stories collected within this anthology, ranging from classic to contemporary. Corey had to navigate the balance between depicting physical embodiments of supernatural phenomena with the more suggestive elements of horror that are intangible, dwelling in the psyche.

A new book published by Unicorn accompanies the exhibition. ’Peter Blake was originally supposed to design a cover for Queen Elizabeth’s diamond Jubilee,’ explains art editor Anthony Huggins. ‘He did it, but it wasn’t quite right. So we sent his to design to our subscribers and commissioned illustrator Matt Herring to do this alternative, Sex Pistols-inspired version. It was a bit of a dry subject, so - in Time Out style - we wanted to do something that didn’t take itself too seriously!’ Did you know that Time Out is turning 50? It’s true: the first issue, put together by our founder Tony Elliott on his kitchen table, was published in August 1968. And we’re not the types to let a big birthday go uncelebrated. To mark half a century of bringing you the best of London, we’ve...
We are thrilled to welcome Peter Strain back to The Coningsby Gallery this September for his upcoming solo exhibition ‘TYPEface’, which will run from 3 - 15 September 2018. This will be Peter’s second showing at The Coningsby Gallery, following his successful exhibition ‘ADMIT ONE’, January 2013. In ‘TYPEface’, Peter once again pays homage to significant influence music and film has had on his work, celebrating musicians, filmmakers and the works that they have produced. In addition to these never-before-exhibited pieces Peter will also be presenting a series of new works; montages of illustrations influenced by self-composed lyrics. These extremely personal pieces will be a first for Peter, and we are excited to be revealing these for the first time at his exhibition. To see more of Peter's work click here.

The importance of craft and making was imbued in him at art school and it has stuck with him throughout his career.
