Terrifying as it may be, Christmas is knocking on our door pretty soon and Arn0 has been working with Ted Baker on their next seasons eyewear promotions. Arn0 was given the dreamy brief of creating the above 3 beautiful, and of course sexy, animals in his inimitable digital airbrush style, with each hair lovingly, and painstakingly, "painted" digitally. All 3 will be appearing in opticians and Ted Baker stores over the coming months. Please do email in any pics you see of them out and around. To see more of Arn0's folio click here.
Tado were recently invited to take part in a fantastic project put together by the Toronto Tourism board, The Magic Pony Gallery, CP+B, Narwhal Arts Projects and Lunch Creative. Along with 15 other artists they designed 8 foot giant snowmen who have now taken over Toronto's parks, shopping malls and public spaces. The Torontoland Giant Snowman campaign is raising money for the Startlight Childrens Foundation who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children with chronic and life-threatening illnesses and life-altering injuries. Each time a picture is taken of one of the snowmen and uploaded to facebook $2 will be donated to the charity, so if you're in Toronto please get hunting and snapping! You can view all the pictures taken so far on the official facebook galleries page here and find out more about the project and the artists involved here. We've also added a big update to Tado's folio, click here, here and here to see more.
