Alice Pattullo joins CIA

A Brighton graduate now working in East London, Alice is an artist with research at the heart of her practice, her print works are crammed with detail and authentic heritage. "I am a collector (hoarder) of all sorts of junk which I display on cluttered shelves wherever possible - I think this process is reflected in my compositions which tend to adopt a policy of more is more...". Keep an eye out for her prints in the V&A shop and Libertys and a fully illustrated Jane Austin book on the way! Welcome abord Alice...

The Big Day

We love this creative use of typography in a Special K ad (my personal breakfast cereal of choice) by Sarah J Coleman. Simple, subtle and truly elegant.

The Martian Chronicles

The Folio society never ever drop the ball. This deliciously rich, colourful collection of short stories contains nine full colour illustrations and a retro/futuristic foil blocked cover design by Mick Brownfield. A classic piece of literature and an essential for any sci-fi fan.

Horsin' Around

Telegramme have begun producing hand-painted typograhic signs. These could have been salvaged straight from a saloon in the wild west and would look great on any living room wall or would make an exciting addition to a restaurant decor. Telegramme are masters at achieving that authentic time worn look coupled with an natural affiliation with retro typography... these are the real deal.

Magnificent Obsessions

Rose Blake's print, entitled 'Riding into the past, with my dad, on the back of his toy elephant collection' was produced for the Barbican for their Magnificent Obsessions exhibition which features her father, Sir Peter Blake's collection of Elephants. Available to buy at the Barbican shop. It's a family affair!

Cricket wicket

Did anyone spot Gary Neill in the weekend's Guardian? His illustration brilliantly visualises the corruption, cocaine addiction, match-fixing, cricket journalism and international drug smuggling fables of the ill-fated cricketers who played in the 1992 world cup final.

Graham Robson joins CIA!

We're really pleased to announce our latest recruit to the CIA roster. 

We met Graham a couple of years ago when he was fresh out of university… (he has been interning for Sarah J Coleman - keeping it in the family!) After giving him a bit of time to hone his skills and build up his portfolio, we think it's finally time to unleash him upon the world. He's a man dedicated to his 90s video games which comes through in his rich, colourful digital illustrations, bursting at the seams with narrative and charm. He's definitely one to watch!
