Tate Walks

Catch Simon Spilsbury on Sky Arts programme 'Tate Walks’ Tuesday 6th at 8pm for a documentary and discussion behind his incredible 3 metre illustration of race day at Epsom Derby. Simon was followed by a film crew all day at the event as he was reportage sketching. Following this he had a studio filming session a few weeks later to see his interpretation of The Derby Day, an 1858 William Powell Frith painting. What an opportunity to understand the finesse and skill behind Simon's astute humour and energy, in his truly original artwork. Don't miss out!

ABC

Toby Leigh has got your adult alphabet down and its a barrell of mischievous laughs. It’s a parody of the classic 1970s children’s ABC books from yesteryear, but the childlike words - Dog, Queen, Apple etc have been twisted into sinister adult themes through the illustrations.

 

Toby made a little promo film which you can watch on the crowdfunding page.

Yoga at the Bar?

Paul Oakley depicts the calmest yoga barman we've ever seen for the new year issue of imbibe magazine. We're bringing him out now as a 'throwback' to make you all consider your new years resolutions, How cruel. But mostly because our office is getting pretty good at the yoga / pilates classes so we wanted to toast an illustrated cocktail to our limber studio team! Of course we've always been able to balance a glass no problem, sometimes more than one...

Bladerunner

Sam Gilbey has been exploring a looser dry brush style in contrast to his more detailed and realistic digital painting we are more familiar with. As a result we've been the recipients of 4 lively Blade Runner portraits. Thank you Sam we love the immediacy of these and how successfully you capture the light and shade.
