Estrella Party

We've never seen such a sassy and strong woman and it's all down to Lynnie Zulu and her bold painterly magic. Collaborating with Estrella for their launch of the short film The Little Things, Lynnie helps to depict the important things in life at the launch party for the well known drinks brand. It's important to raise a glass (or a bottle) from time to time.

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.
