In July I was kindly invited by the awesome dudes of The Silver Screen Society to illustrate an alternative movie poster for The Fellowship of the Ring. I have always loved Tolkien stuff and couldn’t say no to that. Here is my take, you can see what other artists came up with here.
This November marked my 7th month as a collaborator for Wired magazine. The best think about teaming up with Wired is that I’m always challenged to try new graphic languages, as my pieces are usually displayed on subsequent pages of the magazine and we always want the pages to look as interesting and different as possible. My works for Wired are highly experimental and I always try to bring something different to the table in terms of the way I do my illustrations. Below are some of the last spots I created for them, working alongside italian art director Daniela, mixing collages, hand made drawings, vectors and digital colouring.
Converse has just released a map of London we did for them, with some of the city’s hidden treasures. Since the get-go, the idea was to create a typographic version of London that people would want to look at, peppering it with some illustrations here and there and filling with awesome off-the-beat attractions. It took me quite a long time to build this piece as I had to put it together letter by letter (there’s more than 600 in it) and I need to thank James, Keith, Kevin, Amy and Camila for all their help. Urban Junkies teamed up with Converse and are now offering a high-res printable version of the map here. Download one and get exploring.
3 new spots made in the last few weeks for the UK-based magazine Pet People. The idea was to make light-hearted illustrations but avoiding being flippant, knowing how serious people take their pet problems. All the images are to be featured in the same double page spread, so I opted out for colouring each one with a different tonal scheme, using varying tones from the same colour range.
