Dragon's Green

Dan Mumford has worked within the pop culture and music scene creating everything from album covers, branding and screenprint's to new interpretations of classic film posters and albums. Now for his debut in the publishing world he has blasted into the scene with magical, illuminating artwork for the much talked about Worldquake series by Sacrlett Thomas. Dan's first book jacket in the series is Dragon's Green, but there's more to come from this new series which is said to be "the most exciting debut in children's fiction since Harry Potter'.

Forbidden Forest

We can't help but share another delight from Andy Singleton's  project with Pottermore. Our favourite and rather heoric creature, known to some as 'Witherwings' but most as 'Buckbeak'. A charming and passionate hippogriff who lived with Rubeus Hagrid in the School grounds and who was a loyal in defending Harry in battle mutliple times. Andy has created a whole array of paper crafted 3D models if you're as nerdy as we are about the wizzarding world.

Paper Scales

Andy Singleton has been commissioned by global digital publisher of all things Harry Potter to conjure up a set of fantastical paper crafted beasts. If you're a fan of the wizzarding world, you are probably very familiar with some of the characters Andy has crafted. We implore you to explore them in detail over at the Pottermore website, have a lemon sherbet and find out your patronus whilst you're at it. That sounds like something Dumbeldore might say.

Special Edition

Inspired by Americana and classic comic books from the 50's and 60's Matt Taylor's cinematic style has been put to the test. Matt has been commissioned by Carlotta films to create the artwork for a special edition of the DVD 'Phantom of The Paradise' and this is the dynamic, and rather audacious graphic result. Top stuff!

Minimal

Mario Wagner has taken a fresh approach to his work and is mixing it up with some seriously contemporary graphics. Flick through his folio and you'll find considered shapes, subtle mirroring and softly applied graidents that are taking us down a path both calming and curious. Thank you Mario for showing us how you keep moving!
