Heart of Darkness

The Radio Time's called in Darren Hopes for a two part series called 'The Sensitive: Heart of Darkness'

 

The series is based a psychic investigator who goes on a religious retreat in the highlands, only to face his final investigation when he discovers how the people of the village have become alienated by the views of the retreats host. His few days away become a life-changing reckoning with his psychic abilities...

 

We think Darren's illustrative capacity in creating eerie scenes with ominous, isolated figures fits the bill perfectly. We're not perturbed..

Machine Man

With a world run by machines, computers, buttons and the world wide web, Christian Northeast's robotic specimen is feeling futuristic. But how future are we talking? We've all seen the movies...perhaps a certain illustrator is plotting his takeover and we are in fact looking at a Machine Man that can deliver blog posts on time on demand 24/7. Better watch out!

Mario Wagner's cosmetic surgery

Over the last decade cosmetic surgery has been completely normalised and is now offered on high streets up and down Europe. Though, for men it's still a minor consideration with under 7,000 men in the UK going under the knife last year,

 

Mario Wagner has creatively collaged a couple of gorgeous illustrations for Next, a supplement of Liberation France and their article on male plastic surgery.

New Artist Dale Edwin Murray

Dale is a rare breed of self-taught illustrators, influenced by Hip-hop culture, skateboard graphics, Bluenote record sleeves and Scandinavian folk art... this hotchpotch of influences has manifested itself in a slick but hugely adaptable style. He likes to mix up the digital precision of vector illustration with the idiosyncrasies of traditional screenprint texture all with a sunsoaked colour palette and an equally warm sense of humor.

The Cure

Jonny Wan goes all scientific on us... and it's a good look for him! This illustration was created for the University of Minnesota's Medical Bulletin. 

The story is about a new initiative – the One Health Workforce –  to develop effective measures to prevent the spread of global pandemics like Ebola. Are we allowed to mention the peculiar similarity to Breaking Bad in the bottom corner?!

The Human Epoch

Alberto Seveso's cover for Nature Outlook Magazine. The headline article discusses the recently devised 'Anthropocene', the new geological age we now live in due to the extent to which human beings have altered the planet's environment. Complex stuff. There's also plenty of new updates on Alberto's folio, so a perfect time to have a look.
