Hong Kong

Quirky and humorous, yet flawless in style, it’s safe to say we all admire Martin Haake’s tenacity. Martin loves playing with scale and perspective, and there is something very charming about it. This Hong Kong map is from his “City Atlas” book, can you spot the wishing tree?

App Store

Nowadays, there is an app for pretty much everything, but an app featured with Ben Fearnley’s work is pretty unique! Our CGI whiz has been commission by Apple, hard to escalate from here! The first illustration was created for an app used by HTML phobic - the concept was to create a mass mix of unorganised code that would then visually appear to be organised as it passes through the app icon shape, hence the use of the app simplifying the process of coding. The second illustration was created for an App used by apprentice artists, representing a pandora box as a design motif to express the creative world that is constantly pouring out ideas. Wrap you mind around that.

Aveuglements

"The paper is complicated and abstract, but it speaks of our blindness to chaos and religious wars." Here is Harry Tennant's interpretation, an editorial piece for L'Obs, for a book review by Jean-François Colosimo called 'Aveuglements' - a quick overview, it's about nihilism since the age of enlightenment. Deep!

ABC

If there isn’t a Mick Marston Fan Club, there should be, what’s not to like? Endless creativity and a touch of humour make the perfect equation for his amazing bold illustrations. Mick has been kind enough to organise all his work by alphabetic order, so here is the letter C, for very clever illustration.

Dive Into Belmond

You need a perfect balance of an Art Deco style, with a vintage touch and a modern twist to get all the refinement of Mads Berg’s nostalgic and cheering illustrations. Mads has been busy creating this series of posters for the hotel brand Belmond promoting their pools across their hotel complexes. It’s hard to resist the envy of a fresh mojito in an infinity-edge pool.

Outlaw

Pointless or necessary, dangerous or inefficient, some laws are just absurd. Stephen Collins has illustrated the craziest laws around the world for Reader’s Digest - a combination of a witty mind and flowing pen create these results! Did you know that the Swiss are allowed to hike naked or that aliens are forbidden to land in vineyards? On another note, although Stephen is best known for his comics, he has other tricks in his hat... He will be publishing his second book “Baby’s first bank Heist” in June - stay tuned!
