A Flying Start

Many of you will be familiar with Brian Grimwood's work, a true heavyweight of illustration with an enviable artistic career. We've been enjoying his recent process exploring the possibilities that his pen flourishes can portray on an ipad. His latest portfolio update has been a true delight to consider, with Brian's classic inky style paired alongside his progressive, more abstract digital work that find it's home in packaging and poster art. 


Take a look and enjoy!

Ceci n'est pas une pipe

More curious than ever, our portrait artist, David de las Heras, has struck again. His beautiful painterly portraits have been commissioned by Food Service Director Magazine and inspired by René Magritte’s surrealist painting “The Son of Man”. We know it’s January and we should probably all be on diets, but those are some tasty looking food faces!
