We are delighted to welcome some fresh blood here at CIA. Known under the mysterious pseudonym of Mason London, Joe Prytherch can turn any project into something cool and energetic, referencing popular culture with a mix of sensitive observational work and punchy, humorous surrealism.
Hugely influenced by hip-hop and underground music, it’s as the art director for the online music platform Boiler Room that Joe started his career before becoming a full-time illustrator and animator. His style has already been adopted by brands like Nike or Adidas and record labels such as Stones Throw among others. He’s even proven himself as a one-man powerhouse of animation, producing an entire music video from scratch in 6 weeks.

Until then, here's some brand illustration, some delicious yoghurt and some super huge lovin' from us.

His engaging work is pushing the boundaries of illustration into the realms of animation, with a smart budget too. We love that this can be used to illustrate an article in the same space as a still image might. Good work Mario!

Hold the mic! It's Gary Neill, demonstrating what he can do with a clever gif to bring a concept to life. Gary's strength is in his simplicity of form, using a 'conceal and reveal' effect in his motion work enhances the narrative, often sprinkling his work with humour. Now there's an idea...

Sir Peter Blake has stamped his celebrated pop art style on the hoarding of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, during part of the hotel’s renovation. Commissioned by London Advertising and named 'Our Fans’ his biggest artwork yet scales the building’s facade.
