After the nerve-wracking match we witnessed yesterday, half of England is probably still wiping the beer off their ceiling and resting their vocal chords. England has just reached the quarterfinals of the World Cup for the first time in 12 years… For the occasion, we are sharing an illustration Jonas Bergstrand made for the Fifa Museum in Zurich a couple of years ago. It’s coming home!

As an agency, we’re often concerned with presenting each of our artists with a singular, distinctive style, however, Mario Wagner proves how an artist can cross boundaries, working in very separate modes, while still retaining a recognisable language and vision. Here Mario plays with space, dimension, architecture and geometry, with each image emanating a feeling of calm and dreamy surrealism despite the vast difference in medium. A real lesson in identity from a visual chameleon.

Here's a chirpy start to the week, take a look at Martin Haake's unique and interesting approach to illustration. We have a pair of pretty parrots to add to his rich body of work, inspired by amercian folk and full of original persepctives and textures - there's noone quite like him!.

Lou Beach’s collages could be confused with a scene from Salvador Dali’s paintings. A strong narrative and surrealist feeling that led Lou to create some of the most famous album covers such as Everybody by Madonna or Dude Ranch by Blink 182. In a completely different register, Lou is coming up with a solo exhibition in Jack Fischer Gallery in Los Angeles from April 7th. “I have heard it said that anyone can make a collage and that it is child’s play, but I find it difficult; each work is a laborious task of discovery and invention with numerous mistakes, false starts, delusions, distractions and dead ends before the picture and its meaning reveals itself. My intention is always to create something poetic, but inevitably end up with a cartoon or fairy tale. I work in chaos.”

Crazy, bold, psychedelic, surrealist, bizarre, eye catching…there are a lot of adjectives to qualify Elzo Durt’s work but we all agree to say that as mind-boggling as his collages are, we all love it! That’s probably why the record label Born Bad Records has been commissioning Elzo for years and even published a book of his best work. To celebrate their 10th anniversary, the indie-rock label has decided to pay homage to Elzo Durt, the mastermind behind their branded artwork. His combined reference points of Art Nouveau, underground culture and loud colour, creates truly inimitable illustrations.
