Emotional States

Inspired by Charles Darwin’s seven universal emotions, Andy Singleton has collaborated with design agency Pentagram and photographer John Ross on this series of expressive and intricate paper masks for the London Design Biennale’s identity. Darwin’s theory stated that all humans show a shared universal range of emotions regardless of culture: anger, fear, surprise, disgust, joy, sadness and contempt. The mask abstracts these behaviours by replacing human faces with more avant-garde paper interpretations. The 2018 festival, centred around the theme of emotional states and exploring how design affects all aspects of our lives, will be taking over Somerset House from 4-23 September 2018.

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.

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.

The Con Casebook

The strength of Gary Neil’s work is being able to sum up any idea into a vibrant, colourful conceptual illustration - his art is all about delivering a message. That’s probably why Saga Publishing have given him a regular spot - in today’s topic, an article about avoiding all sorts of fraud.

End of Days

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.”

Born Bad Records

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.
