Vic Lee with his murals
Vic Lee sets up camp at DesignJunction to work on six murals.
London's DesignJunction took place earlier this month and saw Vic Lee creating some of his epic artworks at the event. DesignJunction shows the 'very best in furniture, lighting and product design from around the world, presenting world-class brands against stunning industrial backdrops.' Vic illustrated each of the coffee roasters that were invited to the cafe each day - in his own style and using their logo within the piece. He says "I created an individual personality for each one on the day, giving myself one day to do each panel....these were all illustrated to paper, then I illustrated over the edge onto the backing boards above and below."

The HTC One M8 gets a stylish edge by Jacqueline Bissett.
This large campaign is an ongoing project involving Jacqueline creating several fashion illustrations for use in a 'lookbook' for key HTC partners and press. The phone is positioned as a fashion accessory for both men and women, and given much glamour with Jacqueline's signature touch. Keep your eyes peeled for more on this commission...

Joint London commission Ruth Palmer for these retro portraits for Dave's Crackanory.
Currently splashed over the underground, the 48 sheet posters of six celebrities were painted in the style of 60's and 70's children's book illustrations. And to promote Dave's new Crackanory series, the portraits include David Mitchell, Vic Reeves, Johnny Vegas and Ruby Wax. Ruth says "I love the painting styles of the old picture books and so this was a really enjoyable project to work on."

Vicky Scott is back at Top Sante illustrating an article on health.
Vicky was thrilled to get another commission from the magazine and this time she was asked to create two illustrations for the October edition. The feature entitled '12 Health Questions Every Women Should Ask', has had the positive treatment from Vicky, "...using bright colours and uplifting imagery and keeping away from the medical aspect of the article as much as possible." she says. Vicky also had the relished opportunity to add handmade typography to help identify the different elements; one she particularly enjoyed!
