Gail Armstrong uses her paper magic for a Barnard Magazine cover.
Barnard is an ivy league women’s college in partnership with Columbia University in New York City. The Fall issue of Barnard Magazine illustrated by Gail, marks the beginning of a year of celebrations of Barnard's 125th anniversary. Gail says "I created an all-white cover image focussing on the entrance and frontage of the college. The aim was to make the image classic and monumental whilst still celebrating the college. The completed image has been so popular with the college, that they have now purchased the actual framed paper sculpture as well, to be displayed in the college."
The client says of the image: "People are raving about the cover… and requesting to see the 'real' thing. Thanks again for making this such a success!" Anna Novak, Art Director and Designer.
Simon Williams has the gift of being able to work in many styles.
He can create everything from CGI fire engines through to humorous photographic-led montaged images. In his portfolio you’ll find traditional Norman Rockwell-style illustrations with a painterly feel, detailed pen and ink-look portraits, and hyper-real renderings of fruit, nuts and chocolate bonbons. Take a look...

Top Sante's anti-stress feature is illustrated by collage artist Vicky Scott.
Vicky chose four facts to illustrate from the anti-stress guide; Diet, Quiet, Socialising and Yoga and has used her palette sensitively to evoke the feeling of calm. Vicky says "I'm particularly pleased with the Diet illustration as I was feeling inspired by vintage travel posters from the 20's and 30's and have captured the glamourous, tropical feel but also kept it humorous and engaging for readers"

Joseph McDermott makes retro posters for Proctor & Gamble in anticipation of Thanksgiving Day in Canada.
Joe was asked to produce artworks which had the feel of propaganda and WPA posters from the World Wars for the Dawn and Cascade lines of dishwashing liquid. Joe says "The idea of the campaign was for moms to "Mominate" family members to do the dishes after dinner on Thanksgiving Day." Excellent idea!
