I haven’t got my copy of Creative Review yet, its in Norwich and im not. But heres a preview of some of its content thanks to Handsome Frank, the illustration agency that is home to some of my favorite illustrators!
“The magazine is printed on five different paper stocks, all supplied by the good people of Denmaur papers. To introduce each section five of Handsome Frank’s finest have created a series of five illustrations. The images tell the story of paper from forest to printed page.”
The Burgermat Show is a collaboration of 24 artists, illustrators and designers who all created work around a single theme; the burger! The finished pieces were printed up as placemats and used in an exhibition/burgerfest. It was all planned and organised by my favorite burger blogger Burgerac.
I managed to see an exhibition of all the images on friday at Beach, just off Brick Lane. Really enjoyed it, but of course I would, it combines 2 thing I love! Some of my favorite illustrators were involved in the project too, you may recognise a few of them from previous posts. To see who created the images above, as well as the other 15 burgermats have a look here.
“Each stamp represents a form of tranportation or machinery, invented by British pioneers. From the first ‘true’ bicycle, to the steam engine, steamboat, piloted glider, tank and locomotive, these inventions were all selected carefully when taking into consideration which UK firsts were to be presented as a series”
This month the Creative Review have done a profile on illustrator Marion Deuchars. The article gives a great insight into her career and life as an illustrator, which makes for interesting reading. Check it out if you can!
It also talks about her new book ‘Let’s Make Some Great Art’ and the ideas behind it. My copy just came today so I’ll be sure to let you know what it’s like.
