TONI&GUY and Marchesa collaboration: Hair Meets Wardrobe

LBarrett_IngeVanLotringen

I was lucky enough to work on a rather exciting brief recently. To celebrate the launch of a new hair care collaboration between TONI&GUY and Marchesa, I was asked by Beauty Seen PR to create 15 bespoke portraits for some of the UK’s loveliest beauty editors, including the editors of Vogue, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Stylist, The Sunday Times and Marie Claire, to name but a few!

I tried to create each beauty editor’s ‘enchanted moment’, wearing their chosen Marchesa dress, Toni&Guy hairstyle and featuring a few of their favourite things.

Tom Parsons for Jazz and Draw: Gene Krupa!

Here is my contribution to Philippe Debongnie’s Jazz and Draw art blog. I chose to depict Gene Krupa, one of the greatest drummers of the Big Band era (and arguably of all time). I love old movies, music and illustration from the thirties and forties, and had a blast working on this.

Monsterwood OGN Kickstarter Campaign

MWOOD.Cover_.col_.3

Monsterwood was conceived by Jason Rosen, and further developed by two-time Emmy winner, Louise Gikow (Disney, Jim Henson Productions). The graphic novel is illustrated by Harvey award-winning fantasy artist Steve Ellis (The Only Living Boy, Dungeons & Dragons).

“My experience with creating artwork for Monsterwoood is a joy. I believe that Jason has a really unique and fun project on his hands, which is why I’ve devoted so much time making the world a reality. I’m finding myself able to take all the painting and creature work I’ve done over the years in games, like Dungeons and Dragons and World of Warcraft, and mix in the storytelling skills I developed working in comics. It’s a wonderful adventure,” notes Ellis.

Beyond the completed graphic novel, the campaign offers other exclusives and limited edition rewards including maquettes busts, glicees of pre-production concept paintings, and hand drawn illustrations by Steve Ellis.

Food Inspired Paper Art by Sarah Dennis

As well as publishing a number of children’s books, producing bespoke commissions and exhibiting artwork for galleries, a major influence over this year’s work has been food! This is largely because Sarah’s brother (the chef) and father (the foodie) have teamed up and opened their very first restaurant. Sarah has helped by produced the logos, graphic designs and menu covers. But most excitingly she has also completed a beautiful collection of food inspired papercut artwork, which now features on the walls of the restaurant. Sarah believes that cooking, food and art are very much entwined and this project has opened a whole new world of artistic possibilities. She has relished the opportunity to influence a space with her paper artwork, drawing influence from the creativity of her brother’s cooking and the magic and colour of incredible ingredients.
