Claire says "I had great fun with this job, taking me back to my French roots. Marine Bouvier was a fantastic Art Director with a great vision and lots of energy."

Grover at Zizzi
port crane detail
suspended frames

James Grover creates a mural for Zizzi Ipswich.
Commissioned by the Design manager at Zizzi, James worked over a five day period to complete the different elements of the painting. Using a scaffold tower for the high parts, James has produced an awesome piece of art for the restaurant. He says "The mural is a map of Ipswich’s centre, showing the main attractions and significant buildings. There are also a few little bits of info about the town dotted around too. The frames are made to look like they are suspended by a port crane which I was also asked to draw. The designs were produced using acrylic paint pens and emulsion."

Mace Bauer Mysteries
small images for spine and back
Gail Armstrong creates two book cover illustrations for Llewellyn Worldwide.
'Mama Gets Trashed' and 'Mama Does Time' by Deborah Sharp are part of the Mace Bauer Mystery series; stories based in Florida involving biologist Mace and his mother who stumble upon murder victims and then feel compelled to investigate. The brief was to make artwork that reflected the humour in the books whilst feeling 'light, fun and colourful' to evoke the Florida warmth. Gail says "... I worked with a palette that seemed to reflect Florida colours and created the front cover image that illustrates a key event in each of the books. The type and background repeat pattern work to tie the books together visually. There is also a smaller, related image for use on the spine and back of each of the books."

Shauna works with Post-it®
Chalk set of notes
Nautical set of notes
Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn works with the Post-it® team to produce designs for their Signature Series Notes.
3M approached Shauna at the beginning of 2013 with the idea of making designs geared for 'a creative woman who loves the little things in life'. After plenty of sketching the result was four different designs, of which the 'chalk set' was chosen. Shauna has since been commissioned by the same team to supply a nautical themed set of notes, she says "The final for this set is my favorite of all the designs I created. I had such a wonderful time working with the Post-it® brand and creating two final sets of Signature Series notes for them. I’ve been keeping this project secret for over 6 months now, so needless to say I am incredibly excited for its release so I can tell all my friends about it! Thank you, Post-it® brand, for such a wonderful and fun opportunity".
