London based illustrator, Simeon Elson, was commissioned to create this illustration for the UK publication Mortgage Strategy.  Here is a bit about the project in Sim’s own words:

I completed this cool cover illustration for Mortgage Strategy.  My brief was to illustrate George Osborne with a silhouette of Margret Thatcher as his shadow. This illustration was the cover image and also used to accompany a double page spread entitled ‘Chasing Shadows’, which delves into the constant comparisons being made between George Osborne’s and the late Margaret Thatcher’s housing marketing strategies.”

Mariya Paskovsky has been working on new collections for her illustration portfolio, and here is a sneak peek of just some of what she’s been up to.  She created this series by hand with pen and ink and added the color digitally.  Here’s a bit about Mariya’s inspiration for these gorgeous illustrations, in her own words:

“The girls with flowers are the result of beautiful Victorian 19th century flower illustrations that I am collecting. I wanted to created something vintage or “chic and antique” looking inspired by tea cups, dentelle (lace), and English roses.”

Lucie Rice was commissioned by the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee, to do a portrait of country music singer, Kellie Pickler.  The illustration was given as a commemorative print to celebrate her recent win on Dancing with the Stars.  The Opry presented the custom portrait to Kellie Pickler at a backstage welcome home party following Kellie’s performance.  Nice work, Lucie!

Steve Moors created this colorful illustration for the spring 2013 issue of Fordham Lawyer magazine.  The image was for an article titled Global Partners, in which 4 Fordham Law professors discuss international human rights.  We’re big fans of Steve’s strong editorial style!

Christophe Lopez-Huici works with a lot of bands to design and illustrate their CD covers, as well as their posters for performances.  While a lot of people are familiar with Christophe’s illustration and claymation, we thought we would share some of his music poster work for a change.  Christophe’s groovy style makes for some super cool posters, and he does all of the hand lettering as well:
