Simeon Elson for Nutz Magazine

UK based illustrator Simeon Elson was commissioned by Nutz Magazine to create 5 illustrations for their Ultimate Premier League Guide.  Here's a bit about the project in Simeon's own words,

"This is the second year in a row I have been commissioned by Nuts to illustrate their Premier League guide. This year the art director asked me to illustrate the players in black and white with their kits in full colour and a half tone backdrop, much like the 'Dwayne Wade' illustration he had seen on my website. The players featured are: Vincent Kompany, Frank Lampard, Theo Walcott, Tom Cleverly Robin Van Persie and David Luiz."

Brian Love for Kleenex

The holiday Kleenex packages featuring Brian Love's work are finally out, and they're super cool!  Brian was commissioned by Kimberly Clark to create a set of 4 mid-century inspired designs, and here's a bit about the creative process in Brian's own words:

"...they had the 'house' shape concept in mind and asked me to run with it. the reindeer went through many revisions-  gaining weight, dropping weight, until we arrived at what seemed a perfect character to complete the series. the elf was originally a man on a ladder hanging christmas ornaments, but the powers that be decided to take all 4 into more of a christmas fairy tale direction. keeping with a red/green palette was an important aspect to include. the also turned the art into paper towel dispenser boxes and are available at target, walgreen's, walmart...all over the country."
