Marco Wagner for Das Magazin

Marco Wagner was commissioned by the German magazine, Das Magazin, to do this illustration for the book review of a new novel by Stefan Schwarz.  The title of the book is Prachtrussin und Wurzelzwerg, which translates roughly into "glory Russian woman and dwarf".  The novel is about a couple living in Germany who are planning a fictitious marriage, and to prove that they are a "real" couple they go to dancing school together.

If the book is half as interesting as Marco's illustration, then it must be good!

Livia Cives illustrates Buffetti calendar

Livia Cives was commissioned to illustrate the 2014 promotional calendar for the Italian office products company, Buffetti.  The concept of the calendar was "an ordinary day at work", and the client wanted Livia to put an emphasis on writing materials since that is one of the main products for which they're known.

Livia spent a lot of time working on the illustrations last year, but we had to keep them under wraps under the calendar was released.  So, without further ado, here they are!
