Bea Crespo recently illustrated an interview with the ex-VP of Kodak- Don Strickland.He drew an analogy between the company and a sinking ship, and how managing the situation and identifying the points that led to it -including alot of bad decision making leading to it’s collapse. Bea’s interpretation of the ship , intensifying it as a crocodile really drives the point home!

Roger Chouinard’s Red Balloon Lady!

Roger Chouinard illustrated this image for J Walter Thompson in New York- part of a series of comps for one of their pharmaceutical clients. This piece depicts the horrendous feeling that people with IBS experience. There is always a comical side to every situation, which I think Roger’s conceptual ability has captured here!

Rik Olson’s Painting From Bomarzo!

When Rik Olson lived in Italy he visited the Gardens of Bomarzo, a monumental complex located in Lazio Italy . Created in the 16th century, the garden is composed of larger than life sculptures, some sculpted in bedrock . The one that Rik painted was created that way and is called “Orcus Mouth”. A theory exists that this garden was meant to astonish rather than gratify , such as other gardens nearby. This might be translated as an example of the intellectual upheaval at play during the Renaissance period!
