    Tom Haugomat – Shelter

    We were delighted to once again be asked to contribute to Shelter‘s newspaper ‘here’ this month, with Tom Haugomat supplying the front cover art.

    Tom’s cover cleverly depicts the different fictional spaces in which we live and exist set through the day and into the evening. The artwork is a reflection of a feature from the magazine where readers were invited to submit a photo of the view from their window, Tom was tasked with reversing and illustrating these views to capture a still image of the different lives people lead.

    If that wasn’t enough David Sparshott was also able to provide some of his hand drawn magic for another feature about soaring prices in investing and buying homes in New Zealand, Germany and Hong Kong which we think turned out rather nice.

    New Signing – Guillaume Kurkdjian

    Here at HF Towers we spend a lot of time looking at illustration. So much so, it takes something really special to cut through and make us stand up and take notice. Earlier last month we had just that reaction when we chanced upon the work of Guillaume Kurkdjian. Hearts pounding with illustration love and heads dizzy with excitement we picked up the phone and were delighted to discover that Guillaume is just as nice as he is talented.

    Illustrator, animator, artist. Guillaume’s little geometric worlds really are something to behold and we can’t wait to start working with him. So come on, form and orderly queue, who’s first?

    Emma Kelly – 45 Jermyn Street

    We’ve been busy working away this summer helping Otherway London create a beautiful new brand for Fortnum & Mason. The historic Fortnum & Mason restaurant has been transformed and renamed 45 Jerymn Street. As part of the rebrand process, Otherway commissioned Emma Kelly to create an illustration of the building’s beautiful façade. Initially drafted in pencil, Emma then inked up the detailed drawings before applying a watercolour wash to bring out the striking orange awnings.

    Sarah Maycock – RFU Rugby World Cup 2015 Launch Party

    As you’re probably well aware, we’re currently in the midst of a Rugby World Cup, which is being hosted right here in England. To launch what the third biggest sporting event in the world, the RFU (Rugby Football Union) last week hosted a party at London’s Dunbar Court attended by rugby legends like Jonny Wilkinson and Jason Leonard, as well as Prince Harry and Prime Minister David Cameron. Right there in the middle of proceedings was a specially commissioned series of Sarah Maycock’s beautiful illustrations.

    Sarah was commissioned by Heavenly London to paint four variants of the iconic English rose. The imagery was used as the backdrop for the prestigious aforementioned speakers and throughout the night.

    MaricorMaricar – “Graffitees”

    We never tire of the wonderful work our illustrators come up with. One recent highlight is this MaricorMaricar collaboration with Stephen Cross and Simon Connor on a project called ‘Graffitees’.

    The project is all about beautifully embroidered patches that compliment and interact with existing famous clothing logos. The concept was the brainchild of Stephen and Simon who originally thought it was a great way to commemorate the late Steve Irwin but found that the project could go beyond that into something bigger. It would allow new narratives, statements and an inventive way to have some fun with iconic brand logos.

    Each patch was skillfully created by hand as per usual by our talented duo.
