Following yesterday’s from Tokyo, today’s HF advent calendar image is another long distance affair. Jordan Metcalf is wishing us a “Merry Christmas Ya’ll” all the way from Cape Town.
Thomas Danthony recently created the Space themed covert art and editorial feature illustrations for Norwegian Airlines in-flight title, N-magazine.
It marks the end of a great year for Thomas who since being named our Handsome Future in January has gone on to work with some amazing clients and work on numerous magazine covers. We’re delighted to announce Thomas is now signed up with HF full-time, so you’ll be seeing much more from him in the future.
Today’s calendar image comes to us all the way from Tokyo and holds more than a hint of Japanese influence. British illustrator, Andrew Joyce, is based in Tokyo and his surroundings are a constant feature of his work.
Let’s hope you’ve all been good boys and girls this year as you wouldn’t want to mess with Samurai Santa.
Day 10 of our illustrated countdown to Christmas brings this rather beautiful winter woodland scene by Jonathan Burton.
The illustration was commissioned as the cover art for the Egmont UK title ’Little House in the Big Woods’. Looks like the perfect fireside read to us!
Readers of the Guardian were treated to a series of illustrations by Paul Thurlby this weekend, supporting an article about therapy. The Guardian design team cleverly merged Paul’s work with the headline to make striking opening spread.
