Petra Eriksson- The History of the World in 50 Dogs

How much do you love your pet? Probably quite a lot. Enough to mummify it when it passes? Maybe not, but that's not to say it hasn't been done. In a new book 'A History of the World in 50 Dogs' out soon by Abrams, you'll find an array of facts and extraordinary stories about our loyal companions. The book is illustrated exclusively by Petra Eriksson, who took on the task of bringing to life some of the most beloved hounds of history. 

Take a look at our favourites..

Malika Favre - Warby Parker

Visitors to Warby Parker’s newest Florida store will be greeted by a stunning Malika Favre illustration spanning a full 18 ft x 10 ft. The store just opened in the Aventura Mall, on the Northern outskirts of Miami. We’re told Malika’s artwork is such a hit locally, it’s already been added to public art tours in the area.

Matt Murphy - Johnnie Walker

A project that we’ve been dying to share is this award-winning work Matt Murphy produced for the Black Label and Double Black Label blends from scotch whisky giant, Johnnie Walker.

London based design agency, Bloom got in touch looking for Matt to help them bring to life the pioneering spirits of eight cities around the world through a some beautiful packaging illustrations. Working closely with the agency through an intense period Matt was able to produce artwork that celebrated Bangkok, Delhi, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, London, Mumbai, Paris, and Singapore respectively.

Seeing the results of Matt’s efforts was only made sweeter when we were notified that the illustrations recently picked up a Drum Design award under the Packaging Design: Graphic category. We’ll drink to that!

Bruno Mangyoku - World Cannabis Congress

Bruno Mangyoku has created a stunning series of images for the World Cannabis Congress (WCC), held in Canada last month. The WCC is an exclusive, invite-only event for international cannabis leaders, influencers and trend setters. The guest list is thoughtfully curated, so conversations and connections made here have a lasting impact worldwide.

Bruno was asked to portray modern cannabis culture, rather than the old stereotypes of the industry. Showing the great variety of different people who use cannabis and work in the industry around the world. Amazing work and fantastic brief from Civilized

David Sparshott - REDA 'Ordinary Day'

Established in 1865, Reda is an Italian wool mill with a rich history of producing high quality fabrics. Fast forward to 2019 and the company was looking for an illustrator to help launch their innovative new Reda Flexo fabric. 

The fabric is designed specifically for suits and it's USP lies in it's flexibility to be worn for any number of different activities throughout the day. The brand wanted to bring this to life, by illustrating a number of scenes in the everyday routine of a busy suit wearing man. David Sparshott was identified as the perfect fit (excuse the pun) to draw up the Reda 'Ordinary Day'. 

The images will be used on the client's website, at trade shows and across social media channels.
