Welcoming New Talent

It's always exciting when our roster of artists expands, and becomes richer.
We are very proud to represent a diverse group of talented, and driven individuals, so it's been a pleasure to have come across four up-and-coming creatives; please take a moment enjoy their work :)

Julia Yellow is a Taiwanese digital illustrator and designer. Her playful, whimsical, and witty illustrations, have been recognized by several publications and organizations including: PRINT Magazine 2014 Top 20 under 30, Society of Illustrators NY, Society of Illustrators LA, Applied Art Magazine, and many more.

Chinese-born artist Feifei Ruan, is a visual storyteller and graphic novelist. What drew us to her work, was her ability to draw influence from Eastern classical styles, using modern techniques and narratives.

Fashionable, bold, intriguing, Jianrong Lin's works are full of color and life. From very early on, Jianrong knew that illustration was his calling, so it's no surprise that while still in school, he was already a working illustrator and muralist, who came highly recommended to our agency.

.

And last but not least, we welcome Lili Des Bellons! What can't be said about Lili's oddly trippy works? He works in series which explore bizarre, fantastical worlds, and as viewers, we love joining Lili and the oddball characters he creates. So fun!



We really can't wait to see more work from these artists, and look forward to a prosperous collaboration :)

Thomas Ehretsmann / Celestins, Theatre De Lyon

Thomas Ehretsmann was selected to be the artist of the season (from Sep 2017 to Aug 2018) for The theatre Les CĂ©lestins in Lyon, France. Two directors at the theatre, Claudia Stavisky and Marc Lesage, select an illustrator every year to create posters for all the plays in the new season. This year they used 37 images, old and new, from Thomas Ehretsmann. It was a very prestigious project and we are very happy that Thomas made it in 3 months! 

This time, Thomas stepped out of his comfort zone and created something different from his usual style. He combined his pencil drawing with digital coloring technique and still managed to achieve the same elegant quality final images. 

To see his project on Behance.

Guiltless In Life's Pleasures
 
Michal Dziekan

- Tom Hiddleston
 
 
Ana Gomez Bernaus
"There is no such thing as a guilty pleasure."
- Douglas Wilson
 
 
Gary Kelley
"I think musicians have always been drinking and sharing a good wine. It is, I hate to say this, another form of vice."
- Tom Araya
 
 
Chris Gall
"Drinking when we are not thirsty and making love at all seasons, madam: that is all there is to distinguish us from other animals."
- Pierre Beaumarchais
 
 
Leonard Peng
"There are two reasons for drinking: one is, when you are thirsty, to cure it; the other, when you are not thirsty, to prevent it."
- Thomas Love Peacock
 
 
Dongyun Lee
"Buying is a profound pleasure."
- Simone de Beauvoir
 
 
Maria Corte Maidagan
"My guilty pleasures are the websites where you can look at the fashions and see how different outfits will look. You can even take a picture of yourself and download it and play with the fashions! I love playing with these websites to see what I can learn."
- Indra Nooyi
 
 
Guy Stauber
"I have a reputation for drinking a lot. Indeed, I drink quite much. However, I give it up when I wish to do so. I never, ever drink while on duty. The drinking is only for my pleasure. I do not remember neglecting my duties because of drinking even once."
- Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
 
 
Mark Summers
"If you resolve to give up smoking, drinking and loving, you don't actually live longer; it just seems longer."
- Clement Freud
 
 
Mark T Smith
"As far as pleasures, you've got to have limits. You shouldn't have too much of good things, so you'll always have a desire for more and you won't get bored."
- Compay Segundo
 
 
Charles Chaisson
"Put this restriction on your pleasures, be cautious that they injure no being that lives."
- John Zimmerman
 
 
James Bennett
"I draw pleasure in governance, in doing new things and bringing people together. That pleasure is all I need from life."
- Narendra Modi
 
 
Julia Yellow
"Pleasure is a necessary reciprocal. No one feels, who does not at the same time give it. To be pleased, one must please. What pleases you in others, will in general please them in you."
- Philip Stanhope, 4th Earl of Chesterfield
 
 
Tim Bower
"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading."
- Henry Youngman
 
 
Gaston Mendieta
"I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake."
- Lewis Black
 
 
Ricardo Martinez
"Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre."
- Andy Serkis
 
 
Daniel Goldfarb
"According to the perverse aesthetics of artistic guilty pleasure, certain books and movies are so bad - so crudely conceived, despicably motivated and atrociously executed - that they're actually rather good."
- Walter Kirn
 
 
Bill Sanderson
"I don't believe in the term 'guilty pleasure,' because it implies I should feel ashamed for liking something. A real guilty pleasure would be, I don't know, taking gratification in some stranger's ghastly death or something - which I guess I do enjoy, because I read a ton of true crime."
- Bill Hader
 
 
Rob Rey
"I have no inhibitions about smoking or drinking, but I think too much of my voice to place it in jeopardy. I have spent many good years in training and cultivating it, and I would be foolish to do anything which might impair or ruin it."
- Jeanette MacDonald
 
 
Borja Bonaque
"It's a guilty pleasure that things I loved as a kid I now have the power to put into motion and up on screen."
- Dave Filoni
 
 
Bruce Hutchison
"I'm addicted to tattoos. I can't stop; I love them."
- Adrianne Palicki
 
 
Maciej Frolow

- Tom Felton
 
 
Thomas Ehretsmann
"Whoever said money can't buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping."
- Bo Derek
 
 
Niklas Asker
"I have a sweet tooth. Milk chocolate with the caramel fillings - that's my guilty pleasure right there. But I think that's all right; we have to let ourselves indulge sometimes."
- Caroline Wozniacki
 
 
Jason Seiler
"I am a gourmand. I like to eat. When I have something that I like, I tend to have too much of it. That is a guilty pleasure."
- Joel Robuchon
 
 
Eric Drooker
"There is a guilty pleasure in being rude and knowing that it's acting rather than you. But you get the same release as if you were being rude in life."
- Laurence Fox
 
 
Piotr Jablonski
"I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the day he killed himself."
- Johnny Carson
