The Texas advertising world loves our scratchboard artists! Ricardo Martinez's illustration for Tamarack Agency also stuck gold! Tamarack Agency won two gold medals one for Lights Magazine and one for the cover of Lights that the Ricardo illustrated, a portrait of Bran Ferren, at the 2016 Dallas Addys! Beautiful piece! Congrats!
Back in 2015 and continuing into this year, Mark Summers has been working with Richards/Carlberg to illustrate for a massive campaign for a Houston-area medical university system. Recently the American Advertising Federation held the award ceremony in Houston and the campaign came out in shining gold with medals all around! This campaign won a gold medal for a single illustration, a gold medal for a series of illustrations, and another gold for an animated tv spot, which featured one of Mark's portraits! So awesome! Congrats Mark and Richards/Carlberg!

Last week, we had the pleasure of sitting down with Mark Summers while he was visiting New York. It's always such a treat to meet the artists in person and get to ask them all sorts of questions about the start of their careers, their favorite subjects, and best client stories. We also managed to convince Mark to show us how the magic happens and were able to capture a taste of his technique for a video! Check it out and prepare yourselves to be blown away!

Medical Economics is a healthcare professional publication who, like everyone else, has the upcoming election on the brain. They recently commissioned Niklas Asker to illustrate the candidates for the 2016 race for an article about why healthcare isn't as big of a topic as it was in the past. A very interesting read from the physicians point of view and great portraiture from Niklas! Check it out!
