Jason Seiler - The Weekly Standard Cover - Rubio

Jason Seiler did this cover of Rubio for The Weekly Standard a log time ago. Although the cover got killed in the end because of the change of directions. We still want to share the artwork with you.

Jason is an amazing artists when it comes to quick turnaround assignments. The weekly standard is a weekly publication, obviously. So it is always a rush job when it comes to timing. Jason always manages to pull the assignment off within a week and deliver a quality final on top of everything else on his plate. This is amazing and also a mystery to me.

Well done, Jason! I hope all of you enjoy the piece the same as I do.

Jack Daly - Pleasure Magazine

Jack Daly recently did an illustration for Pleasure Magazine in Denmark. The story revolves around the infamy of the 500 Euro bill and its role in organized crime around the world.



"I was briefed with creating an illustration made clear the links between ‎€500 notes and organised crime. Since the year 2002 the ‎€500 note has been the dominant and obvious currency choice for criminals in Europe. The main reason being that it's the bill with the highest value of all moneybills in the entire world - also it's very light. So huge amounts of money stacks are easily transported and easier to hide. As a result, the European Central bank has been under pressure for quire a few years to stop producing the bill." Says Jack Daly.

Dongyun Lee - Cover, Pension & Investments

At the beginning of the year, Dongyun Lee was commissioned by Pensions & Investments magazine to illustrate their cover about the 1000 largest retirement funds. For a relatively straight forward topic Dongyun brought some fun to cover and expanded the subject matter way beyond its constraints. Always a success with Dongyun!

"It's lovely to live on a raft. We had the sky, up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made, or only just happened- Jim he allowed they was made, but I allowed they happened; I judged it would have took too long to make so many."
