Artist of the week: Hellomarine

Volta by Hellomarine

Marine was born in Paris, grew up in South of France and moved to Brighton to study Graphic Design.

Now living and working in Brighton as an illustrator she divides her time between commissions for clients such as The Guardian, Penguin,Coca-Cola, TruThoughts, Amelia's Magazine, Jazeera Airways... and personal work that she exhibits regularly. Her work has been described as vivid, vibrant, sometimes retro or slightly surreal and has been published in Computer Arts, Etapes Graphiques, Illusive and the Secrets Of Digital Illustration.

She's inspired by her love for music and fashion, the Ye-Ye movement in 60's France, her childhood and all the different people she meets.

Artist of the week: Gemma Correll

'I Need A Wee' card by Gemma Correll

I've decided to start a weekly feature on here [edit: didn't last long!]. One of our artists will be featured and I'll post every Saturday. I'm starting with Gemma Correll as we've recently received some new cards designed by her for Hotchpotch. Image above 'I Need a Wee', below 'Let's Dance' and 'Malcolm'. You can view Gemma's page on our website here.

'Have You No Sense of Decency, Malcolm?' card by Gemma Correll

Gemma Correll's distinctive illustrations are addictive, especially her delightfully abundant images of pugs (including the wonderful Mr.Pickles) and cats.

Gemma graduated from the Norwich School of Art and Design in 2006 with a degree in Graphic Design and now works as a freelance illustrator. Her clients range from Virgin Holidays to the wonderful Anorak Magazine.

Gemma is probably best known for her Pugs Not Drugs design which you can buy on a tote bag here.
