Illustration Newsletter July 2016 Ian David Marsden

 


Hello dear visitors to my blog,

What I love most of all about my profession as an illustrator and designer, is that I get to be creative in all kinds of different areas and I never really know what’s coming next.

Below, I have put together a selection of some of the fun projects I have recently worked on. I hope you enjoy it.

Before we get started let me wish you a wonderful summer, and just in case you are working during the summer months, it might comfort you to know that you are not alone. I will be doing the same.

I am not going away this year and can be reached in my studio both in July and August and can assist you with any illustration needs that may arise. 

All the very best and here now my latest news…

Ian 

PS: My portfolio has been completely updated with brand new work, so if you haven’t visited my homepage in a while, please have a look.

Categories are: My Sketchbook | Google Doodles | Advertising and Business Illustration | Editorial Illustration | Comics and Cartoons | RITZENHOFF | Children’s Book Illustration | Logo and Character Design | Packaging Designs¬†

So, what HAVE I been up to in the past months? Well…

I got to be WILD!…

I got to be STRONG!…

I was a SUPERHERO!¬†(and a SUPER VILLAIN)…

I got to be “FAMOUS!” √įŇłňúŇĹ…


I started my own Instagram feed with snapshots, sketches and doodles.

It’s been up for only a few months and I am delighted that I already have over 2200 wonderful people who are interested enough in my tomfoolery, to follow my feed.

If you are also an instagrammer, come on over and join the fun.

I got to be CLASSY and SOPHISTICATED!…¬†


My lovely wife Sheryl Marsden has founded a shop called Love French Linen featuring gorgeous linen items from the south of France (where we live).

What could be more appropriate than to use her very own in-house creative department for her photography and logo needs?

Even our dog “Watson” now features prominently in several images as the Love French Linen dog. Undoubtedly he will start his very own newsletter soon, when his modelling career takes off. √įŇłňú҆

Sheryl did a wonderful job and put a lot of thought and care into her linen collection. Please have a look and forward to your friends who might be interested in French linens for bedroom, dining room, bathroom and kitchen.

I hope you enjoyed some of the updates and I thank you for your interest.

Son coup de crayon a été remarqué par des publicitaires.
Illustrateur, dessinateur et d√©signer, Ian David Marsden donne libre cours √† son imagination selon les supports avec lesquels il travaille. Il met en image une histoire, un message, des caricatures et s’exprime ainsi avec talent, avec finesse et originalit√©.

Passionné par toutes les créations graphiques, avec peut-être un penchant pour les BD, son coup de crayon a été remarqué par de nombreux publicitaires. Ainsi, il a réalisé une BD publicitaire pour Digades/Dfreeze. Cette enseigne est leader du marché des télécommandes pour le chauffage automobile.
Logo, √©tiquettes, objets…
Il a √©galement cr√©√© le logo de la marque Pastrelmi. Ce logo lui a √©t√© confi√© par son ami Helmi Sigg, un acteur humoriste √©crivain suisse, qui a imagin√© un d√©licieux pastrami made in Suisse. Le pastrami est une recette inspir√©e de la cuisine roumaine. Dans son village, Ian s’est li√© d’amiti√© avec Olivier Panchau, vigneron au domaine de Cammaous. Apr√®s de nombreuses ann√©es dans la viticulture qui lui ont forg√© une solide exp√©rience, Olivier a souhait√© voler de ses propres ailes.
Ian est intervenu dans l’illustration de son d√©pliant publicitaire, dans la cr√©ation de certaines affiches et la d√©coration d’un verre de vin. “Actuellement, je suis en discussion avec plusieurs √©tablissements viticoles pour la cr√©ation des √©tiquettes de vin en √©dition limit√©e, personnalis√©e, avec mes dessins √† l’attention des amateurs et collectionneurs. ” Il cr√©e √©galement des objets utilitaires rigolos, comme des gobelets, des assiettes, des cadres.

Parutions de presse qui soulignent a la fois mon environnement local dans le village de Vacquières (Hérault  34) et mon activité artistique.
