JOHNNY – SLAMTOWN “Office of Mayor” – Wrestling T-shirt

I already had the pleasure of designing several original custom T-shirt designs for the U.S. wrestler John Hennigan
(John Morrison / Johnny Impact / Johnny Nitro / Johnny Mundo)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Morrison_(wrestler)

Johnny contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me if I felt like doing a new one for him and I of course said “Hell, yeah!”. He gave me a rough outline of what he was looking for. As always it needed to be an 11 or more on the “badass scale” and I was very happy to oblige.

SLAMTOWN – Office of Mayor Shirt design by Ian David Marsden

We went through several different variations. At one point we thought a biker style patch might be fun before we changed direction and ended up with riveted and bolted metal. A very fun project and I can’t wait to wear one of these myself.

Stock Art / Bildarchiv

I get a lot of requests for clip-art or stock-art images.

Although I am not a big fan of clipart myself, as I find it preferable if custom made and created artwork is used wherever possible, I do recognize that for certain cases it is more efficient and obviously there is also a cost factor involved.

For this reason I have made a selection of my artwork available as stock art.

These images are available via Fotofinder, mauritius images GmbH, dpa Picture Alliance, picturemaxx and the Kleinert Bildarchiv which is one of the largest image archives for cartoons and comics.

One of the best places to have an overview of all of the available premium stock illustration art and stock clipart by Ian David Marsden is here: https://bildarchiv.kleinert.de

Over 900 stock art images are available for licensing and download directly through the interface.

News from Ian David Marsden’s illustration studio – October 2018

Welcome to my latest Fall 2018 newsletter with a glimpse of what I am currently working on and recently completed projects.



Dear Reader,

It has been quite a while since my last newsletter. I have been so deeply involved in various projects that I simply did not get around to writing and putting one together for you. I always love to be very busy and active, but it is now really high time to give you a brief update on my recent artwork and activities, so it is with great pleasure that I present to you this October 2018 edition of the Ian Marsden Illustration Newsletter.

Below a selection of sample artwork and highlights from recent projects.

GOOGLE DOODLES

I was delighted and honored that I received a shoutout in the recent “Inside Google” Blog post celebrating 20 years of Google and the history of the Google Doodles. From 1999 to the end of 2000 I was the artist creating all Google Doodles. It is very nice to be remembered in this way.

Many thanks to Google and to Ryan Germick the Principal Doodle Design director.

PUBLISHING / GRAPHIC NOVEL

Some really exciting news: I have signed a book deal with Schiffer Books for my first graphic novel and my first book in the U.S. market. It is for the graphic novel adaptation of “The Way I Was” the adult memoir of the late Broadway and Hollywood composer Marvin Hamlisch. The publication date for the graphic novel is spring 2020.

Many thanks for the excellent representation by my literary agent Anna Olswanger at Olswanger Literary

VIDEOS / EXPLAINER VIDEOS / WHITEBOARD VIDEOS

HAWLIK GESUNDHEITSPRODUKTE

I had the great pleasure of adapting a series of texts about the harvesting and production phases of their high-quality vital mushroom products for Hawlik Gesundheitsprodukte GmbH and transforming them into short videos with elegant watercolor illustrations and pleasing voice overs.

 

In a nutshell – Video production for Hawlik Gesundheitsprodukte GmbH

I was involved from the initial conceptual sketching phase and storyboard, then personally illustrated each scene and added light, unobtrusive animation and finally I produced a series of 6 different videos in 3 languages (English, German, French) for which I also supervised the recording of the voiceover in person in studios in Paris and Berlin.



The German voice was recorded in Berlin with the renowned actor Kaspar Eichel (German synchronization voice of Robert Redford, Richard Dreyfuss) at Livelive studio (in cooperation with the agency Sprecherdatei), the French voice was recorded in Paris with the Actor Daniel Beretta (French synchronization voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger and many others) in collaboration with Titrafilm, the English voiceover was provided by David A. Watson and the agency GreatBritishVoices.

You can see all 6 videos in all different languages on the official Hawlik Youtube Channel Here:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKKl56fStFYNqVAM7uKDTZQ



Having these videos available as a marketing tool for their website but also for trade shows and for their sales department is an invaluable asset. Highly complex processes and details of the production can be relayed to clients and buyers quickly and in a pleasant format in various markets/languages 24/7.

It was a lot of fun working on this rather extensive project and I am delighted that the client was very happy with the result and customer reactions have been extremely positive.

Other video samples in various styles and more information on explainer videos or whiteboard videos can be found on my homepage:

JOHNER INSTITUT

I am delighted to announce that I am collaborating on an ongoing series of training videos for the Johner Institut GmbH in Konstanz, Germany for their e-learning platform. I myself am providing the English language voice and I am also the spokesperson. The collaboration has been highly stimulating and creative and it is a true pleasure to work with Prof. Dr. Christian Johner on his videos for the Johner Institute teaching platform. More details on this project perhaps in a future update.

BUSINESS ILLUSTRATION

As part of the usual illustration services I provide, it has been my great pleasure over the past months to work with various agencies and companies / corporations, many of which are regular clients, on their needs for high quality, clear and appealing business graphics and illustrations for their external or internal communication needs. Here a few recent examples.

WINE LABELS

I am continuing the relatively new avenue of my career of wine logo and wine label designer and artist. My most recent design is a fun logo and label illustration for ‘Domaine Les Tuileries’ Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. I like it a lot personally even though I dialed the “French” button up to 11, evidently.

I got a lovely mention in an article in the French press / Midi Libre. Thank you very much.



The local Mayor’s office in the village where I live asked me if I would design the Mayor’s New Year’s card. I was of course honored to come up with a personalized card and drawing for this purpose.

Thank you very much for taking the time to browse through my newsletter. Unless we speak directly beforehand, my next e-mail to you will be my traditional Holiday / End of the year greeting.

I hope you have a wonderful fall season.

All the very best,

Ian David Marsden
